Playa Barayo is an attractive band of sand along the Cantabrian Sea/Bay of Biscay coast of northern Spain. Slanted cliffs with contorted caves bracket the beach and a wild-flower filled meadow backs it. Not all of the beach is clothing-optional, just the end to the right as you approach. There you’ll find a cave system a boulders clutching the surf.
Services & Facilities
There are no public services at are near the beach. In fact, the beach is located within the confines of a nature park and you will have to make an easy 10-15 minute hike from the parking lot to reach the water. The last part of this is a slightly steep incline of about 100 meters down to the beach.
Playa Barayo sits just east of the small village of Las Barqueras in the Asturias region of Spain. The nearest cities are Oviedo — the provincial capital — Aviles and the port city of Gijon. You will need your own transportation to get there. As it sits near the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail, it is possible to arrive on foot. But there is no public transportation nearby.
