If you stay with us, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the best views of the Cantabrian Sea.
Starting from the beach of Aguilar, which gives its name to our hotel and as you know is a stone’s throw from our facilities, the path joins us with the viewpoint of the Ermita del Espíritu Santo, in San Esteban de Pravia. Cheer up, it’s only 5 km of light walking.
The coastal path is very well maintained, clean, with fountains and plenty of shade. All along the route there are several fountains, rest areas, rain shelters, you can go down to a multitude of coves (at the cost of negotiating steep slopes down and then up), as well as privileged observation points to contemplate the beautiful views of the Cantabrian coast, especially in the morning.
The route begins on the beach of Veneiro or Xilo (next to that of Aguilar), in Muros de Nalón, where there is a large car park and a viewpoint overlooking the beach of the same name. From here the path starts, all of it made of irregular stone, which runs along the coast of Muros to the village of San Esteban de Pravia. The route is uphill at the start and continues with a flight of steps up to the narrow entrance that leads to the Castro del Campón. Leaving this behind, the path continues, with hardly any gradient, until it reaches the first Rest Area next to Las Llanas, where a few metres away is the Mirador de los Glayos viewpoint. Continuing on, cross a small wooden bridge and follow the path, surrounded by eucalyptus and chestnut trees, until you reach the Mirador de la Atalaya viewpoint. Shortly after, the Ermita del Espíritu Santo, which gives its name to the last viewpoint on the route. From here you descend, via stairs, to San Esteban de Pravia, the end of the route.
And on the way back, you can rest in our large garden and treat yourself. The Hotel Playa de Aguilar awaits you with open arms.
