  • Beach cosy and ideal for travelling with children, since being narrow have total visual contact of the same. The evil stairs, but becomes bearable.

  • Small beach and difficult to access since the amount of stairs makes you think to go, but once forgotten that thought, you will enjoy the Emerald water, its rough waves, and its cold and revitalizing water color...

  • This beach is outside the circuit of the city, on the road that leads to the faro de Cabo Mayor, is a small beach very pretty, but uncomfortable for elderly or with some difficulties, because we have to many stairs, it is not advisable to go with small children. Otherwise, the beach is beautiful, with fine sand and crystal-clear water. In the vicinity of the beach is located the municipal golf course, and a coastal path that can be walking and takes you to the beaches of el Sardinero. A good option is to take the coastal path at el Sardinero and walk to Mataleñas, it takes more than one hour, but is a ride beautiful between the sea and the golf course, when we get, sure that we wanted to give us a good dip in Mataleñas beach. If you want to go by car, also is advisable, because it doesn't have much problem to Park, except in the month of August. If you go to this beach, it is advisable that you carry food and drink, where you want to have a good time there.

  • Great place if you want to bring your kids to swim. Not crowded and easy to keep everything in sight. Also lifeguards are on this beach
  • Beautiful beach of fine sand, all in Cantabria. It must have good legs you can access only down a long flight of stairs. The worst thing is the return, upload them.

  • A superb, with a great atmosphere although unsaturated beach. Like the others, with very cold water and fine sand. There are few comforts, that Yes, since kiosks or anything can be found nearby.

  • Beautiful beach. As saturated as the rest when the sun comes out. The cliff on the right and the golf course up make it special.
