Our innkeeper gave us a small walking map to these bufones but he was very clear about the fact that we would see nothing since they are fully active in winter. Good to know, but we walked there in September and just the sounds were...More

You can drive all the way down a dirt track to park near the main bufone (read hole in the ground that spews sea water when the waves crash into a cave below your feet). From there it’s a lovey walk through the geo park...More

Something different that I have never had a chance to experience in my life! Definitely worth a visit, and spectacular views all around just going on a stroll.

Actually drove there & easy to park up but most people walk as track not suitable for all cars. Amazing experience & the noise so thunderous. I visited when the tide was up, wet & windy so I'm sure this helps the spectacle. Nature at...More

We walked about 3-4 miles to this location. If there is rough seas you will see the holes spouting. BUT it is worth checking out in any weather . Nice views of the cliffs. Be very careful walking around the cliffs the edges drop off...More

It is quite a spectacular coastline but on the day we visited the sea was relatively calm so the bufones were just making an angry sound and were not ejecting water. If there is a heavy onshore swell they would be much better - see...More

While exploring the countryside and coast near Llanes, we came upon a 'blow hole' (National Monument known as Bufones de Arenillas). As you walk towards the rock you can hear a tremendous roar of the sea. Such blowholes are formed by sea caves growing landwards,...More

Well worth walking the 15 minutes to the sea from the centre of Puertas de Vidiago to see the Bufones. A nice walk and once you reach the sea, unbelievable vistas.
