A view of the fishing town of Ribadesella

General

  • Coastal site a 600-metre stroll from the beach
  • A 15-minute walk to the old fishing town of Ribadesella
  • Café restaurant, shop, TV room, playground and wifi area

Might this be one of the most handsome Spanish towns you'll ever clap eyes upon? Quite possibly. Part of Spain's fab northern coast, the historic fishing town of Ribadesella is a place of two halves, broken up by the mouth of the Sella river – and edged by the golden sandy beach of Playa Santa Marina.

A 600-metre stroll from the sands and a 15-minute walk from town lies friendly and family-friendly Camping Playa Sauces, a topping spot to settle down in for some Asturias sea and sand, or to rest your weary feet for a night or two if you're hiking the Camino de Santiago. Surfing and river kayaking are easy to access from here, and the spectacular Picos de Europa mountain range edges Ribadesella for day trips having some intrepid hiking.

Playa Sauces is also about a kilometre and a half from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cueva de Tito Bustillo, famed throughout Spain – and beyond – as the setting for some splendid prehistoric cave art in a place inhabited by humans for tens of thousands of years. (Go: these are a must.)

Site facilities include a small café restaurant serving up local dishes; a food shop; a playground, a TV room and a wifi area. The amenities block is heated.

Please note

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

  • Electric optional grass motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Nice and clean site and decent size pitches.
    Very busy with scouts in big groups, sometimes noisy.

    Disliked: 

    Not much choice in the restaurant. No supermarket, but small area with a few things for sale.
    I thought it was a 20 minute walk to the town of Ribadesella, ok if you have a bike, if not 20 minutes will get you to the beach. It would be at least double or more to walk to Ribadesella. No info in campsite to suggest a bus or even cab.
    Ok for one night. Or if you have a car or bike, we just had our motorhome, so not much to do.

    Tidy site, great showers, friendly staff, 1/2 mile easy walk to beach and another 1/2 mile along sea wall to lovely fishing village. Great location to tour Picos de Europa but road not good for motor homes due to overhangs.

  • Liked: 

    Proximity to jewel of a town and beach. It was only 2-3 mins to the end of the lovely crescent beach on our bikes. Charming town too.

    Disliked: 

    Initial impression - site surrounded by tall housing which concerned everyone we met, on arrival. The grass site is dated & bit rough round the edges, although toilet facilities clean & reception laid back. No hot water at the dish washing facilities.

    The town was picturesque
    Location good
    Supermarket within walking distance

    Disliked: 

    There had been heavy rain for two days and paths around campsite were precarious. Pitches were sodden (not fault of campsite)
    WiFi available only in bar area
    Tired campsite in need of investment
    Only cold water to wash dishes - you had to obtain hot water from children’s washroom but if that was being used you had to use a shower!
    Lots of unaccompanied teenagers on the first night of our stay - we only stuck it one night, despite paying for five and moved on
    Not for us

Local attractions

Quite a few travel types have labelled Ribadesella, its Asturias area and this part of northern coast as among Spain's best-kept secrets, so perhaps don't wax too lyrical about its spectacular sights once you're back from hol…

As well as the golden beach 600 metres away and splendid Ribadesella within 15 minutes' walk, guests at Camping Playa Sauces are within easy reach of outdoor activities like hiking the Picos de Europa, cycling, surfing and sailing from Santa Marina, or taking a kayak out on the Sella. (If you're around in early August, the International Descent of the River Sella/ Descenso Internacional del Sella is a Most Important date on the Spanish canoeing calendar.)

The Cueva de Tito Bustillo a mile from base is a must-see for its prehistoric wall art dating back 40,000 years; further afield are the cities of Gijon (60 kilometres) and Oviedo (80 kilometres).
