Villaviciosa district

Villaviciosa, the centre of the cider industry is a more prosperous town, situated slightly inland on a river estuary.

This has been declared a protected area and is good for watching migratory birds (particularly in late September and early October.)

It is also possible to rent a boat on the estuary (summer only), and the beach at Rodiles is also worth visiting (swimming with care.)

Tazones is another small fishing port close to Villaviciosa, popular with locals for eating seafood.
