La EntradaLlanes, Asturias

La Entrada beach in Niembro, Llanes, Asturias

Finding La Entrada beach is rather easy, most of the beaches in the municipality of Llanes being quite accessible, with parking, amenities, some of them urban and surrounded by bars, restaurants and accommodation.

PenarrondaCastropol, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Penarronda beach in Asturias, Spain

You will find this beach under two names: Penarronda or Peñarronda, both referring to the river that flows here into the sea (the Peñarronda river) and the impressive pierced rock that you can see in the middle of the beach (with low tide, it’s in the water with high tide).

Santa GadeaTapia de Casariego, Asturias

Western side of the Santa Gadea or Ribeiria beach in Tapia de Casariego

EspasaCaravia, Asturias

Espasa beach, panoramic view

There’s a lot to say about Espasa beach and even more to see and enjoy there. Where should I start from? It’s one of the most famous beaches of Caravia so it is easy to find, mostly because the national road N-632 was built right to its side. It has a huge parking with a […]
