Brilliantly maintained safe white sand beach that has something for everyone.. Apart from the glorious views overlooking this beach from. The adjoining walkways...this is a beach that offers something for everyone as well as pristine sand...nothing not to like.

Most of the hotels were here with wonderful views of the Atlantic.The beach is flat when the tide is out ideal for walking.Magdalena beach is close but better in my opinion.

No wonder the blue flag flies high. The middle section you'll get a nice spot still sheltered, the upper end is excellent for surfing when the waves are high and usually they are, the bottom end (nr Magdalena) is the busiest.

Santander may not have the weather to compete with the south of Spain (although it can get pretty close on times) but what it does have are some of the best natural beaches anywhere on the coastline of Spain.

Fabulous beach, best we have ever been on. The sunrise is amazing. The weekend is very busy with the shoreline filled with beach clad people walking back and forth in their droves. A very 'fit' place to be.
