Panoramic view of the Peñarrubia beach in Gijón, Asturias

The Peñarrubia beach is closed for safety reasons! Which is a pity, really, this beach is extremely beautiful and quite close to Gijón. It’s been closed a few years back because of massive landslides – actually the restaurant on top of the cliffs is slowly going down (closed too) and big rocks are constantly falling. […]

San Antonio beach in Asturias, Spain - panoramic view

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 […]

Puertu Chicu & Las MujeresLlanes, Asturias

Puertu Chicu beach in Llanes, Asturias

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 🙂 So […]
