Really hard to find. No road signs, no locals can help. The place itself is a tiny cave with lots and lots of people inside and outside. Strange location and nothing more.

I found out about this place some time ago, from one of these internet lists of the most unusual/interesting beaches one has to see. I do really think it deserves its place on such a list. Unfortunately it's not very easy to find, as there are not road signs. We went more by just following our nose, slowly driving along... More

Everybody knows about this place. Bad news is trying to find a spot to park your car since you have to walk to get there. When you get there you see way too many people lying on a tiny beach that was formed in a peculiar way, and way too many people taking pictures of the ocean getting through the... More

Enjoy this natural wonder before its too late, the asturian government wants to make a road and a parking just next to the beach, that will eventually ruin it an its charm!!!

It is an inland beach. A singular force of nature! it should be visited in the high tide since by then it is filled with water from underground tunnels. You can even feel the tide in the water. Great for kids!

The landscape of the entire Asturias' coast is for me surprisingly good, specially Llanes. The road access is a bit complicated if you drive a car, but once you step that beach you feel amazingly recompensated. I recommed Asturians food. My Godness 30 years have passed and I still wheat my tonger reembering it.

This is a really amazing place to see - a beach in the middle of a field - but it is so popular that I'd suggest going, having a quick dip, dry off and then head off to another beach for the rest of the day. (Also try and go near high-tide so the water is actually in).

Great natural rare creation. A tiny beach in the middle of the green land (300 m. from the coast). After having a look to it you can enjoy the normal sized beach following the trail across the meadows. You'll have to visit it by car. The parking lot is absolutely improvised (side of the road, etc.) Hence, the place gets... More

This was probably my favourite beach. Go there with the low tide otherwise it becomes less spectacular. With the high tide the beach is protected by the rocks and looks more like a swimming pool

What it is: It truly is unique. An inland beach - a sandy beach with salt water and waves but not directly on the ocean! Its separated by a rock massif and so you cannot see the sea. You need to go at high tide. You can easily swim. To get there: Take the 313 exit off the A-8 (Naves)... More
