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

Off the beaten track and involves a short walk down what feels like a dried river bed, this is a great yet weird place to visit. Basically the sea has broken through the cliffs and formed an inland beach. It felt a little odd sitting on the sand with fields behind us and cliffs in front! What potentially made it... More

Beautiful beach hidden in a cove. Not too crowded and I hope it stays that way. Water is warm and cool water

stayed in Naves which is within walking distance of this beach. you have to leave your car and walk between two fields/vegetable plots to find it. i would not recommend going without good shoes as the access is very steep and narrow but you can view the beach easily without accessing. the sea only comes into it when the tide...

This beach is hard to find, but well worth a visit. Looks just like the pictures- small and peaceful. Good for a short visit or a long nap. No facilities or drinking water however!

Bit of a trek to get there, walk across a field to get to it. Had a very friendly goat in the field that loved having his picture taken with everyone. We went on a very sunny day, and it is deep enough to swim in and was warm water. Worth going to if you are touring Asturias.
