I've still got sand in my shoes

And I can't shake the thought of Ribadesella . . .

We visited Ribadesella on the Bay of Biscay with one goal in mind - my daughter had never touched the Atlantic Ocean, not on any of our prior trips to the East Coast, so this became her opportunity.

Ribadesella is a picturesque beach town that became prominent during the turn of the 20th century. Old mansions line the promenade. The beach itself is beautiful and clean.

Our time was limited here, so all I can offer is a single tip and a travelogue.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Clean beach, safe surf, good surfing, nice sand, beautiful old beach houses
  • Cons:We had a brief shower, but it passed quickly
  • In a nutshell:Colorful Asturian beach town, gorgeous beach
  • Last visit to Ribadesella: Jul 2007

    Great photos! I was only able to swing by Ribadesella by night but I would love to return. Didn't you love those great dramatic skies in Asturias?
