El Garruncho is a beach of small dimensions, with big waves and an average range of services BUUUUUUUT….is the parting point of a footpath called Senda Verde or Ruta de Los Miradores (The Green Path or The Scenic Balcony Trail) which closely follows the entire coastline of Muros de Nalón and will take you to the last beach of this municipality, called Aguilar beach.
And it has another secret – it joins the nearby beach of Focarón thus forming a really extensive beach that locals call the beach of San Esteban or El Espigón beach.
You can park your car in the huge parking of El Garruncho and its sister beaches (Focarón and La Guardada) and take the Green Path cause in one day only day you can see the entire coastline of Muros de Nalón.
Muros has beaches of completely different sizes, shapes and composition (some with perfectly golden sand and some having sharp rocks and gravel).
Some of them are difficult to get to and most of them are only accessible from the coastal trail – our beach app AsturPlaya can take you to all of them, download it now!
