We spent 10 days in Santona and I walked along the promenade every day. Lots of local people were out exercising themselves. Children enjoyed jumping in the sea and my son joined in with some local children doing this. A beautiful town.

The promenade is over a mile long and very wide with plenty of seats, it is not commercially developed there being only one restaurant and two kiosks. There are plenty of good eating places in the picturesque old town.

Nice town with lots to see and do. Loverly walks around the town and along the seafront. Can catch a ferry to other local ports in good weather and a great cup of coffee in the bar attached to the bull ring.
