  • Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and charming of Santander beaches. It is very near Cabo Mayor lighthouse, and its location not be best for the days where there are northeast (which are many). Your access is somewhat limited, which boasts almost 200 stairs that there is already down to reach it. It is a quiet Cove with unbeatable scenery. Quite well unlike other beaches is Park, it has a parking very close to the beach, a very long street with parking.

  • Amazing place, which is a must-see during your stay in Santander. Going to this beach we have a wonderful walk with great views, you cannot stop doing photos:). I was here in October and the beach was completely empty! On the beach there is a staircase-a large number of in several levels. Just before the staircase is shower, where you can rinse with each other sand and sea water. Is fresh-water drinker. The beach has clean sand, no shells. On shore are interesting rocks, with zatopinymi shells in them. Cliff is protected networks. The color of water is lovely!

  • Although it is rather remote, is difficult to access by the number of steps and complicated for parking. It is the most secluded and private beaches, although it did not escape from the crowds.
