Reviewed 19 March 2013

Gorgeous beach ... Very picturesque and clean, and in March very quiet. I would definately return to try it in the summer.

“Best Beach”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Comparatively speaking Sardinero,as far as I am concerned,is the best of its class in northern Spain,from San sebastian
all the way to Aviles and Gijon.There is space, gardens,
complete facilities,hotels,sports activities,cafes & restaurant
everywhere,not to mention the beautiful casino.

“Needed a bit of a sweep”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

This is a fabulous beach and clearly popular without being overcrowded but we were disappointed on our visit to find a lot of sanitary lining papers all over the beach on our visit in September. Hopefully this was the result of some unpleasant blip which has been sorted out by now, if not it needs to be rectified or it will not deserve its clean beach status.
There is a good live webcam which shows the state of the surf available from spanishguides.com

“Northern beach”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

As all the northern beaches, there are not many sunny and warm days, but that's also why these kinds of beaches are cool: quite a few people go there to walk in the wintertime. It's a different way of seeing the beach, but I prefer it like that: almost empty, all yours :)

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

I was told that el sardinero is one of the 10 cleanest beaches in the world and it really is. It's on the ocean, so windy, and the water is quite cold, but still this beach is something you need to see if you're planning a trip in northern spain.
