San Antonio beach in Asturias, Spain - panoramic view

San Antonio beach, Llanes, Asturias

29 November, 2014

You’ll have to walk to San Antonio beach. More or less, it depends on you only, but I suggest you should walk more. There’s a bumpy road you could take to get here by car but you will miss all the beauty that you can see by taking the coastal footpath that starts from the Cuevas del Mar beach (this coastal path is actually way bigger, linking all the beaches of Llanes and even Asturias).

Landscape around San Antonio beach

To the left you have the San Antonio headland hiding a small cove, to the right San Antonio beach and some more small hidden coves (Gulpiyuri beach being the most famous).

San Antonio beach is special because 1: it’s secluded, there is no tarmac road to San Antonio and 2: because this is one of those places where you can dive in the ocean in June and see mountains covered in snow at the same time. Not having the easiest access means that, although crowded in the summer, it still feels like it’s secret 馃檪

At San Antonio beach

San Antonio beach in Llanes, Asturias, Spain

With crystal clear turquoise water and fine sand, San Antonio is surrounded by spectacular cliffs that hide it from accidental visitors.

San Antonio is not a big beach, it’s 70 meters long and has no amenities and no lifeguard service. Nothing! It is also a nudist beach (mixed actually, there are no 100% nudist beaches in Asturias).

It is also surrounded by small coves but that is something you will have to discover on your own cause I won’t say a thing… best kept secrets become wonderful surprises when you’re in Llanes (hint: download our beach guide: AsturPlaya and search for other beaches around your position).

I won’t say more, discover it your own way! I’ll just add 2 more photos, that’s all 馃檪
