  • very nice beach, easy public transport access. Services of all kinds, restoration, sun loungers, parasols, rather awnings, even surfing can be done, there is school. I really liked. Despite this better not be a long time, and go every day

  • Typical example of a Cantabrian Beach, in the North of Spain, a few meters from the Magdalena Peninsula, Ideal for walking or spend a day basking in the Sun
