Finding El Dique beach is easy, especially if you are familiar with Luanco and its surroundings. With high tide it joins the Aramar beach and it’s harder to know which one is which so let me tell you right from the start. El Dique is the Western part of Aramar beach, or the other way around: Aramar beach is the Eastern side of El Dique.
On the roads surrounding Aramar (especially the trails) there are maps showing you the exact location of each one so you won’t get lost.
You can get to El Dique from the Aramar beach with low tide (just walk past the rocks separating them) or from the outskirts of Luanco following a road taking you to a neighborhood called Los Laureles.
This road will take you right at this beach, crossing a small forest and leaving you in a really, really small parking. You might as well leave the car outside Luanco and just walk to El Dique, it’s a pleasant and short walk.
Once here you will or you will not see the beach depending on the tide. El dique beach completely disappears with high tide and the only people you might encounter will probably be fishermen.
With low tide you will see a rather small beach (80 – 100 meters long) of rocks, gravel and sand surrounded by cliffs and trees.
A beautiful place to be on a sunny day!
