Interesting facts about this location

Bay of Santander

The Bay of Santander is both a comarca of Cantabria and the largest estuary on the North coast of Spain, with an extension of 22.42 km² 9 km long and 5 km wide. Due to the influence of Santander and its metropolitan area, nearly half of the population of the region is gathered around it, which makes the anthropic pressure on this area of water quite notable. The entrance to the Bay is lined by the Sardinero beaches, where the Isle of Mouro with its lighthouse can be found.
