About
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.

Beautiful

Perfect for the sunset stroll by the sea, you can sit there and watch the ships go by. On the other side are cute little boats.

Scenic and historical
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is the site of one of the first harbors in this city which was founded during roman times and served as an important harbor for Spanish Castile for centuries while the south of Spain was Islamic. You will find a nice promenade for walking with a very calm and scenic view. Definitely worth visiting especially if in the city.

Really not much of an attraction but worth seeing
Jul 2018
There is a waterfront promenade. Wear comfortable shoes and prepare to walk a lot. There is not much to see and few places to eat. Best to continue to the center for restaurants.

I'm Going Back
Apr 2018 • Family
Not been here before, but I'm going back.
Small complex, beautifully maintained gardens, really friendly onsite staff, and some lovely bungalows.
Great views from every property and so handy to shops and some restaurants, yet so peaceful and quiet.
Not a venue for stag nights or hen party's, but people looking to chill and soak up the sun. Nice pool.

A rather uninteresting marina
Apr 2017 • Solo
Walk (not drive) to Puerto Chico as the walk along the seafront is rather nice. The marina is has no longer any historical 'old' feel to it. That is a shame as the history is interesting.

A taste of the old Santander (sort of)
Oct 2016 • Couples
Puertochico was Santander's fishermen's port over 100 years ago, and before that even commercial vessels docked there. Nowadays, Puertochico is a marina for pleasure craft. There is a breakwater on the South side, where one can go for a walk or fishing. Both in the nearby areas of Castelar and Paseo de Pereda one can see old buildings going as far as to the 18th Century. There are also numerous restaurants and tapas bars in the area where one can drop in for a glass of wine. A beautiful area worth visiting when in Santander.

Nice stroll on waterfront
Jul 2016 • Family
This is a nice, wide, sidewalk by the marina. There are some interesting statues and some benches to sit. Plenty of boats to look at coming and going from the marina and the bay.

Spend a tranquil hour or two
Jul 2016 • Couples
You can spend a lovely couple of hours here just watching the yachts and boats potter about. There are some great seats to relax on and in the sunshine it is a good place to be. It is a short walk back into the town.
