Mataleñas Beach

A peaceful paradise.

This small, paradisiacal cove is located just before the Santander Lighthouse. To access the beach, you must first go down numerous steps, but before you do so, make sure you stop at one of the lookouts and admire the stunning view. You will see a mixture of cliffs, surrounding parks, the Bay of Biscay and the beach, which is completely disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is the perfect, peaceful place to relax and get away from the city. The entrance to the beach is often filled with canoeists, and these types of canoe are unique to Santander. As you will see, it is a very popular pastime and we recommend that you try it for yourself. If you plan on visiting Mataleñas, remember to bring food and drinks, so that you don’t have to go up and down the huge flight of steps. Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy the beach.
