If you are visiting Santander in the summer months and you are looking to enjoy the sea, we recommend crossing the bay (either by car or by popular boats called ‘pedreñeras’) and, after having spent the day on the enormous Somo Beach, heading to Pedreña (barely two kilometers away) for a fish dinner on any of the terraces by the roadside. These restaurants serve all types of grilled fish, from squid rings to bream and jargo. However, the most typical dish is grilled sardines. You will easily find these restaurants that line the entire boulevard connecting both villages, as their trademarks are loud hubbub and the smell of grilling fish. This is the perfect place to get to know the Cantabrian coast.
