Beaches in the municipality of Castropol, Asturias

Dos Botes & El TesónCastropol, Asturias

Dos Botes beach and the Figuera marina in Castropol, Asturias, Spain

I will write about both beaches in the same post because Dos Botes beach and El Tesón island have similar fates and are also neighbors. The peculiarity is that these are not 2 beaches like others I “paired” before, Dos Botes is a rocky beach but El Tesón is actually a sand island. They both […]

PenarrondaCastropol, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Penarronda beach in Asturias, Spain

You will find this beach under two names: Penarronda or Peñarronda, both referring to the river that flows here into the sea (the Peñarronda river) and the impressive pierced rock that you can see in the middle of the beach (with low tide, it’s in the water with high tide).

San RománCastropol, Asturias

The beach of San Román in Asturias - panoramic view

San Román is going to give you headaches at the beginning cause, although it’s considered an urban beach, is quite tricky to find by tourists (and the answer to your question is No, there are no signs to guide you…sorry). You can find San Roman hidden behind newly built villas on Avenida Gondán, east of […]
