We went to see the Playa del Sardinero and enjoyed walking along the paved sidewalk that goes along the beach. The beach is beautiful and has plenty of sand on it. There are restaurants and cafeterias across the street where one can take some refreshment.

I arrived just in time to enjoy the Sunset. Had a nice walk along the promenade. In the morning I went walking and swimming in the beach. Wonderful views from inside the water of the city. Clean beach and smiling people. It seems that it is true that the unhappy people are the big city people. Visit. Walk. Swim. Enjoy.

This is a lovely spot - right in the town and full of happy people. It's a delight to see families playing ball sports and having fun.

We were there in March, so we didn't actually stay much by the beach. But the beach was clean, the sand seemed fine and the water clean too. And the view from the main road onto the Sardinero beach is beautiful

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
