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

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

Golden sand, cleaned early morning and litter bins emptied twice daily but no litter swirling about on the promenade.
