  • It is a beach of Santander, overlooking the Cantabrian Sea (not a Bay), crystal clear waters and a beautiful environment, between Cabo Mayor lighthouse and Golf (municipal, public) its name. You can walk or by bus. There is not always sufficient for cars parking.

  • Beach with access by stairs, unknown to tourists who are not Santander, Sardinero clean next and very this cozy next to the faro de Cabo mayor.

  • This sandy beach is beautiful sandwiched between the coast and a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by high rocks. The sea is a deep inlet. Beach is reached by a long flight of stairs. On the spot is (thankfully) no catering. Car park nearby (top), but no idea if that is large enough on a hot Beach day. Weather well worth a visit.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful, very beautiful cala. Bad, stairs, not suitable for elderly people or for travelling with children.
