Beaches in Asturias with boulders

MonielloGozón, Asturias

Moniello beach in Gozón, Asturias, Spain

There’s a hype here in Asturias about Moniello, suddenly people from central Asturias discovered that they have a hidden cove really close to them and decided to spend their weekends at this beach in an attempt to avoid the more crowded beaches of Gijón or Villaviciosa. The result is the transformation of a cove that […]

BarchinasValdés, Asturias

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. Not sure if you will see this name on maps since this beach is quite secluded and has no (visible) descent. Not to mention the complete lack of any amenities or parking. Then why do I write […]

SalenciaCudillero, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Salencia beach in Cudillero, Asturias, Spain

You might find Salencia beach under other names such as Lindebarcas or Yendebarcas mainly because that is the name of the stream that flows into the sea here, forming this cove. It’s one of the less known beaches of Cudillero being dwarfed by a very popular neighbor: Del Silencio beach. It’s pretty easy to get […]

El PortielloRibadesella, Asturias

El Portiello Cove in Ribadesella, Asturias, Spain

It happens that a lot of coves or beaches are called Portiello in Asturias, this one being the only one in Ribadesella. There are 2 more in Llanes and one in Cudillero, but again, although we saw most of the beaches and hidden coves in Asturias we surely missed some. Impossible not to. So who […]

Samarincha & SamarinchinaGozón, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Samarincha beach in Asturias

I write about Samarincha and Samarinchina together because they have similar names and they are separated by a small cliff called Punta Samarincha. Actually finding them is easy, all you have to do is go to Luanco and search for a street called Travesía de Samarinchina. It’s that obvious. Or maybe not, cause there are […]

Xilo o Veneiro beach in Muros de Nalón, Asturias, Spain

Xilo beach, also known as Veneiro beach, is one of the well known beaches of the municipality of Muros de Nalón. Although not as famous as its bigger neighbor Aguilar, Xilo is still quite popular especially in the summer weekends mainly for benefiting from some of the amenities Aguilar has. It’s easy to get to […]
