I thought the place would be bigger from photos, but it is no less stunning. It's an inland beach that is really beautiful, and we'll worth a visit. We went in autumn and it was too cold to swim but it would be a great place to take a dip. Clear water, clean beach and fascinating geology. Need a car... More

This little beach is close to the highway, but expect to spend a bit of time when you will get back on the road again. Unless you turn your car and drive in the opposite direction of what you came, you'll drive on bad narrow roads for quite a while. The place is little beach and lagoon filled with relatively...

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).
