Get over to Green Spain for grand times by the sea... Make no mistake, this part of Cantabria in northern Spain is very green and it does, sometimes, rain. The sun also shines a lot and on the bright, smart site of Camping Virgen del Mar five minutes’ walk from the beach, you’ll be glad of the sea breezes rustling through the surrounding woods.
The hermitage on the peninsula behind is devoted to the saintly protector of nearby Santander and the site has a homely, haven-like atmosphere as well. Flowers, trees and lawns soften the light and there’s a reassuring attention to detail throughout this family-friendly spot. There’s a supermarket for supplies, communal barbecue areas dotted round the site for everyone to use and, when the idea of outdoor grilling doesn’t get your pulse racing, a café and restaurant. Keeping the kids content, here’s a separate pool alongside the main one for smaller splashers, a well-equipped playground and in the woods around the site some thousand-odd different species of wildlife to spot. That should keep them busy...
For quick dips and clambers on the rocks, it’s a five-minute walk to the little beach on the Isola del Virgen, bigger stretches are just round the coast at Playa de San Juan de la Canal (10 minutes) and Playa de la Canallave (20 minutes); the latter is surrounded by a dune reserve that’s fab for family rambles.
Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/07 and 31/08 (subject to weather conditions).

If you’re seriously into beach and watery activities, seek out Salvé 45 minutes' drive away for its long stretches of sands and watersports galore... but if you’re more of a mooch and see sort, just walk or drive and keep your eyes open; at conservative estimates, Cantabria’s coast has 60 beaches.
For walks inland, the nature trails of the Cabárceno Natural Park (20 minutes) are good for a half-day adventure; many visitors combine wildlife rambles with a trip to see the really wild life in the two adjacent safari parks and zoo. Though man-made and involving the sinking of several villages, the Ebro reservoir (an hour) has become a beauty spot and destination for hikers, boat cruisers and windsurfers alike.
Sometimes dismissed as a busy port, Santander (20 minutes) has a calming seafront park and popular beaches; surfers head to Sardinero when the waves are right, sightseers to the striking Catedral de la Asunción and snackers to the legion of fab bars and eateries dishing up fresh seafood.
An hour and a quarter away, Bilbao is worth the trip for its Guggenheim museum (and the building it's housed in), its two museums devoted to Basque culture and history and the cliffs and beach just outside at Getxo.
