La CagoneraGijón, Asturias

Cagonera beach in Gijón, Asturias, Spain - panoramic view

Caginera beach comes with more than one story to tell. First of all La Cagonera is no longer accessible by foot, a major landslide closed the only footpath that was built to reach it – and when I say major, I mean the biggest I have seen so far. I never saw Cagonera before the […]
