Can you imagine a fishing village where at Christmas time, instead of Father Christmas arrives, the Angulero arrives? Well, that is how unique L'Arena is, a paradise for the best elver in the world, the one found in the Nalón estuary.
L'Arena is proud of its great seafaring and canning tradition, as reflected in its popular procession on 24th June and throughout the year in the "Puerta del Mar" Interpretation Centre of the Nalón estuary, where you can learn about the trades linked to the sea and the estuary, as well as everything related to the biological cycle of the glass eel. It is also the centre of the gastronomic festival during the first weekend in March, declared to be of Regional Tourist Interest.
This fishing village, in the council of Soto del Barco, is surprisingly beautiful and peaceful, so you will find it very easy to relax as you watch the tide come in from its port or the sunset over the estuary. Strolling along its maritime façade evokes the past, which was so well reflected by the poet Rubén Darío and the painter Joaquín Sorolla.
L'Arena, with a riverside promenade that delights the most demanding visitors; with a fishing port and a marina; with the impressive beach of Los Quebrantos; with its little fishermen's and Indiano houses; with its restaurants serving 100% Cantabrian cuisine; with its lively streets and parks... it is without doubt one of the jewels of the central Asturian coast.
Under the serene influence of the Nalón estuary, in L'Arena you can contemplate sweet sunsets or sunrises, and if you are looking for panoramic views of the entire western coast, you can go to the viewpoint at Pozaco point, and from there you can see from the island of Deva to Cape Vidio.
In L'Arena, sea and estuary bathing, surfing days, elver evenings, sailing and fishing days, quiet walks and good food await you. A real Cantabrian luxury.
