Sardinero is a popular beach located in the Spanish city of Santander, Cantabria. Sardinero is actually two beaches, divided by the gardens of Piquio about one-quarter the way along its length, stretching from the Magdalena Peninsula to MataleƱas; two further adjacent beaches are also sometimes included. Together about 4,300 feet (1,300 meters) long and 260 feet (80 meters) deep, the two beaches feature fine golden sand and moderate waves; they are bordered by a wide promenade running their entire length. Sardinero is lined with hotels, restaurants, and a casino, and is regarded as one of the most elegant beach resorts in Spain.
