Santander Port

Santander's ferry port is located right in the center of the city on the waterfront of Santander Bay. Near the port there are many places of interest such as the Pereda Gardens, many restaurants, stores and hotels. Since the port was located in the center of the city, its own tourist infrastructure is quite modest, there is a large parking lot, offices and a checkpoint. Access roads are well developed, but traffic jams are likely in season. Since there are always many tourists in Santander, the best choice – booking a ferry ticket at least a month before the trip, reservations can be made on our website. The ferry is a good choice.
