We read about this spot on TA and spent an hour there on our way to our hotel in Cudillero. The coastal scenic views are absolutely spectacular. Well worth the short detour off the motorway. You follow a one way road and park once you...More

We happened to take the Cantábrico highway to Asturias from Madrid and this stop was in our way. We decided to go down with the car from the highway to this beach and it was stunning. Quiet place, it was windy and rather late so...More

Rocky beach that requires a bit of steep hiking up and down. But it's totally worth it. We didn't pay for parking, there was no indication for payment. The sea was very wavy that day but it was still swimmable. Enjoyed a lot. If you...More

Playa del Silencio offers some very beautifull views of the rough coast line of Asturias. On top of the cliffs there is a paid parking run by locals (€2). You can take the car further down, but it will be increasingly hard to park the...More

We had the misfortune of arriving when it was quite cloudy and leaving as the sun came out, meaning we made the steep walk back up to the car park in the blazing heat. The view from the beach (and from higher up) is lovely,...More

We found this 'by accident' whilst motorcycling along the coast road eastwards from Luarca. Descend down the signposted track on an anticlockwise one-way system and park at any of the car/bike zones. First admire the stunning views then continue on foot down the zig-zag cliff...More

The drive to the Playa del Silencio is lovely. When you arrive you can park your car and walk down to the beach. The rock formations are some of the most unique and beautiful colors I have ever seen.

The name is true, you feel peace there. Unfortunately didn't get the chance to go down to the beach but the view is spectacular, one of the best views I've seen.

My wife, her brothers, and I went here on a road trip through northern Spain. It was definitely worth the stop. The views from the trail leading to the beach were incredible, but keep in mind this attraction is probably better for the views than...More
