8-Mataleñas Beach

Definitively, this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cantabria. In fact, this is the perfect beach to relax and get away from the bustle and hustle of Santander. In fact, this small and paradisiacal cove with absolutely crystal-clear water is located on the outskirts of the city (4,5km from Puerto Chico), just before the Santander Lighthouse.


Beside the beach is a County Council 9-hole golf course. There is a promenade that starts at this beach, runs along the entire length of the golf club and ends up in El Sardinero To access this incredible 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. 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.

ACCESS: beside the Golf course, at the Avenida del Faro you will find the stairs to access to the beach.
