The Asturian coast of the ‘Costa Cantabrica’ is one of Spain’s best kept secrets.  While the rest of Spain is being baked in the sweltering summer heat, this north Atlantic coastline known as the ‘Costa Verde’ has the perfect climate for an active family holiday. Think Great British summers with water warm enough to have a good swim in, pristine fine sand beaches, deserted coves, cliffs and rock pools full of interesting sea creatures for the kids to explore, backed by Europe’s only true maritime mountain range, the majestic Picos de Europa.
This spectacular coastline is broken up by pretty, traditional fishing villages and towns where folk still look towards the crashing Atlantic for their living. The bustling bars serve up an exciting array of the daily catch with lashings of Asturian culinary tradition, swilled down with local dry cider (or plonk if you prefer). Remember the Spanish do everything with their children, and so they'll be welcome in bars and restaurants making for a social and enjoyable trip for all.
There's also a chance for the family to take a surf lesson with a professional instructor in the Atlantic breakers. And for those with tired afternoon legs, the FEVE tourist railway links all the villages along the coast, letting you and the kids rest for the next day without missing out on the beautiful views of the countryside. This fantastic trip will give you a true flavour of this proud Spanish region.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

The ride is aimed at the active family that do a bit of cycling and like to explore, taking you on an undulating route through some of Europe’s most stunning coastal scenery. At times the roads will be a little busier as you head into urban areas, so children must be comfortable with this. There are lots of other activities and places of interest to keep the children interested. For the surfing lesson you will be under the guidance of qualified instructors but everyone taking part needs to be a confident swimmer. There is a local train service (the FEVE railway) running along the coast, stopping at most villages; with a little planning, this is an easy option if you would like to shorten any days or hang out at the beach in the afternoon – a great option to have with children.
