A moderately difficult trail between the boroughs of Llanes and Ribadesella

Summary San Antolín - Toriello

The trail begins at San Antolín Beach, heading west after passing under the FEVE railway line via an underpass. You will soon come to a turning on the right which leads to Gulpiyuri Beach, a listed Natural Monument. It is an inland beach located in the middle of meadowland, formed by the passage of the sea below the cliffs. The trail continues past the Chapel of Santolaya on the right and, soon after, reaches La Güelga Beach.

It then continues on to the bridge crossing the River Llagaras, where there is an old mill. The route proceeds through the village of Hontoria to then head up the road to Los Collaos, skirting Ovio and Picones. From there, the Chapel of San Antonio can be seen overlooking Cuevas Beach. The trail then heads downhill to Cuevas del Mar Beach, where you can choose to continue along the Pria Blowholes Route, which runs along the cliffside to Llames de Pria, or pass through the cave beside the access road to the beach from Nueva de Llanes. The trail crosses the River Nueva to then head uphill towards Villanueva until reaching an abandoned farmhouse, where you turn right to reach the narrow beach of Villanueva. Continue on from there to Villanueva. Shortly after you will pass by a small artificial pond with a fountain before coming to Garaña Chapel, just below a recreational area. The trail passes through Garaña to then reach Llames de Pria, where you take a path on the right that leads to the blowholes. A short distance further on, you leave this path to take another on the left leading downhill towards the River Guadamía, at the entrance to the beach of the same name.

Continue on from there, crossing the river and climbing a path to Castro de Arenes where the trail joins up with the PR AS-276 Ribadesella Orienteering Route, which follows the fishermen's path to the village of Toriello, where this stretch of the route ends.
