Camping Derby Loredo in Cantabria offers views of blue waters and a quiet sandy beach over a kilometer long.

The campsite has direct access to the beach via a private path and also offers its own surf school with lessons 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 excellent natural environment enjoyed by the municipality has made it an important tourist attraction, although agricultural activities have not been completely abandoned.

Loredo and Somo are the two towns with the largest number of tourist establishments.

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

Santander officially became a city in 1755, thanks to King Ferdinand VI. 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 town was a favorite resort of King Alfonso XIII, leading to a boom in architecture and the development of Santander as a resort 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 privileged destination for beach holidays.
