Where the roar of the Cantabrian sea becomes a lullaby, where the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks soothes you into silence. Time seems to stand still. The Playa del Silencio, with its cliffs and islands, is still relatively unknown, and it’s likely you won’t find too many people around (unlike with the extremely touristy Praia das Catedrais). You may find a few sea gulls, though. Perhaps even a nudist! (Be warned: This happened to us.)
To get to Playa del Silencio, you go to the village of Castañeras, a small town in the municipality of Cudillero. There are lots of signs point out the way. You leave your car at the top of the cliff and walk down, first on a path and later down some steps.
