Monellos beach in El Franco

Monellos beach, El Franco, Asturias

10 November, 2014

Monellos is a pebbly beach sheltered from the open sea which makes it a good place for the lovers of underwater fishing.

It is a beach without amenities but with a picnic area, perfect for trekking enthusiasts. It’s accessible from the village of Viavelez, following the GR E-9 coastal trail – leave the car near the church of Valdeparres and take the path to the right after passing the church and the castle.

This trail also leads to the beach of Torbas (careful, there is more than one Torbas beach in Asturias).

Monellos a small beach of pebbles and gravel hidden between cliffs, accessible only by foot. It has no amenities but it does have a picnic area and recently built stairs so you won’t have problems climbing down.

It’s not an accessible beach and, unfortunately, not very easy to find since the only sign that guides you is right at the beach instead of the E-9 entry path that might take you there – our beach app AsturPlaya can take you there, download it now!
