Peaceful walk around the peninsula on the very well maintained grounds of the stately castle. Beautiful view of the ocean.

You do feel somehow that you're transported to another era! Large grounds with forest, green areas, many places to overlook the sea... There is an area with seals and penguins which are well kept although it isn't a proper zoo. At certain times you can see them being fed. There are also some replicas of boats and a life raft....

There are also some pools with seals and penguins that you can see without paying any entry fees. Nice views and nice area with trees to walk through.

An interesting place but a long walk if the road train isn't running. The subsidiary sites of the marine museum and the zoo are interesting

Fairly quiet wooded area with nice views of the surrounding bays. Quiet at the time of year we visited and a nice easy walk around the peninsula makes for some nice views. Only downer is a strange addition of a fenced off area with seals and penguins, obviously loving the unnatural habitat..

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
