“Incredible Views, Great Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

This is a must see for people who love scenery!! Lots of beautiful flowers and picture perfect views of the water. I am so glad we stumbled upon this place!! We spent maybe 2 hours wandering around checking out the sea lions and taking pictures of the incredible views. It was a great way to spend a chill afternoon.

“Beautiful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

So nice to visit the seals and penguins. Also a replica of old sailing vessels, and interesting historic information. A beautiful palace in the park, with breathtaking views of the Cantabrian Sea.

“Great peninsula with variety of views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Although the peninsula is small, there is a very interesting variety of things to do! You can go to the beach, walk in the small forest, watch the pinguins and sealions, rest a bit with the great view of the palace or go to the great beach and the sea. Very much recommended to wander around when visiting Santander!

“More than an interesting walk out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Terrific coastal views with a mix of heavy ocean freight, yacht racing, history beach tennis, picnics and royal connections make this a really useful introduction to the city, the region and it's culture.

“Nice Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

If you don't want to sit on the beach all day but stretch your legs a bit then this is a nice easy stroll,lots of grass and trees with the Magdalena Palace in the middle, good views out across the bay, bit of a depressing zoo at the end.
