Tragically, much of Santander was destroyed in a huge blaze in 1941, including most of the old quarter. Modern Santander therefore lacks many of its original ancient features and architecture, but retains a Spainish character and pace of life that’s hard to resist. Many visitors make a beeline for the nearby resort of El Sardinero, just a short drive from the city. Here you can enjoy beaches, bars and the pleasure of wriggling your toes in the fine yellow sand. A short way along from El Sardinero, a lighthouse stands surrounded by lush green cliff tops and a few very reasonably priced restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. The city itself has access to three decent, if a little crowded, beaches - Playa de Castaneda, Playa del Sardinero, and Playa de la Concha.
Rent a car in Santander and enjoy the freedom that comes with having your own mode of transport. With so many more secluded beaches and coves dotted along the coastline, you will want to explore a little further away from the city. Rent a car and find the perfect place to top up your tan or simply relax with a good book!
