From the lighthouse there is a nice path going down to the beach. We just went until the end of the half island with our dog. Very nice view to Santander and the Atlantic Ocean, stunnig rock fomations a lot of nature to explore! We will come back!
Along the coast of the Parque de Matalenñas the view is breathtaking and lots of people were enjoying their walk. Found inner calmness just by seeing the Atlantic ocean on the cape.
Nice place to visit for the views of the coast and the Picos mountains in the distance. There was an art exhibition in the lighthouse of lighthouse paintings! You couldn't go upstairs in the lighthouse which was a shame. It was free entry though. There was a nice looking cafe nearby.
The park is huge and the lighthouse can be seen on a steep cliff hanging over the Atlantic ocean. Stunning view, strong wind and savage country side. The access from the park to the Cabo Mayor is through a narrow path and stairs. In front of the lighthouse there is a monument to the victims of the civil war and... 更多

Not to strenuous and well worth the effort of the climb up to the lighthouse with superb views of the Santander bay. I used Google Earth to locate the pathway at the beginning of the walk next to the café bar Caronna which served a good coffee on our return.
This park is full of abundant wildlife, breathtaking scenery and many interesting species of butterflies and birds. It's a highlight of Santander, and a good opportunity to be away from people yet not completely away. The rocks here are excellent for walkers, the altitude is impressive enough, and it's all spotlessly clean mostly. You should arrive here by carefully following... 更多
We followed the Matalenas coastal path to the Faro de Cabo Mayor. Lots of information boards along the path explain the different sea-birds that can be seen. The coastal views are spectacular and the path is an easy walk. We went on a Monday and the lighthouse was closed....it didn't really matter as it was worth the walk for the... 更多
