Ideal, Fantástico guia Ash, que nos explico todo lo que sabia de los lugares que visitabanos, pensaba que iva a llover y tubimos suerte de poder visitar la playa sin una gota de lluvia, con la marea baja, recomiendo ir con camara se hacen unas fotos fantasticas, en rinlo tubimos un tiempo para comer y nos recomendo un sitio muy bueno, cuanfo entras parece el tipico bar de pueblo... pero dentro tiene un monton de mesas en una estancia acogedora con aspecto muy tradicional, un acuario con marisco vivo, etc. Ya que estabmos en Asturias comimos tipico de alli, chorizo a la sidra, fabada, cachopo y unas croquetas de queso de perales con manzana, y como no, sidra, que la venden super barata y artesanal, como toda la comida en si... muy recomendable la excursion
