This beach is situated on the coast of Trasmiera (the name of the area) joining the Puntal and Loredo and offering seven kilometres of golden sandy beach. As it faces the open sea, the waves are often strong.

It was given the blue Euopean flag for the quality of its waters and its long extension of clean, fine sand.

Cantabria, with the Cantabrian sea in the north, to the west Asturias, to the south Palencia and Burgos and to the east Vizcaya is very well communicated by sea, air and land.

For everyone who visits Cantabria, Santillana del Mar is a must. It is, without a doubt, one of the most valued villages, both historically and artistically in Spain. Every part of it is a monument.
Picos de Europa.

In the western part of the peaks the Covadonga Mountain Park can be found. It was declared National Park by His Majesty DON ALFONSO XIII in 1918, being the first in Spain and one of the earliest in the world.
Trekking can be defined as an activity following, on foot, routes previously marked by conventional signs. It is divided into LONG DISTANCE, with six or more stages and SHORT DISTANCE with less than six which can be done in one day or weekend apart from this, there are many short, unmarked routes and paths in interesting areas which can be walked leisurely.
