what a beautiful beach. Thoroughly enjoyed a walk along it even though it was autumn.There were quite a lot of people on the sands and wetsuited surfers in the waters waiting for the big wave.Fab views.

Full of well kept gardens, you can reach the beach from the street level and enjoy the beautiful water, soft sand and sunbathing.

Yes, you should go there. A nice beach and not so crowded for the Spanish standard during the summer. A good option is to rent a bike and ride along the cycleway around the coast. You can do it even in the Municipality service with a credit card.

We have become regular visitors to Santander and the surrounding area. This beach always features on our visits. It's clean, with plenty of facilities close by and although it can get busy in high summer, it's never over crowded. The weather can be unpredictable up there but it's a small price to pay for great food, friendly people and amazing... More

Gorgeous beach ... Very picturesque and clean, and in March very quiet. I would definately return to try it in the summer.

Comparatively speaking Sardinero,as far as I am concerned,is the best of its class in northern Spain,from San sebastian all the way to Aviles and Gijon.There is space, gardens, complete facilities,hotels,sports activities,cafes & restaurant everywhere,not to mention the beautiful casino.

This is a fabulous beach and clearly popular without being overcrowded but we were disappointed on our visit to find a lot of sanitary lining papers all over the beach on our visit in September.
