This is undoubtedly the most beautiful stage of the entire Northern Way by bike from Irún. Today it’s time to enjoy!
After leaving Colombres, you will take a beautiful coastal path, the most beautiful stretch of the stage. You will pass through spectacular scenery such as the beach of Vidiago, Bufones de Arenillas and the viewpoint of Ballota. From the viewpoint you can go down to Llanes by road or take the path along the golf course, a longer and harder option.
After the obligatory stop in Llanes for lunch, you will return to the coastal path passing by the beaches of Poo and Celorio, and the spectacular church of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores. You can visit the famous beach of Gulpiyuri, which only appears at high tide, the beach of Huelga, the paradisiacal beach of Cuevas de Mar and the hidden beach of Villanueva. It will be beaches! After a salty bath, you will pedal with a new joy until you reach Ribadesella, your end of the stage.
