    Have a look at the BF website, Guides, Ports. It says it opens several hours before departure.

    Do you still have the co-ordinates as we need somewhere to park overnight when we arrive in Santander?

    Thanks.

    They might let you park at the terminal, as the ferries are only a couple a week i think.

    I don't think you can park overnight on the dock at Santander although you can at Bilbao.
    Another vote here for the free aire at Cabarceno. Lovely place.

    I believe that you can park up on your departure day quite early, something like 9am or thereabouts. They give you a pass to get out of the gate .

    Finally got to my satnav here are the co-ordinates for the places I have used for overnighting in the past. I hasten to add I have not used them recently But they all seem ok on Google.
    I have stayed at them all and never had any problems whatsoever.

    Santander Car park for night stop, I checked this, still there on Google.
    43°29'0.6.o"N
    3°47'28.9"W

    And another one Playa de la Moroca car park,also still there
    43°28'48.0"N 3°59'06.0"W


    Somo car park (near beach) about half hour drive away (23km) Also still there according to Google. I like this place as it's handy for a vet and a short stroll into town for something to eat.
    43°27"18.9N
    3°44'33.0"W

    Comillas Car park (about 34 miles to Santander)

    Thank you very much.

    One thing about this forum is there is always "someone who knows".

    Life is much simpler as a result. Cheers!:clap:
