Beautiful towns in Spain where you can disconnect, where you can get lost walking through its streets and its natural surroundings, where you can enjoy delicious cuisine and relax sunbathing on its beaches, while listening to the sea breeze. All of this can be enjoyed in these 15 charming coastal towns.
The best way to discover Garachico is by walking up to its castle, its convents and historical places, its churches or walking through its cobbled streets. A place that is located about 25 kilometers from Puerto de la Cruz and that is known for having been the main commercial port of Tenerife thanks to the exchange of wine and sugar, but in 1706 the eruption of the Arenas Negras or Trevejo volcano buried a large part of this town and its port, being unusable at that time and seriously affecting its economy. In it you can visit some essential places such as its historic center, the hermitage of San Roque, the Plaza de la Libertad, the Puerta de Tierra, the Castillo de San Miguel or the famous natural pools of El Caletón.
One of the most beautiful coastal towns in the Rías Baixas and also one of the most famous for the typical image of its granaries next to the sea, this is Combarro. A coastal town with no less than 60 granaries, as well as typical granite houses, wooden balconies and pretty cobbled streets. All this defines this picturesque fishing village located very close to the city of Pontevedra.
This second coastal town is also located in the north of Spain and one of its best-known images is characterized mainly by that explosion of colors achieved by its traditional houses arranged as an amphitheater, in contrast to the green vegetation and located in front of the sea. This town is located on the western Asturian coast and the image of that famous ‘amphitheater’ so unique, you can admire it from the beautiful Plaza de la Marina.
Sandwiched between sea and mountains, this is how you discover this town belonging to the council of Colunga, located on the eastern Asturian coast. One of the most beautiful fishing villages in Spain and recognized as an Exemplary Town of Asturias by the Princess of Asturias Foundation in 2010. A small and colorful fishing village full of steep streets and imposing houses and palaces overlooking the sea.
Located on the western coast of Cantabria and near Santander, that is where the town of Comillas is located. A place declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1985 and that stands out above all for its manor houses, its small squares full of charm, its cobbled streets, its beautiful buildings, its beach and without forgetting the Palace of Sobrellano, the Capricho de Gaudí or its Old Town. All of them must-see visits.
San Vicente de la Barquera
It is one of the best known towns on the Cantabrian coast and another of those fishing villages with a special charm. In this coastal town there is an interesting medieval layout that contrasts with its more modern part and close to the port, beautiful beaches and coves and a delicious seafood cuisine. But if what you want is to enjoy nature and hiking, then you should not miss the path of the cliffs of San Vicente de la Barquera.
It is undoubtedly one of the most attractive coastal towns in Malaga and, not only for its beautiful beaches, but also for its rich historical-cultural heritage, for its tasty cuisine or its proximity to the Sierra Nature Reserve Nevada and Sierra de Almijara. Do not miss the famous Caves of Nerja (with ancient cave paintings from 42,000 years ago) or the so-called Balcony of Europe.
