Conejera cove in Villaviciosa, Asturias

Conejera beach, Villaviciosa, Asturias

1 December, 2014

Actually Conejera is not a beach it’s a cove. It’s a shell-shaped pebbly cove located to the east of the Rodiles headland (after going past the sewage works and the car park) and surrounded by sheer cliffs.

It’s not a popular cove and is used almost entirely by fishermen, mainly because of the difficult access and the lack of amenities. It has very little sand, being mostly covered in boulders and rocks.

There is no parking just for this one, but cars can be left at the car park at the Rodiles beach from where the cove can be reached on foot.

So why am I telling you about this cove? Well, it’s a good fishing spot and a good place to hide in the summer when Rodiles is crowded with people.

Even though each year it suffers small landslides the fishermen always create a new trail so if you’re careful enough you can enjoy it at low tide and most of the time be all alone there.

I’m afraid it disappears with high tide.
