Beautiful long promenade with busy fishing port at one end. Anchovies are caught & canned in abundance here. There is a ferry boat with takes you to Laredo just minutes away for just €3

It's not bad at all, but it is" another port". There's a pleasant esplanade, the tourist office people are really helpful. But we didn't stay long enough for me to give a clear review.

Santona is the poor relation to Laredo on the other side of the estuary and really hasn’t much going for it - especially out of season. The port is divided into two sections - one side is a small marina which is also where tourist...More

The town, the Anchovy Capital of Spain, is really quiet, absolutely typically Spanish, almost no tourists out of season, pleasant walks along the main promenade and the fishing port itself. There is the usual myriad of pleasant little cafes for sipping and people watching, equally...More

We spent 10 days in Santona and I walked along the promenade every day. Lots of local people were out exercising themselves. Children enjoyed jumping in the sea and my son joined in with some local children doing this. A beautiful town.

we didn't explore far as the weather wasn't great but there is a nice little bar at the bull-ring and a long,level promenade and some interesting sculptures

The promenade is over a mile long and very wide with plenty of seats, it is not commercially developed there being only one restaurant and two kiosks. There are plenty of good eating places in the picturesque old town.

Nice town with lots to see and do. Loverly walks around the town and along the seafront. Can catch a ferry to other local ports in good weather and a great cup of coffee in the bar attached to the bull ring.
