This beach is one of the 4 beaches belonging to a resort called Perlora, a small town built especially for tourists in a really marvelous surrounding (The other beaches you will find in Perlora are: Huelgues, De Los Curas beach and Perán (technically this one does not belong to Perlora – long story). You can get to Perlora by car or by foot following a trail that starts in Xivares (you do remember the beaches of Xivares, don’t you?)
Well, if you leave the car in Xivares and follow the footpath (called Senda Verde – The Green Path) built really close to the railway you will simply walk on the cliffs of the municipality of Carreño which will be an opportunity for you to enjoy some really amazing views of the coastline and the ocean.
Senda Verde (now closed right above El Tranqueru beach due to a huge landslide happening in 2013) will take you to a beach called El Tranqueru and then to Perlora, the first beach seen being Carranques. Carranques beach is interesting because it has the form of two small shells divided by a headland. It’s a sandy beach, 220 meters long with a lot of amenities that I’m sure you will instantly love.

It benefits from a lifeguard service during the summer months, it has showers, toilets and plenty of parking spots (although they don’t seem to be enough especially during high season weekends).
There’s a beach bar nearby, lots of picnic areas and also a camping. Both halves of the beach are accessible for people with reduced mobility.
It’s worth mentioning the fact that both sides of Carranques disappear with high tide, this happening with all the beaches of Perlora. In Perlora, within walking distance from Carranques you will also find a restaurant, more attractions being available to you in the nearby city of Candás.
