Playa de Gulpiyuri is a unique experience a beach with waves but just far enough in land as to be a bit "weird" . Limestone cliffs allow for blow holes to be formed and with the steep but magnificent Asturian coastline not allowing the formation of too many beaches people do tend to flock to this one at high tide.

It's a natural formation beach that gets it's water from the holes on the cliff. That enough is a reason to visit. However, take into account that you enjoy it the most if the tide is high. If you're looking for a beach to spend the day or part of it I wouldn't recommend it because it's quite small and... More

To arrive at this beach you can use google maps or similar. There is a free parking close to the "beach", and you only need to walk for 4 minutes. The water emerges feon under some rocks and also has waves. The problem is that deppending on the day you may find nearly no water. Luckily close to it you... More

Really interesting geological phenomenon which means you get to sit on a beach or paddle in the sea despite that sea being separated from you on the other side of a hill at least 100m distance. Getting to the beach is a bit tricky (you turn off down a track where there is some free car parking) and then is... More

This secret little beach is a great site to see after walking a few hundred meters through paddocks. Wow nature is amazing! Great little side trip for a roadtrip break from the car.

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
