The North coast of Spain can be quite dramatic with rocky cliffs, hidden coves and long sandy beaches. Just half an hour away by car from the house are the lovely beaches of Niembro and Torimbia. Niembro has easy parking nearby and a small cafe in high season. Torimbia, a naturist beach, is reached by climbing down a windy track and tends to be quieter. This is not the costa del sol and everything is very low key. In June and September when the weather is still warm you could find you are are the only person on the beach.
