  • After the temporary of 2013 that is led Middle Beach the truth is that da pena. When there is high tide the sardinero does honor to its name (not by roasting sardines) and swimmers have just been canned in the little beach that is. At low tide the "paseucos" to the camel Beach are forced. The beach, to be of the more busy in summer is of the more clean in which have State. Not understand how can have schools of surf when not there are waves almost throughout the year.

  • Beautiful urban beach in Santander, with great ride to enjoy walking with good sea views or have a drink in one of its terraces.

  • Fine sand, the broad iron and precious water from the Bay of Biscay. The first beach is especially good for surfers.
