Our only parc on Spain’s green northern coast makes the most of its idyllic location

Arrive at Playa Joyel on the Costa Verde and prepare to be wowed: this parc sits between the Atlantic Ocean and the Cantabrian Mountains, with direct access to a glorious, sandy beach.

There’s something for everyone here: two tennis courts, an underground disco (open every night in July and August), plus a play area and even an animal park that opens twice a week. But the main attraction has to be the beach nearby. Playa Joyel is known as the ‘Green Coast’, thanks to the sea’s rich green and blue waters and lush scenery all around. In the distance, the peaks of the Cantabrian and Picos de Europa mountains rise up spectacularly. And you’re just a short walk from lively Noja. Perfect for shopping, eating and dancing. Anyone for tapas?
