Great beaches, buzzing nightlife, and some seriously amazing restaurants make Santander a top pick for a Spanish city break.
It might not have the heat of the southern coast, but it also lacks the cheesy atmosphere that goes with mass tourism. That’s not to say there isn’t a holiday atmosphere: the Cantabrian coast is very popular with domestic tourists, and during the summer months it can get pretty warm.
