About Cantabria

Along its 130 miles of gorgeous Atlantic coastline there is a panorama of beautiful beaches and picturesque coves many of which are blissfully free of development. Add rugged green headlands for invigorating walks, sweeping estuaries, pretty fishing ports to wander around and cafes to refuel in. This is a seaside experience that's difficult to better.
