From the parking place (15 m) you take the steps up to the cliffs and continue along a walkway to the recreation area of La Mofosa (7min) (40 m). The sea view over the bay of Luanco reach all the way to the Picos de Europa.

In a couple of minutes you can visit another cape, with views of the Punta l'Aguión in front and Punta de la Vaca behind, before you continue on the main path.

The path descends through an eucalyptus forest to a junction (45min) (60 m), where you turn right towards Moniello. Once you reach the beach of Moniello (50min) (10 m), cross a narrow asphalt road to the steps, which ascend to the beach park of Moniello (Parque Playa de Moniello) (55min) (25 m).
