We read about this spot on TA and spent an hour there on our way to our hotel in Cudillero. The coastal scenic views are absolutely spectacular. Well worth the short detour off the motorway. You follow a one way road and park once you see the no entry sign on the down track. The road then continues back up to the village again. It’s not a long walk down to the lookout or the beach.

We happened to take the Cantábrico highway to Asturias from Madrid and this stop was in our way. We decided to go down with the car from the highway to this beach and it was stunning. Quiet place, it was windy and rather late so it was almost empty. We took some stunning photos at dusk because the sun at that time is setting over the ocean. Beautiful.

Rocky beach that requires a bit of steep hiking up and down. But it's totally worth it. We didn't pay for parking, there was no indication for payment. The sea was very wavy that day but it was still swimmable. Enjoyed a lot. If you go in September (or out of season) it feels like you reserve the whole beach for yourself. You won't be able to stop taking pics...

Playa del Silencio offers some very beautifull views of the rough coast line of Asturias. On top of the cliffs there is a paid parking run by locals (€2). You can take the car further down, but it will be increasingly hard to park the car and you can't take your car all the way to the beach.

You can decent to the beach by stairs. Seeing some of the older reviews, these were not there before. Its fairly easy to decent and climb on the end of the day unless it's hard for you to walk.

The beach itself is beautiful, but rocky. Be sure to take watershoes, you'll need them. We did some snorkling as well, but because of the current the water was not very clear. So it's not the best place for snorkling.

It's still worth a visit, simply because it's beautiful over there, but maybe not as silent as the name suggests.

We had the misfortune of arriving when it was quite cloudy and leaving as the sun came out, meaning we made the steep walk back up to the car park in the blazing heat.

The view from the beach (and from higher up) is lovely, although this is a rocky beach that isn't particularly comfortable to walk/sit on.
