What a wonderful beach! It must be a couple of kilometers long and wide as well. It’s almost the perfect place combining the city with a beach and you can walk everywhere. It’s very safe, clean and well marshalled with plenty of big waves to...More

What the Sardinero lacks in facilities it makes up for in natural beauty. Nice clean living locals who appreciate good food, good times with family and friends and the natural environment they are blessed with. Laid back and easy going (by northern Spanish standards). The...More

We were well impressed with this magnificent beach, the stretch of sand was so clean. The waves were fiercer than we expected although my other half did manage a brief swim. It was lovely to see people of all ages enjoying the space and sunshine....More

Great promenade area and the beach is very long distance wise. It is also very clean. A credit to the local council. Ideal for a long stroll in the sunshine.

This is a long and wide expanse of sandy beach - in fact it’s so long it’s divided by a small rocky headland into two sections. Visited early March and it was deserted but no doubt it’s busy with sun worshipers during summer months. A...More

Right beside the park. Enough parking space(at least in low season), bars, toilets- so everything you could need during the beach time. In September the weather was not for water baths, so cannot comment the water.

We first saw this beach from a small park with a mirador near the casino, looking across its full breadth on an autumn afternoon - very impressive. Must be busy in the summer

This is a surfing beach and not a swimming beach as such. The waves would be too strong for casual swimmers but the beach is huge and great for sunbathing. plenty of beach restaurants and perfect for strolling. Don't miss it.

I would say 4-5 euros. And yes, there are cabs near the beach. Plenty of them by the Casino and by Feygon. There is also regular bus service.
