We have a situation here involving Aramar beach so I will try to explain it as best as possible. There are 3 beaches in the village of Aramar and only one is called Aramar beach in the maps you will find on the roads around it (actually the map will only show you 2 beaches but you will clearly see 3 if you happen to be nearby with high tide).

So who is who in Aramar?

From West to East we have El Dique beach, then Aramar beach and towards East after Del Carmen island you will find El Carmen beach.

The islet Del Carmen is hosting El Carmen hermitage, easy to spot and quite famous for the procession being held there every year when the local fiesta takes place.

That’s the story of the beaches of Aramar 馃檪

In our beach app Asturplaya we have El Dique beach on its own, then we combined Aramar and El Carmen beach although with low tide all 3 of them join forming one extended rocky area that allows you to walk to the island of El Carmen and see the hermitage up close.

Getting to the Aramar beach is easy, you can do it either by foot or by car but be aware that the parking at the beach is not very big and you might find it full in the summer.

Once here you will see a small picnic area on the hills surrounding the beach, a few showers and also, maybe, an open beach bar in the summer.

The beach is rather big, almost 200 meters long when it joins El Dique with low tide, made of gravel and very, very little sand. Low tide uncovers a huge area of underwater rocks that allow you to reach the El Carmen island and see the hermitage up close.

If you love fishing you will find this to be a good fishing spot, the nearby beach of El Carmen being also good for underwater fishing.
