    San Juan de Nieva beach in Asturias - panoramic view

    This, again, is not a beach on its own, it’s actually “glued” to the beach of Salinas in Castrillón. Glued might not be the right word, they are actually the same big one called The Espartal, a 3 km long sandy beach like very few in Asturias. But since the Western one belongs to the […]

    Barchinas beach in Valdés, Asturias, Spain

    You will find this beach under more than one name: it’s called Barchinas but also Vachinas or Vallino.
