The Camino de Santiago between Arenal de Morris and La Isla
The classic Camino de Santiago waymark
There are probably 8 different Caminos de Santiago starting from different places but all finishing in Santiago de Compostella. The coastal version or Camino del Norte dates back to the 8th century and starts in Irun on the French Spanish border, goes all the way along the provence of Asturias and runs fairly close to the coast for much of the way.
Sandy and pebbly beaches on route
In Asturias there are 275 kms of the path, but the section we particularly like because the path runs next to the sea most the way is from Playa Arenal de Morris to Huerres. You pass through the small resort of La Isla, but the rest of the walk is along very unspoilt rolling hills and farm land.
Rolling hills and dramatic beaches
We include this section in our self guided walking notes and the start of the walk is about 25 mins by car from the hotel. We certainly enjoy this walk and hope you will too.
