I had seen a view of this beach and I was attracted by the rock formation on the sea that named this beach: The beach of the camel “Playa del Camello.” It had rained quite a lot last night and once at Santander, the weather still looked ominous!

Nice secluded beach, but with easy access, next to the entrance to the Magdalena peninsula. We saw many people sunbathing, other playing ball. The sand is soft and clean.

We rented an umbrella and chairs for 4 euros each for day, very comfortable. There are vendors in the area where you can buy something to drink and... More
