There’s a lot to say about Espasa beach and even more to see and enjoy there. Where should I start from?
It’s one of the most famous beaches of Caravia so it is easy to find, mostly because the national road N-632 was built right to its side.
It has a huge parking with a picnic area, a few bars & restaurants and a children playground.
It’s an extensive beach of almost 1 200 meters wide, accessible for people with limited mobility and quite popular during summer months.
