Costa verde, Asturias y Cantabria.

Asturias has a fantastic coastline with extensive stretches of pristine golden sand beaches plunging into the deep blue Atlantic ocean, and Llanes is probably one of the most popular destinations for summer holidays in Asturias. In between the beaches the coastline is dotted with charming authentic fishing villages clinging to the cliffs. With over 200 beaches to choose from, deciding which to spend time on can be a real challenge.

Cantabria faces the ocean from the high, broken coastal plains to the foothills of the mountains. Where the rock is softer, the sea has broken through and caused the collapse of enormous cliffs, forming promontories and islands. Wherever the rock formation and the action of the waves has combined with the effect of the turbulent river waters, nature has built deep inlets and estuaries banked by wetlands.
The presence of nature is so strong along these coasts that, even in areas where man and his excesses are concentrated, the beauty of the landscape is still enough to overpower the senses, as at Castro Urdiales, Laredo, Santoña, Noja, the bay of Santander, Suances, Comillas or San Vicente de la Barquera
