Playa de El Puntal, Santander

4.8
Take in the sun at Playa de El Puntal. Swim or surf in the clear, clean water, or play some sports on the large, roomy beach. There is a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from, and the beach is generally not too crowded. If you want a full-body tan, there is a nude section of the beach. A ferry runs every 15 minutes from the maritime museum in Santander Bay, but you can reach the beach by car as well.

  • you take a boat you see a ride get to the beach you have spectacular views of the Bay of santander quiet and then have a restaurant to eat spectacular

  • The strut is almost untouched sand that extends from Somo inland from the Bay of Santander. He is accessed from the village of Somo or Santander on boats that dock near the Palacete del Embarcadero. This second option is the best, because the boat drops you off in the middle part of arenal, a jetty where a bar is located. Being in the middle of the Bay, we can't wait great waves, nor transparent waters, but the view from Santander and the South of the Bay from the beach, with large ships passing by your side while you bathe is priceless.

  • It is a beach that can only be reached by boat or walk a stretch a little longer. You can lose between dunes of fine sand, and you have two bathing areas. A quiet, that is where flows the rio Cubas in the most beautiful Bay of Spain (in my humble opinion) the Bay of Santander, and other area more agitated, as it is the Bay of Biscay, and should heed warnings from aid workers , for our own safety. Take the boat to arrive, in Santander, in the Palacete del Embarcadero, they are the popular REGINAS, step provides you a pleasant promenade, which offers you a unique view of Santander. I encourage you, if you acercáis in the summer to take this means of transportation.
