Difficulty: Moderate (but I found the Candás to Luanco portion to be easy)
Length: about 12 KM
Time: about 6 hours

Important: some parts of the route are not marked very well, so follow the map on Wikiloc. At some point we had to cross through a field with cows and stepped on a huge pile of poop but it was worth it 🙂

The route starts in the village of Candás, it’s a beautiful place with a cute center. You can have a walk there and then head to the coast and start the route.

The route is amazing and passes through fields, a few unique beaches, and at times through other very very small villages!

The route ends in Luanco where you can have lunch or eat ice cream at one of the best ice cream places in Asturias, Helados Helio Hermanos (they have another location in Candás if you prefer to save the ice cream to the end). Don’t forget to walk around the center of this town as well!
