The typical shell-shaped beach of Cadavedo is also known as La Ribeirona, so don’t be surprised if you will see both names on the maps from the tourism offices of Asturias. Its name is due to the fact that it is located in the village of Cadavedo but the funny thing is that this beautiful village has more than one beach (but that’s our secret, there are more hidden beaches in Cadavedo, for example: Churín, Fontanecha and Campiecho – our app AsturPlaya can take you to all of them, download it now!).
Some extra info about Cadavedo
Cadavedo is a 440 meters long, 45 meters wide sandy beach of pebbles and boulders. It’s a bit windy and has pretty big waves which makes it suitable for surfing but not so for children.
It is one of the few beaches of Valdés with lots of amenities: showers (for feet, at least), toilets, a beach bar, parking (pretty big), toilets, lifeguard and even a picnic area with benches and an awesome view!
Its accessibility makes it very popular during the summer but it is also popular due to its location and the fact that it has a mix of sand and pebbles – a rare sight in Valdés.

La Regalina hermitage
While you’re here, take a few hours off and visit the hermitage on the hill, called La Regalina.
You’ll enjoy spectacular views over the beach of Cadavedo and the El Ribón beach (I couldn’t get to this one although I know where it is – is just that we could not find the entry point to the footpath that takes there…) and you’ll see the coastline in all its splendor.
Also it’s a very good spot for the entire family, you can let the kids play around while you enjoy the view and… the silence! If you happen to be nearby in August you should know that it attracts a lot of people on the last August Sunday when locals celebrate a FIESTA!!!
Around the hermit you will see the coastline of Valdés…
… some Hórreos – typical wooden constructions used for storing food…
… and some more beaches…
