Beaches in Asturias having the blue flag eco-label

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). The rock, as many others […]

ArnaoCastropol, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Arnao beach in Castropol, Asturias

This Arnao beach is the one in Castropol, the most western municipality of Asturias. There is another Arnao beach in the municipality of Castrillón, right in the center, so it’s impossible to mistake one for another.

San Juan de Nieva beach in Asturias - panoramic view

This, again, is not a beach on its own, it’s actually “glued” to the beach of Salinas in Castrillón. Glued might not be the right word, they are actually the same big one called The Espartal, a 3 km long sandy beach like very few in Asturias. But since the Western one belongs to the […]

RodilesVillaviciosa, Asturias

Rodiles beach in Asturias, Spain seen from above

Rodiles, being an extended beach, deserves an extended post since you can visit Rodiles 10 times a year and see it completely changed each time. And, I believe, it’s not because the sea has changed, but because YOU did! Tourists love the beach of Rodiles for being special place and the beach with the most […]

SablónLlanes, Asturias

Panoramic view of the Sablón beach in Llanes, Spain

Sablón beach is one of the urban beaches of Llanes and the easiest to find because it’s right in the center of the town very visible from the promenade on the cliffs, called Paseo de San Pedro – Sain Peter’s promenade.
