    Lovely sandy beach in Santander protected on both sides, you come along the path that leads to the Faro de Cabo Mayor, at the end of the Beach the second Sardinero, between the houses and the hotel there is a small road/trail that leads to the lighthouse. 10/15 min walk where you can enjoy the views of this city. Got the surprising thing is the length of this beach. The Sea being Ocean is a little choppy but you can easily do the bathroom. To get there are several steps to follow. At the beach there are showers to wash off the salt and sand. At the beginning of the stairs there is a pickup bar while a real bar, proceed to the lighthouse or go back. It is not equipped. But there is still the service of the lifeguards.

    One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever had the opportunity to see. Crystal clear water. Beautiful landscape, can also be giving a ride to the beach of el Sardinero, absolutely beautiful also. That Yes, one pass of steps (stairs) to access the Mataleñas beach... They should solve this inconvenimente. We were going with a two young children and a cart and it was an Odyssey.

    One of the beaches with the best views of Santander, low a few steps but worth its crystal clear waters and clean sand. You can take a walk around a golf course that takes you to the beach of LOS MOLINUCOS and if you continue to access the SARDINERO. Do not hesitate, come!

Where to stay in Santander

For views over the water and a wide selection of restaurants, consider staying near the Puerto Chico, or "little port," area. Lodging on the historical Camino de Santiago en Santander street puts you in the path of many of the city's walking tours. The streets that jut off Alameda de Oviedo are full of markets, cafes, and shops that put you in the middle of activity.
