  • The beach is beautiful with bars on the promenade of different specialties, cafes, ice cream etc., is situated somewhat distant from the Centre of Santander, so you have to go by car or in urban transportation, nearby the Casino, as there are quite a few hotels of good quality and some luxury in summer are given concerts on the promenade
