Santander is a beautiful and elegant resort and being one of the largest city in Cantabria Spain currently having a population close to 200 thousand people. Right in the midst of the beautify city you can enjoy undisturbed views all throughout the bay and the vast greeneries and hills to mountains. The shorefront is beautifully lined with fine sandy beaches.
|Playa Sardinero - Santander - Spain|
There are two stark areas in Santander primarily the old town, a very tight grid of alleys that goes along the shore line of the bay and packed with restaurants and clubs. Along the sandy El Sardinero beach we have the resort district facing the sea.
At the southern part of the head land Playa de la Magdalena beach glow beautifully being overlooked by cliffs and flanked by a windsurfing school popular in summer. Toward the northern part of the head land we have two smaller and somewhat less crowded beaches the Camello and La Concha.
If you find all the city beaches too crowded, catch a taxi-ferry across the bay (departs Puerto Chico every 20min; € 4 return) to the long stretches of dunes at Somo – a major surfing destination where you'll find boards to rent and a summer campsite – and Pedreña.
