The peninsula has many attractions - and is surrounded by several beaches. It is a wonderful area to explore by foot, and we walked there from our hotel Sardinero, along the many exquisite beaches. The Peninsula also offers a tram to take you to the top of the park, where you will find Magdalena Palace (we enjoyed a tour of... More

This is a very easy walk right around the headland, with many interesting viewpoints. Especiall the Palace de Magdelena in the middle, well worth a visit. Lovely cafe half way round for morning coffee. A must do if you are staying in Santander.

Peninsula of Magdalena ist a must-see in Santander. Either you love the beach or the mountains, or if you're looking for cultural seightseeings, this is the place. Surrounding the Palacio there's this unique landscape, which also includes a mini-zoo which is worth the visit :).

Liked the little train to take you up the hill, very nice view, and the seals in the pond worth a look - sadly all the commentary on the train is in Spanish and no English. Also there was no stop at the top so we could not go in to the Real Palace.

The peninsula is very nice and gives you a very good view of Santander coastline. The royal palace is a cute building in the middle of a sort of protected small park. It is a very good place for a walk.

Enjoyed a lovely walk around the peninsula on a couple of sunny afternoons. Didn't bother with the tour of the palace, there's plenty to look at just around the bay. The penguins are also entertaining :)

The area around and behind the Faro de la Cerda is by far the best part of the Peninsula. The Palace isn't really a feature at all in terms of architecture. My school was actually grander, although I'm reliably informed that many cultural events open to the public take place regularly here during the summer months. The east side of... More

If you visit Santander, this is one of the places to visit. I would start a walk either by Reina Victoria Street, with the magnicient views of the Bay of Santander, which is said to be one of the most beautiful bys in the world) or along the beach promenade to get to the Peninsula of Magdalena, summer home of...

Some beautiful views and good photo opportunities on a misty evening. A nice stroll after spending time in the museums.
