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. The sand is a golden yellow and they are always clean, even after a day of people sunbathing etc. The water... More

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.

The beach is clean and very well looked after and the views are excellent of the surrouding coastline, there is a pleasant wooded park just behind the beach so no overlooking hotels.

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.
