Some of the best beaches of Ribadesella are just 2.5 kilometers from La Piconera Hotel & Spa. For example, Santa Marina beach and its perfectly conditioned promenade, 1.5 km of urban sand beach with the shape of a shell, which delights swimmers, surfers, runners, or anyone who enjoys a pleasant walk between the Cantabrian Sea and the nearby mountains. The Indian-style palaces tell us about the aristocratic and bourgeois past of the villa, linked to the spa phenomenon of the early twentieth century. It is worth noting the presence of some dinosaur footprints on the cliffs of the beach, which is also part of the Camino de Santiago.
Also noteworthy is the Atalaya small bay, full of charm, formed by sand and boulders. Nearby, 5 kilometers away, we have Vega beach, a little crowded, with 2 km. length and a landscape characterized by the dunes and the cliffs that surround it. In the surroundings of Ribadesella you can contemplate the natural phenomenon of jesters, and erosive karst model of the sea towards the land, where the sea forms suppliers of more than 30 meters high.
