There are houses of indianos, there are exotic palm trees, there are hydrangeas of impossible colors, there are good restaurants of traditional cuisine and even a port … but something you perceive in its (pseudo) marine atmosphere that tells you that no, you are not facing the typical picture of an Asturian coastal town. Relax, that’s exactly why, because it is not. San Esteban de Pravia is exceptional.
A word of advice, if you are tempted to go down to one of the deserted beaches (some of them nudist) that you will see from the viewpoints, keep in mind that in many cases the access is very complicated. And we are not overusing the adverb. For example, to descend to the beaches of the Atalaya and Cazonera you will almost have to ‘rappel’ down a steep path on a rope, and without a safety harness!
At the mouth of the Nalón, on the other side of the estuary, we find Los Quebrantos, the enormous beach of San Juan de la Arena which, together with the neighboring Playón de Bayas, forms the longest sandy beach in the Principality. With dark and stony sand, strong waves and protected by a dune system, it is one of the favorite playgrounds for surfers (in fact there are several surf schools stationed there).

Another attraction for the visitor is the spectacular route of the viewpoints. We can start the route in the Mirador del Espíritu Santo, in San Esteban, and finish it in Aguilar Beach (Muros del Nalón). A path with no appreciable slope that runs along this beautiful coastline and totals about 9 kilometers round trip. A beauty that dazzled the legendary poet Ruben Dario. The Nobel Prize winner enjoyed several summers in this town.
The Bajo Nalón region as a whole is well worth a visit as it is home to a multitude of attractive landscapes and heritage sites. It includes the municipalities of Pravia, Soto del Barco, Muros del Nalón and Cudillero. With an area of 250.73 square kilometers, the territory is marked by the presence of the Nalón River and the beginning of the western coast of Asturias. Its pre-Romanesque heritage is very prominent, not in vain King Silo moved the Asturian court from Cangas de Onís to the council of Pravia in the eighth century AD. The area also endured a high Romanization due to gold mining.

The first document in which the name of the town appears dates from 1148. “Ideo do et offero hunc monasterium uocabulo Sancti Stephani de Boca de Mar, in territorio Prauia, super flumine Nelone. Do et concedo illo ad Sancta Maria de Lapedo integro per suis locis antiquis.”[5].
It underwent a great boom and growth from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century as it was used as an industrial port to provide an outlet to the sea for coal ore extracted in the mining valleys of Mieres, Aller, Riosa, Teverga, Quirós, Cangas del Narcea and Tineo, among others.
The Pravia to Villablino Railway, which although its works began, never came into service, was intended to transport to the port of San Esteban the ore extracted in the upper basin of the Narcea River and in the mining area of Bierzo.
San Esteban is accessible from the N-632 road and the Autovía del Cantábrico, through the local roads MU-1 and MU-2. By rail, through Line F-7 of Cercanías Asturias (San Esteban de Pravia station).
