Day Trips around Pechon - Cantabria, including Llanes, El Soplao, Santillana del Mar and more

During our stay in Pechon we did some fun day trips, seeing some of the coastal towns, visiting a beautiful cave and eating some great food. Day 1 - Lastres, Llanes and Pechon This was our first day driving around Cantabria with a first stop in Lastres. When doing this you will pass Llanes, but we figured that we drive west first and then double back via Llanes to Pechon. Duration: Casual day (10:00 - 18:00)  Short drives (less then 1 hour) between places What to bring: Towel and beach gear, because the two towns have nice beaches Water / drinks Food if you want to picnic on the beach / park / Paseo Comfy shoes to walk the cobblestones A sweater since you are at the beach and it might be foggy and windy, even in late June if you are early or stay later Umbrella (just in case) Who can come: Kids will love the beaches Adults the towns and food Walking is mostly easy with a few steps and lots of cobble stones Traffic is astonishing light on the A8, and
