Beaches in Asturias that have pebbles

Dos Botes & El TesónCastropol, Asturias

Dos Botes beach and the Figuera marina in Castropol, Asturias, Spain

I will write about both beaches in the same post because Dos Botes beach and El Tesón island have similar fates and are also neighbors. The peculiarity is that these are not 2 beaches like others I “paired” before, Dos Botes is a rocky beach but El Tesón is actually a sand island. They both […]

Del Cabo (Busto)Valdés, Asturias

Panoramic view of the beach of Cape Busto, or Del Cabo - in Asturias, Spain

Although Cape Busto is a very well know and popular place in Asturias (and in Spain), very few people actually know the name of all the beaches surrounding it even though there is a coastal trail that links all of them (the PR-AS4 trail).

If I tell you that Arnela is a beach hidden in the Eo estuary then you might know exactly where is that, since the Eo river is the natural limit between Asturias and Galicia. It might also sound familiar if you are a friend of this blog – we recently wrote about another beach inside […]

Maybe because it’s not centric or because it’s a beach of pebbles and boulders (and almost no sand) it seems to […]

ArraRibadesella, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Arra beach in Ribadesella, Asturias, Spain

Arra is the last beach in the municipality of Ribadesella, running along the bottom of windswept cliffs battered by the sea, in an area where sandy beaches are nonexistent. This beach shows up on all guides and maps, being promoted by the local tourism board. But really, REALLY finding it is almost impossible, for 2 […]
