This area along this coast is know as Green Spain, and this peninsula is a sort of manicured countryside, right on the top of the rugged, beautiful coast, but just down the road from magnificent Santander, which is the greenest coastal city I've ever seen....More

A little outside the city centre, this peninsula hosts the splendid Magdalena place, as well as a large park with various nautical and other attractions, a bar, and access to beaches.

The Peninsula is one of the attractions in Santander because it has the Palacio de la Magdalena and also a small zoo wher you can watch penguins and seals. Very nice view of the city, the beaches, and the bay.

Breathtaking views and awesome tour guide. If you saw the novela, “Gran Hotel” where love conquered all, you fell in love with this palace. You can also walk the park grounds.

Would recommend to go here for about 2-3 hours to enjoy the peninsula and all the beautiful surroundings. Interesting tour and history

Lovely place to go for a walk. All around the views are stunning from the top of the hill. Would advise finding out about opening hours if you're interested to go into the Palacio, I think it's only by guided tour at certain times.

I am not sure but the paths are wide enough. There is a bike hire outside so my feeling would be yes. I think it would be nice to cycle around it.
