The Costa Verde east of Gijon

The Costa Verde east of Gijon

By car, 152 km, 1 day

The Costa Verde gets its name from the colour of the sea and its shores green with eucalyptus and pine trees. This coast, one of the most beautiful in Spain, has the Cantabrian mountains and the Picos de Europa as a backdrop. From Gijón onwards, the landscape is a series of cliffs, beaches and fishing villages. San Vicente de la Barquera, at the end of your journey, embodies the quintessential Cantabrian coast, with its beaches, old village and breathtaking view of the Picos de Europa with their snowy peaks.
