The Sardinero beaches

The sea's lover.

People call this area Santander La Marinera and it is said to be the sea’s lover, after one of the capital’s most popular songs. Regardless of whether this is true or not, Santander undeniably boasts one of the most beautiful coastlines you will ever see. Almost all of its beaches glisten with white sand and stretch all the way to the cliffs at Cabo Mayor Lighthouse. Perhaps some of the most popular beaches are found at Sardinero, which are divided into ‘the first’ and ‘the second’. They are separated by the popular Piquio Gardens and are a prime example of Santander Bay’s magnificence, sheltering bathers from the force of the waters in the Bay of Biscay. These beaches are not just renowned for their beauty and clear water, but also for their surroundings, from Magdalena Palace to the fields of El Sardinero, which are wonderful for sightseeing and discovering the Santander coastline. This is Santander.
