Beach destinations. Cantabrian Coast

Cantabria is one of those destinations that you fall in love with and need to return again and again. Sea, mountains, landscapes, spectacular beaches…

More than 200km of coastline, from San Vicente de la Barquera to Laredo. The beaches of El Sardinero in Santander, Oyambre with its impressive dunes and natural landscapes, or the beach of La Salvé in Laredo are some of the best known, but practically the entire coastline of Cantabria is dotted with beautiful beaches and coves surrounded by nature.
