Beaches, Natural environment and attractions

Explore Costa Verde's beaches and natural environment

The 60+ beaches that make up the coastline of Cantabria are very diverse, from the bustling Blue Flag beaches around Santander to unspoilt stretches of soft sand such as Pur Diaz, which is perfect for birdwatching. All water sports are catered for, including windsurfing, kayaking and diving. The little resort town of Covachos has a beautiful beach that is popular with nudists. At Gulpiyuri, you can walk across a meadow to find a unique beach 100m from the sea. The estuaries, marshlands and mountain ranges of Cantabria support the many rare plants, birds and animals to be found in the region's numerous ecological reserves.

Food & Weather

Food and Drink

Thanks to the temperate climate, the gastronomic delights of Cantabria are amongst the best in Spain. Shellfish, squid and anchovies are local delicacies; try the blue cheeses such as queso picon that is often served with steak. Sobaos are buttery sponge cakes served at breakfast. Local pork products are delicious; wash your meal down with local cider or artisanal beers.

Weather and climate

Cantabria has warm summers and mild winters: snow sometimes falls in the mountains. In summer, average daytime temperatures are in the 20s, perfect for days on the beach. The region’s maritime climate means that rain showers are possible at any time of the year; this accounts for the verdant landscape, so different from the rest of Spain.
