A very narrow side street in the tiny village became even more narrow with a build up of cars in the bushlands and cliffs over this beautiful drop into the sea. Good luck if you want to get down there! Stunning but impossible!

If you like solitary beaches, then this is a must visit place. To access the beach you will have to do small trek down, but it is worth it.

This is a lovely beach and a great place to spend a few hours. It's usually more or less deserted. It is a pebble beach though which makes it harder to walk on. I don't think it's the nicest of the beaches on Northern spain, but it was rainy when I went.

Rugged and beautiful coastline. Difficult to find and a bit of a hair raising drive. Park on the top of the cliff along a narrow road (don't worry, you won't need to turn the car, there is an exit road). Walk down to the beach, including the last bit which involves some steep steps. Stoney beach with beautiful views. Watch... More

Challenging to find as its off the beaten track, but beautiful. You park high on the cliffs and walk down the path to the beach. The last steep section is steps, but with a handrail. The views from the top are spectacular. The beach itself has no amenities, and is a mostly pebbly beach, but the seclusion makes up for... More

We enjoyed this coast which is rocky with cliffs but has small, secluded sandy beaches too and is natural and unspoilt.

This shingle beach is about 15 mins walk from the village and is not accessible by car. There are some breathtaking views around and lovely walk to reach this beach. Access is via man-made staircase which is narrow and very steep, so not recommended for people with walking difficulty. Lovely place to chill out and listen to the waves breaking... More

We visited Playa del Silencio in November and had the beach all to ourselves. We were able to park just at the top of the stairs so that it was only a 5 minute walk down to the beach and the views were simply stunning. Bit too chilly for swimming, the water was murky and the waves were about a... More

Driving in Spain, in areas less traveled with little signage, can be a challenge for someone from New England, but once at the secluded Playa del Silencio I was awed. There is no official parking lot, so one parks high up on the cliffs. The walk to/from the beach is very steep. Once there, however, you will feel the trek... More

We were told to visit this beach when we were in Oviedo. It was a bit difficult to find, but once we got there we realized that it was worth the trip! The only inconvenience is that you have to park away from the beach (about a 10-15 min, walk) and then you have to carefully go down steps to... More
