"The Natural Backdrop" Top 5 Page for this destination Santander Favorite Tip by DanielF
Santander General: 32 reviews and 74 photos
Favorite thing: The beautiful natural backdrop is what makes the Bay of Santander so special. A range of imposing mountains offer a great panorama which is more likely to be linked to an Alpine landscape than with a marine environment and yet, the presence of the sea is so evident and overwhelming. The closest of all the mountains is called Peña Cabarga, with two tv antennas on top. It is possible to drive or walk to the summit and enjoy a spectacular view of the bay, the city and the surrounding mountains.
For its esthetic qualities, the Bay of Santander has joined the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World, a private organisation which probably only has an anecdotic value, but includes among its members such beautiful places as San Francisco Bay in California, the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay in France or HaLong Bay in Vietnam.
