  • Look up the tide *and* the waves height before you go! The "bufones" are spectacular (water comes out, pretty high too!) but only in very rare occasions, when the swell is very high and it's high tide. If the waves are high but not exceptional, you can still go at high tide. Don't expect to see actual geysers of water, but you'll still hear the powerful air movement, and maybe even feel it! Some cloud-like water droplets may come out, too.
  • Stunning view of the cliffs, fresh air and overall just a very recommended spot to stop by in Asturias!
