This picturesque seaside town’s seafront is lined with cafés, seafood restaurants and quaint shops. It’s perfect for a peaceful escape or a romantic retreat. The beautiful coves and cliffs that span the coastline are ideal for walkers and families wanting to explore the area on foot. This unspoilt area also boasts impressive buildings in various stages of restoration or decay, including the Torre Medieval and the Renaissance palaces of the Duques de Estrada and the Casa del Cercau. And because Llanes is still an active fishing port, seafood lovers will be delighted by the abundance of freshly caught fish and shellfish on offer.
From cosy cottages to stylish apartments, you’ll have plenty of rentals to choose from when you book a break in Llanes.
Bufones de Pria is more of a natural wonder than your average beach. Visit at high tide and you’ll be treated to a magnificent display as water jets shoot up through underground channels. The noise as the waves and jets hit the cliffs is quite something! For a family-friendly beach with plenty of room to run around, head to Playa de Poo. Here, you can have a go a surfing or kayaking and there are some brilliant bars and places to eat nearby, too. For pure, unadulterated beauty, spend the day lazing on Playa de Torimbia. This secluded beach surrounded by green hills has soft, golden sand and safe bathing. Sit and enjoy a drink or take a dip in the sea; this blissful beach is a must when visiting Llanes.
To find out more about Llanes’ nautical history, browse the displays at the Maritime Exhibition Centre. Through slides, scenarios, objects and photographs, the museum explains the relationship between the people of Llanes and the sea. Another cultural gem is the Arts and Crafts Centre in Poo de Llanes. See how centuries old local crafts, such as pottery and woodwork, have been preserved and developed over time. Llanes has over 300 metres of pre-Romanesque wall from the 13th century to explore and the Castle Tower, which is now the site of the Tourist Office, well worth a visit.
