The Western Asturian Coast
Would you like to know the imprint the sea has left on Asturian culture and tradition? This is then your excursion! We are going to see fishing villages, unique beaches and infinite cliffs on the lesser-known Asturian coast. We will discover together the history of the sea and the men who inhabit it thanks to the select stops and walks that we have chosen for you. Shall we start?
We will approach (pedestrian access of approximately one hour of round trip duration), first, to the Natural Reserve of Barayo beach, which leaves no one indifferent, to walk on its sands and hear the roar of the Cantabrian Sea. Next, we will reach the picturesque town of Puerto de Vega and will experience its narrow streets and old fishermen’s houses, in addition to looking at its historic port. Later, we will arrive at Luarca, a fishing village where your guide will show you the footprint left by the fisheries and whale hunting. We will visit the Atalaya viewpoint and the well-known cemetery from where you will observe one of the best panoramic views over the town and the coast before walking towards its colorful port.
But the best part is we haven’t finished the tour yet! Before eating (food not included) we will enjoy one of the most beautiful and iconic corners of Asturias: La Regalina meadow, with its small hermitage and well-known granary, on the cliffs and beach of Cadavedo. To end this beautiful day together we will explore the unique Cudillero, a true amphitheater facing the sea, made of twisted streets and viewpoints that seem to lean one on each other. After a short walk between colorful houses and time for your last shoping, we will return to the hotel.
