It's got beautiful views and great to walk around. The beaches are blue flag with lots to do for the kids from climbing the rocks and looking for fish & little crabs in the pools of water when the tide goes down. Great car parking facilities or you can walk on the board walk from peligros beach all the way... More

The Peninsula of Magdalena was a great surprise! We decided to walk from the Hotel Bahia round the coast and came across this park area. It's free to get in and there is a great big play area for the kids. On the left (as you walk in) there is a Sea Lion area and a walk round the rocks... More

Take a walk in sunny days and you'll find how beautiful Santander is, the bay and also the sea. Incredible place, King in early XX Century knew where to spend the summer

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 :)
