Spain Getaways: Cantabrian Sea Landscapes

Asturias is a region in the north of Spain bathed by the Cantabrian Sea. The Green Coast, as it is known, is full of surprises and places with spectacular landscapes and natural phenomena. The coastal road closely follows the coastline and offers breathtaking views from the top of the cliffs and pristine beaches.

Poo Beach

This funnel-shaped beach is surrounding by cliffs and lush greenery. At low tide, there is no sea in sight but at high tide a calm, emerald-colored water pool forms, making it an ideal place to sunbathe and go for a swim. Don’t let the name fool you! Poo Beach (pronounced Po) is one of the most sought after beaches in the north of Spain.

Sea Geysers

On the Cantabrian sea coast you can see one of the most curious phenomena of nature. It is the Bufones (blowholes) when the water of the sea enters forcefully through the cracks of the rocks. The erosion of the limestone rock generates small cracks, connected with the marine chasms, that reach the level of the sea. When the tide rises it causes the air or water accumulated in the cracks to be compressed and forced out.
