The cliffs of Pimiango hiding El Regolgueru cove

El Regolgueru beach, Ribadedeva, Asturias

1 December, 2014

This is not a beach, it’s actually a really well hidden cove that disappears with high tide. It might not interest you if you are looking for a place to put your towel and just be lazy but in case you like to discover secluded corners and have the entire cove just for you, El Regolgueru might be the place to go to.

We did not include this beach in our app AsturPlaya and I am not sure we will ever do, but in case you downloaded it you should know that this cove is near the Mendía cove and is the most Eastern cove in Ribadedeva and Asturias.

You can get here from the parking of a viewpoint called Mirador del Picu right outside the village of Pimiango (you can see it in the top gallery).

Leave your car there, have a picnic and then start climbing down the Pimiango cliffs. The footpath is visible and at first there are stairs helping you to climb down.

You will walk parallel to a spring that flows into the sea right where the cove is – shortly the footpath becomes narrower and with no more stairs.

Even so, it’s not a difficult walk, don’t worry.

After 20 minutes or so you will reach the cove and depending on the tide you might or might not see anything cause Regolgueru disappears entirely with high tide.

We got there late afternoon on an autumn day and the cove was well in the shadow (pardon me the bad pictures). This is what we saw:

We had to climb the cliffs to take the left picture and I am sorry it’s not showing the entire rock – it’s quite spectacular and it’s called Arco del Caballo (The horse’s arch). Maybe the tide was not on our side, I hope we’ll be able to see the horse better next time 🙂
