Holy crap, Santander is beautiful

Santander was one of the best surprises of my recent trip to Spain. I didn’t really know anything about it except that the Spanish royals had a summer palace there. I was not prepared for the long stretches of breathtaking ocean views and expansive beaches. (Although, hello, I guess that’s why the royals had their palace there.) I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about a place so beautiful.

Just look.

The foamy waves crashing on the rocky coastline reminded me of home. Doesn’t it look a little like Big Sur? Well, except for the busy beaches with blue umbrellas. I don’t know if it gets hot enough in central California for that very often.

I’m writing a longer post on getting around in Santander, the blue cafe I liked so much I went three times in one day, and the storm that rolled in at the end of the day, but I had to share some of these photos first. Partially because I think they’re so beautiful they deserve their own post, and partially because I took so many photos in Santander that they won’t all fit in one blog post. (But seriously.)

Have you been to Santander? What did you think?

    1. Same! Basque Country was as beautiful as you described, I’m so glad I got to go.

      I ended up being able to spend about 45 minutes hanging out in Lille but I really liked it! It was a beautiful day and I saw so many cute boutiques and fun restaurants walking around the vieille ville. I wish I could have stayed longer.

  1. I too was surprised how beautiful Santander is. Elegant boulevards, lovely promenade by the beach, delicious food and the unforgettable ‘maritime fee’l to it. I’ll go back in a heartbeat.
