Vega / Berbes

Sometimes known as Berbes, the western half of Vega beach is a long stretch of sand in a rural environment, surrounded only by green pastures and cliffs with dinosaur footprints.

How to get there

There are two main ways to this beach. The easiest one is to follow the motorway A-8 and take the exit towards Ribadesella and Vega. Then, follow to road to this village, cross it and continue until you reach the beach. This way leads you to the central section, which is textile.

There is a better way to the nudist section. In the motorway, take the exit to Berbes and follow the road N-632. Continue after you pass Berbes, and only 500m after there is an unpaved road to the left. Follow it and turn left downhill and then right into an even narrower road. At the end you will find a place to park your car. The last 100m have to be done on foot.

The beach

More than 2km long, it can be divided in three areas. To the right, there is a small cove at the foot of the cliff where you can find dinosaurs footprints, a remain of the marsh that cover Asturias in the Jurassic.
The central part is much wider. The parking area is here. With fine sand, convenient facilities and easy access, this beach is quite popular and most people concentrate in this section, so it can be overcrowded on weekends. The dunes here are protected and classified as a Natural Monument due to the particular vegetation.
The third part is very narrow and extends for a kilometer until the cliffs that close the beach to the left. In this section you can find several rocks, specially at the end. The width depends largely on the tide, which may even cut the access from the central section.


Facilities

There is a restaurant close to the parking area in the central section. You can find always lifeguards in this area, but they patrol all the beach regularly. 

Nudism

I have heard of nudists using the right end, but have never seen anybody naked there. Nudists commonly use the western half of the beach, the section that starts behind the a huge boulder. Only the upper part, close to the meadows, emerges at high tide, so most people sunbathe there. The rocks can be used to get some privacy, but you have to be aware of the continuous stream of people walking along the shore, most of them wearing a swimsuit. Nobody will say a word if you go nude for a dip or decide to play with your dog in the buff, but this is definitely not your beach if you are looking for a nudists-only place.

I like:
  • The long walks alog the shore, even if you need a swimsuit
I don't like:
  • Dangerous currents in the water

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
