  • Wonderful beach. Long, comfortable, clean. With restaurants on the promenade. I was delighted. To be an urban beach is clean and well-kept. Buses that connect with the Centre of Santander with constant flow.

  • Km of sand available! And the spectacle of low tide in the morning and 14 o'clock, here comes the high tide! A shame come to santander and not come here!!

  • I have spent a week on the beach, with Sun and without it. A joy, especially for families. Close to the Centre. Good public transportation.

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.
