Cabo Vidio, Asturias, Spain. The rugged surface and precipitous cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean are located in the northern part of the country. A dramatic coast provides some of the most exciting views. Although the place looks quite inhospitable, there are a few viewpoints that give a good impression to this glorious natural wonder.
The cliffs reach 80 m (262 ft) above sea level and allow to see Punta de Estaca de Bares – the northernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula – as well as Cabo de Peñas. Other popular features include a lighthouse on a cape and a cave below – a result of erosion, caused by the waves. Overall this is a popular site to visit while traveling in Asturias.
Why to go there?
Amazing views to the vast coastline open from here: one can admire the ascending and descending cliffs, mountains and horns. Moreover, there is a picturesque town of Cudillero only 10 km (6 mi) away, which is worth visiting while in the area.
When to go there?

How to get there?
The best way to get around the region is by car or bus.
