Boat trips were not readily available in May. Perhaps they are more frequent in later summer months.
we got the boat across the bay from Santander waterfront area to Somo. lovely trip over, great way to see the city from the sea and really cheap. had lunch at the surfing club.
A must to go beach if you are staying in Santander for a couple of days. You may take the boat service from Santander. It is wild beach where you can take long and nice walks. Try the local restaurant on the beach (the one with the green pier). Great fresh fish with excellent service.
Best beach on entire north coast of Spain. Good for kitesurfing, surfing, sunbathing, beach walks. Have lunch, coffee at the surf cafe at the surf centre. Try the tortilla with chorizo. They also do great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. The whole beach is 4 km so no matter how crowded you can walk to find your own spot... 更多
If you're staying in Santander, take a trip across to Somo just to visit the beach - we went on an amazing sunny day and pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves. Great place just to relax and look out across the bay, even went for a swim!
Take the wee boat from the Palacete del Embarcadero just across from the Bank of Santander arch and the tourist information office. It only costs a few euros for a return ticket. Stay on until the end. There isn't much in Puntal. But from the ferry slipway you can either walk the bay side or the better Bay of Biscay... 更多
Beautiful beach. Easy to walk. Can take buses back to city centre or any where along the beach. There are some resturants along the beach but did'nt try them.
