Cycle lanes make the city an ideal place for cycling enthusiasts. Don’t worry if you don’t have a bike; there are numerous points all over the capital where you can get one. In recent years this has been the form of transport chosen by many to practice sport and at the same time enjoy the landscape and the streets of Santander.
The relief of the Cantabrian coast has encouraged the establishing of maritime ports which allow fishing and practising water sports practically all year round.
Likewise there are many beaches in Cantabria suitable for surfing. The following beaches stand out: those of Los Locos in Suances, Canallave in Liencres, the First and Second El Sardinero beaches in Santander, Merón in San Vicente de la Barquera, and Berria in Santoña. Santander itself has Surf Schools such as that of El Sardinero, Molinucos, and the Ahau Surf School and the Puertochico marina in the centre of the city.
The golf playing tradition in the region and the fact that one of the greatest golfers of all time, Severiano Ballesteros, was born in Cantabria has contributed to the popularity of this sport and the proliferation of courses located in outstanding natural landscapes.
