Need advise on avoiding the drop off area before getting to Laredo from Liendo.

Also, how bad is the climb out of Playa de Berria? Is it dangerous or scary?

Yes
I don't recall any area that is dangerous or scary.....as long as the normal path is taken. I supose it is possible to go off trail and get near a cliff somewhere..but certainly not something most people do. The Norte is a very safe and normal route that is pretty much just a long walk.

I am not sure what the "drop off" is near Laredo. It may be that you have been reading some blogs/guides that over dramatize portions of the route. At least, this is my recollection.

We’re on the Norte now but I’m scratching my head over “drop off area.” Can you provide more info? Can’t find anything on my photos...

We chickened out on the beach walk from Berria to Noja but had a nice walk along the road.

The beach route (over the sand dune) was interesting when we walked there....an unexpected full nudist beach..pretty crowded...we did look a bit strange in our camino clothes and packs walking through the sun bathers. :cool::cool:

One of the odder times we have experience on our many camino walks.
