Camping Derby Loredo in Cantabria overlooks the blue waters and a quiet sandy beach stretching for over a kilometer.

The campsite has direct access to the beach via a private path and also has its own surf school with courses and equipment rental.

Loredo is located east of the Bay of Santander in the municipality of Ribamontan al Mar, about 6 kilometers from the municipal capital, Carriazo.

The outstanding natural environment that the commune enjoys has made it a major tourist attraction, although agricultural activities have not been entirely abandoned.

Loredo and Somo are the two places with the most tourist facilities.

For trips further afield, Camping Derby Loredo is a good choice as the location is less than half an hour’s drive from the center of Santander and its ferry port.

Santander officially became a city in 1755 thanks to King Ferdinand 6th. In 1833, the Spanish territorial reform gave Cantabria an administrative center for the first time in its history, and in 1983 the Spanish “province” of Santander became the autonomous region of Cantabria.

The city was a favorite summer vacation spot for King Alfonso 13th, sparking a boom in architecture and the development of Santander into a popular seaside resort that is still popular today.

Today Santander is a charming, modern city with a rich cultural and historical heritage and seaside elegance. One of the most beautiful cities in Spain and a preferred destination for a beach holiday.
