My first surfing experience
This beach is nearly 2 miles of good waves and fine sand. You get to Somo (next to Santander), park the car in the garage, arrive at the beach and suddenly it's all surfboards, wetsuits, and waves.
The scenery is something right out of a postcard. There's a little wind and you're all of a sudden struck by a tremendous desire to get into the water and enjoy the play between the cool water and the hot sun. This is one beach that you can’t miss on your vacation to Cantabria.
If you want to learn to surf, it's perfect. I rode my first wave last week at this beach. You can rent a board for four hours for dirt cheap and, although the best thing to do is take a class, you can go try it out yourself if the waves aren't too fierce.
