Taking off from Asturias, panoramic of the coast from the plane

The coast of Asturias, molded wave by wave by a usually raging Cantabrian Sea, is a succession of cliffs and beaches, to each more steep to each more virgin.

At western Asturias, we have talked about - and discovered with you - beaches such as Barayo or Porcía and towns such as Viavelez, Puerto de Vega and Ortiguera in the Navia council, and we did it by stepping on its streets or its sand.

Without neglecting some privileged points of the coast, like those or the surroundings of Cabo Peñas and its lonely lighthouse, it is from the air that it is best seen that the green of Asturias is only stopped by the bites of the blue sea.

Who decides to travel to Asturias by plane has, if the fog allows, the opportunity to access a unique point of view of all the above. When you take off from the airport of Asturias, the end of the runway is just 500 meters from the kilometerly beach of Bayas and the Cantabrian Sea. The maneuvers of the device to turn and embocar the route to Barcelona or Madrid, the most common, allow passengers to glimpse for a few seconds kilometers of the steep coast profile Asturian

However, he was making the reverse journey, aboard a Vueling that came from Barcelona, ​​when I had the opportunity to record the video that I have shown you. It's about a parallel path to the coast during almost 30 kilometers of cliffs and beaches of Asturias, before the turn to land at the airport.

Although the horizon was a layer of clouds, the sun was not behind me and is a recording with mobile, it is quite well appreciated that on the way (maybe just 1/8 of the coast of Asturias) we can contemplate one of the main Attractions for the visitor, Nature. From the Cantabrian that licks its coast, the green that starts in meadows very close to the sea and extends into mountains that peek into the distance, the best claim of Asturias is to be a "Natural paradise".
