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.

Get lost in the woods, get out of the roads. Looking romantic nooks and use caution with cliffs. Carpe diem.

Nice park, parts of it were busy, other parts were very peaceful. There is a play area for kids, a lighthouse, gorgeous views of Santander and the Sardinero, a palace built for the King and Queen of Spain, and even penguins and sea lions in a free mini zoo. Definitely worth taking a loop around this peninsula.

We were so surprised to find this place on our walk round Santander. It is free to go in and the penguins and seals are a real surprise. It is lovely to see them so close to the sea looking so healthy and happy. We walked all around the Peninsula which is very pretty with some lovely views.

We visited in May 2015 as a family. It is a lovely and beautiful place to walk around. The grounds are well-kept and it is a great place to take photos. Beautiful vistas and a relaxing place to visit!

Lovely views, easy walking, immaculate gardens. Not far from the town. People can rest or sunbathe in the lower parts of the gardens. Seal lions and penguins at the start of the pathway round.

Spanish friends took us to this Park for the Santander Music Festival 2016 to see the headlining act : Love of Lesbian. The area is spacious and gives out on the sea, a real beautiful spot.
