This is a beautiful place for a leisurely walk if you have an hour or two to spare. There's a trail that passes by a stunning castle with equally stunning views of the ocean. There are sea lion and penguin pools and some quirky sculptures and boats along the walk. As is often the case in Spain, everything is free... More

You can hire Boris bikes, just like in London from various points on sea front. Think we paid 2 euros but may have been free, will need to wait for bank statement. Marked cycle track right up coast and to football stadium. Great way to see Peninsula and beaches.

If this is the #1 attraction in Santander then it proves that The city has very little to offer. We walked from the centre of Santander which took about 50 mins. It was quite a nice walk along the sea front and along the beach, this peninsula offers a palace which isn't open to the public, a lighthouse which isn't... More

The views to the ocean, lighthouses and surrounding areas are nice. There is even a small "zoo" with penguins and sea lions in the area. Pack your own picnic as there are no nice places for food.

It was a beautiful day and we simply took a leisurely and slow paced stroll around the peninsula, sometimes deviating from the main path to enjoy the views more. There is sufficient tree shade throughout so we never got too "cooked" by the sun. The beaches are beautiful and we even decided to enjoy a paddle - others were waist... More

We walked around the peninsula on a hot day and there was plenty of shade and a variety of excellent views - inland to the bay and the city front and also, once you reach the tip of the peninsula, outward to the sea and the coastline, and back across to the Sardinero beaches.We walked on a steady gradual incline...

We spent a lot of time at the beach by yhe peninsula and on the overcast day we decided to take the walk up the hill. It is a very peaceful area with lots of trees and areas to relax. There are benches by the cliff side so you can watch the waves rolling in and take in the sounds... More

On the day we caught the ferry we spent the day exploring. Santander has beautiful beaches and is a great place to enjoy the natural scenery. World class and just the loveliest place and people.
