Del BurroCoaña, Asturias

Panoramic view of Del Burro beach in Asturias, Spain

Del Burro is the typical secluded beach that you can see from above, so the question is: why did I added it in our beach app Asturplaya and why am I writing about it here in the blog? If you happen to visit Cartavio – because you heard that is a village with lots of […]

Pedreyada & BigoixCoaña, Asturias

Pedreyada beach in Asturias, Spain
