El DiqueGozón, Asturias

El Dique beach near Luanco, Asturias, Spain

Finding El Dique beach is easy, especially if you are familiar with Luanco and its surroundings. With high tide it joins the Aramar beach and it’s harder to know which one is which so let me tell you right from the start. El Dique is the Western part of Aramar beach, or the other way […]

We have a situation here involving Aramar beach so I will try to explain it as best as possible. There are 3 beaches in the village of Aramar and only one is called Aramar beach in the maps you will find on the roads around it (actually the map will only show you 2 beaches […]

Los Molinos de BarciaValdés, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Los Molinos de Barcia beach in Asturias, Spain

We saw Los Molinos de Barcia beach from two angles and, even though a bit difficult, you can reach it from 2 opposite directions, both requiring a bit of effort from your part. Trekkers will love this beach and the surrounding area, most of the beaches of Valdés sharing the same characteristics: secluded, with complicated […]

Sienra beach in Cudillero, Asturias, Spain - panoramic view

It happens that Cudillero has a lot of spectacular beaches, most of them secluded and hard to “conquer”, and Sienra beach is no exception. I do not complain, at least we managed to see a trail going down and that is a major discovery considering that Sienra is surrounded by coves and beaches that are […]

GarganteraGozón, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Gargantera beach in Asturias, Spain

Gargantera is one of the beaches a lot of people do not like: it has no amenities, no lifeguard, a small parking and hey, on top of all this, no descent! Or at least not one that I would recommend, I did not see one but I know locals do climb down to it somehow […]
