Puertu Chicu beach in Llanes, Asturias

Puertu Chicu & Las Mujeres beach, Llanes, Asturias

12 December, 2014

Puertu Chicu beach is actually 2 beaches. Where in the maps there is one, locals see two and so do I! I never saw Puertu Chicu with really really low tide but I suspect these 2 do not join – but even if they do it’s funny to have two beaches in one 馃檪

So who’s who? Easy! If you get there you will see there’s a promenade surrounding a viewpoint. Towards East lies Puertu Chicu (right picture – you can also see here the viewpoint) and towards West Las Mujeres also know as Las Muyeres (same wording but in Asturian language, meaning The Women – left picture).

Now, these are urban beaches but they have few amenities (one shower only), no lifeguard, no toilets, nothing. You can park anywhere you can find a spot around them – there is a parking nearby and lot of parking spots in Llanes – some free of charge, some not (during summer months you have to pay for the parking spots that have blue lines).

But since Llanes is a rather small town you will find a lot more joy in walking from beach to beach than driving 馃檪
