Everyone knows San Pedro de la Ribera beach, even if sometimes they know it under the name of San Pedro de Bocamar. It’s one of the most popular beaches of Cudillero, with plenty of services to offer to tourists and locals.
San Pedro de la Ribera is a beach of fine, golden sand and boulders, surrounded by meadows where wooden benches and tables for picnic are placed.
The river Sequeiro flows here into the sea, carrying with it lots of pebbles that are spread on the Eastern side of the beach. A bit further away from the beach a beautifully crafted wooden bridge was built to help you cross it if you wish.
Finding San Pedro de la Ribera beach is easy, you can get here from the village of Soto de Luiña in Cudillero or from the village of Salamir following the CU-7 road – this alternative will allow you to view the beach from above and it’s a view that you should not miss in case you wish to come here by car (see the first image in the gallery above).
You can also leave the car well outside Soto de Luiña and walk to the beach or take a bike.
This is especially useful in the summer months when the numerous parkings are always full of cars and parking here becomes more of a nuisance. During summer weekends you probably will not find any parking spot, free of charge or paid.
Once here a wooden platform will lead you to the Western side of the beach. At the end of the platform this is what you will see: towards West Punta Gavita (the Gavita headland) and towards East almost 400 meters of beach ending with high cliffs.
You will walk by a camping, a bar, a restaurant, the toilets and the showers and a small picnic area. At the beach you will see plenty of showers and another small picnic area on the meadow surrounding the beach.
San Pedro de la Ribera benefits from lifeguard service during the summer months and is accessible for people with limited mobility.
The beach is a good spot for people who love to practice surf (I’ve seen children surfing here so I believe it’s quite safe) but also a good place for fishing.
