Why Families Should Head to Costa Verde Spain

If you’re looking for the perfect spot in Europe to take your family on holiday, you should book a trip to the Costa Verde, a.k.a. Spain’s ‘Green Coast’. Complete with picturesque landscapes, exciting activities and luxury accommodation, this part of Spain is the perfect destination for all the family.

Here’s three reasons why you should head to this part of the world for your next family holiday:

Stunning Landscapes to Explore

In the region of Asturias lies Picos de Europa National Park, where families of explorers will discover a magnificent landscape featuring limestone cliffs, deep valleys and beautiful rivers and lakes, all surrounded by the dramatic snow-capped peaks of the Cantabrian Mountains.

There’s something here for everyone if you’re a family who loves the outdoors. Whether you want to practice your photography skills, explore the caves or try to spot a golden eagle, a chamois, deer or wild boar, families can spend an entire day in this national park and never be short of something to do.

Fun Museums for All the Family

Children and adults alike will love the Asturias Jurassic Museum in Colunga, which is dedicated to the Mesozoic era, or the Age of the Dinosaurs. Shaped like the footprint of a tridactyl, the actual museum building is just as interesting the fascinating exhibitions that it homes…

The roof is made from copper, which will eventually develop a green shade and integrate with the landscape, and the interior of the building has wooden structures in semi-circular arches that form the ribs of the dinosaur.

There’s also plenty of exhibitions to explore upon arrival, workshops to book onto, a children’s play area outside, gardens with replicas of dinosaurs and gorgeous views of the Asturian coast – perfect for all the family.

Unique Spots to Stay

Costa Verde is the perfect spot for families who prefer a unique holiday and it’s one of the Eurocamp spots that offers luxury camping to keep every member of the family happy when visiting Spain.

With mobile homes, safari tents and lodges available in their holiday parcs, all of which are nearby to the main tourist sites, the fun won’t end for adults and kids alike. There’s plenty of pools, activities, shops, spas and restaurants, so you can get the best of both worlds with unique accommodation and a great central spot to see all the sights.


With picturesque sights and activities for every family member whatever their age, just one visit won’t be enough when you head to the Costa Verde. You’ll be booking to go back to this part of the world year after year and still find new things to see and do each time!

Fun fact: One of my first big travel experiences was to study abroad in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain! Have you been? What would you add here?
