Cudillero Things to Do

  • Cudillero - Walk by the port.

    It is more than likely that you'll have to park by the port as parking is very limited near town, but it is a pleasant enough short walk.

  • Cudillero - Views from the top.

    For those that don't fancy the climb, it is possible to get to the same point with the car. Head out from the town and follow the signs for the cemetery. Park in front of the cemetery (don't forget the hand-brake) and walk down the paved slope to the belvedere. Don' worry if you don't have a head for heights as it's just like a field up there.

  • Cudillero - Climb up to the top.

    A quite exhausting climb takes you up through the narrow streets to the top of one of the hills that form the amphitheatre. On the way you'll see these strange fish hanging on sticks that have been emptied and left to dry.

  • The palaciego selgas estate

    Just 2 km from Cudillero, n El Pito, we found the Selgas Palace Estate. The palace is surrounded by luxorious gardens in style of Versailles. Probably that's wy the entrance was closed (limited entrance?...)

  • Take a tour of the coast

    The zone formed by villages that lie between the coast and the mountains is chatacterized y bucolic landscapes and rugged countryside with each village having a small chapel.Cabo Vidio is just 10km from Cudilero.

  • Panoramic view from lighthouse

    In the evening, Cudillero becomes a pleasant and entertaining stroll once the fishing boats return the sea from their labours. The lighthouse is yet another great attraction for the visitor with incredible panoramic views of the coastline.

  • Lighthouse

    This is Cudillero Lighthouse you could walk there and get a beautiful view.You see the Cantabrico sea in all its splendor :)

  • Cudillero Seaport

    As you could see in the picture Cudillero is a fisherman village, you wouldn't see spectacular boats, you only see fisherman boats and believe me they are more beautiful than the jet set boats :)

Cudillero Warnings and Dangers

  • christopaul's Profile Photo

    Book ahead in August.

    by christopaul Written Aug 18, 2005

    The second weekend in August is a bank holiday in Spain. All along the North coast of Asturias it is virtually imposible to turn up and get a room. We ended up sleeping in the car on the Sunday night. By monday the Spaniards were off home again and things returned to normal.

    This could easily be Cornwall or west Wales.

Cudillero Tourist Traps

  • pfsmalo's Profile Photo

    Cudillero - Overpriced restaurants.

    by pfsmalo Written Nov 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The tourist trap in Cudillero is all around you on the main square. All the restaurants seem to have agreed on a price for their menu - 60euros!!!! At lunchtime every restaurant has the same price, and it seems the same hustlers to get you to eat at their place. It may be good but seems very exagerated.

    Unique Suggestions: Refuse to pay this type of price and walk a couple of hundred metres up the hill past the church and town hall. There are some local restaurants there that will only charge you 25/30euros for 2 !!! It's possibly not as good but at least there's an atmosphere and local colour.

    The jaws of the trap are open ......

Cudillero Off The Beaten Path

  • Playa del Silencio (Beach of the...

    Visit (or better yet, stay in) Cudillero/Cuideiru. It's a large fishing village that is very scenic. There are some very fine seafood restaurants here, places to stay, and best of all, the beach 'Playa de Silencio' (Beach of Silence), located nearby. The beach is secluded and requires a long hike to get to. There are few if any people on the beach....

  • Palace

    If you go through the old road you get to this wonderful palace. It was closed to public but nowadays it is open. You must make a reservation to see it inside.

  • Playa del Silencio

    View of the beach from a distance. Notice the beach itself (far right center) is rather small, and of course, secluded. It requires a considerable hike to reach down a stepped cliff.
