Costa Verde : Michelin's recommendations
The Costa Verde owes its name to the colour of the ocean, its verdant mountains and the wooded pastures inland. Many of the towns and villages, such as Luarca and Cudillero, tucked away in picturesque coves, are now latching onto tourism. You will have the best view of it from the Cabo de Peñas headland, the northernmost tip of the Asturias, and especially the Cabo Vidio further to the west. For a combined view of the sea and the Picos de Europa, you should stop at the Mirador del Fito (further east).
