In this stage we leave Ribadesella to continue walking along the Cantabrian coast, discovering at every step natural corners of great value until the end of the stage, where our journey ends in Colunga, region of the Asturian cider region par excellence.


Today we say goodbye to Ribadesella, leaving the town from its beautiful old town and head west, looking for the bridge to cross the estuary towards Colunga. We pass the beach of Santa Marina and continue to San Pedro de Leces. From here, we will advance with a slight upward slope and cross a lush valley, which will lead us to climb a hill and then descend to Vega de Ribadesella.

From the village, we will descend to the beach of La Vega and then we will continue between paths and stretches of the N-632, having the latter always as a reference of the route to follow. In this way we will arrive to Berbes, from where we will continue advancing with the reference of the road, along parallel paths and tracks. We will cross the Arenal de Morís beach, before arriving at La Espasa.

From La Espasa we only have a little more than 5 kilometres to go. Here we will have to decide whether to continue straight on towards Colunga, or to make a small detour towards the coast, passing through the town of La Isla.

To consider

Just as we recommend you enjoy the gastronomy of Ribadesella, Colunga is known as the region of cider, so you cannot leave without visiting a cider cellar.
