Spectacular coastal setting, backed by mountains
Spectacular, breathtaking, choose a superlative – La Paz’s setting in unspoiled Asturias, on a promontory on a sandy beach, with views to the mountains behind and over the ocean in front, is exceptional. Many pitches have probably the most breathtaking views of any we feature – with the coastal mountain range that fringes the famous Picos de Europa behind, and a superb beach below. This is Green Spain at its absolute best, with Asturias remaining one of the country's most unspoilt regions, and La Paz an ideal site for active and adventurous couples and families. There are spectacular terrace pitches (help available for siting), or larger units may prefer the shadier pitches at the bottom of the site, just near the access to the sandy beach and its rock pools. Good facilities and a warm welcome complete the package.

Super location 50 yards from the gorgeous beach - the sea is rough for swimming but ideal for surfers/boarders - & lifeguarded in Jul/Aug.
The facilities are good - The restaurant has the most stunning views, showering in a cave has to be experienced and the on site supermarket has a variety of provisions including fresh fruit and veg.
Expect to be rammed in at peak season - it can feel a bit claustrophobic - although from 20th August it gets much quieter. If you want a sea view pitch, specifiy this when you book - and if you are a caravan owner without a 4*4, the site will use a landrover to tow you up the hill.
A short drive to the amazing Picos de Europa mountains is essential including the beautiful gorge walks.
There are blowholes approximately 2 miles west of the site - make your way there coming up to a 'high' high tide for the most amazing experience (tide tables are displayed at the site).
Also the thermal spring in a river under the bridge to a hotel at La Hermida was wonderful (probably not in any guide book - the locals have just dammed up the spring outlet).
Access to the site is difficult. The road down to the site is narrow, steep and winding. At the bottom, wait for staff help which is usually quick to arrive.
Please note that if you drive a motorhome you may have difficulty servicing it due to poorly designed access - I tried with little success. Arrive with a full tank - there is a free service point a few miles east on the main road.
Finally - may be worth checking on whether there is a fiesta on - be prepared for LOUD music from midnight to 4am if there is! Fortunately this was only 2 consecutive nights for us...
I would definitely recommend the site - you have to go with the foibles!!
