I didn't think it was worth the journey

We had been given a list of places to see in the day by our hotel, and this was one of them. The road down is steep and narrow, with very few places to park. The track is one way... read more

We had been given a list of places to see in the day by our hotel, and this was one of them. The road down is steep and narrow, with very few places to park. The track is one way - which is not clear at the start, only when you try to go back you see the "no entry"... More

It is a bit of a drive to get there and a walk down to the beach but it is well worth it, with towering cliffs and a stoner isolated beach being your reward. There were people sun baking, but it is more of a place to explore, for the kids to throw stones into the surf and for others... More

Very picturesque view of the bay after the long windy road down but as the tide was in and only a few rocks were left above the shore line we did not stay . Would return another time as looked a lovely little bay.

quiet, great swimming and good hiking trails close by. Better with a car due to hazards on the road.

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
