Puerto Chico (Little Harbor) is the very core of Santander, from earlier times when it was the home of the city's fishing fleet. Pleasure craft moor here today and it offers splendid views of the bay and access to the Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria.

Good place for a nice walk, but no bars or restaurants by the sea, they are across a busy main road, which is a terrible pity!!!

Thought it may be more of a fishing port than it was, its a small marina, nowhere directly nearby to sit and watch, the facilities are across a wide road.

I'm not sure what I should write here, it was just a part of the port with a couple of statues, very nice for having a walk in the evening.

Nice gentle walk by the harbour ,can see all the boats and keep your eyes peeled for some big fish! There is a cycle point where you can hire a bike for a small fee ad if you follow the harbour round it leads you straight past the maritimo museum to the beach. *Although the port is a sheer drop...

Great selection of good value bars and restaurants in this area and only a ten minute walk from Silken Coliseum Hotel. Try Restaurante Bodegas mazon, you won't be disappointed by the ambiance and value. Stay away from the house white wine, very poor taste and we sent it back. No problems however with doing this.

In this area there are lots of cafes and restaurants, a good place to "people-watch." Many residents of Santander come here on weekends.
