The beach of Toranda - panoramic view

Toranda or Niembro beach, Llanes, Asturias

17 November, 2014

This beach is known locally as Toranda but you will find it on official maps as Niembro beach – that’s because it takes the name of the village it’s located in. The interesting thing is that Niembro has more than one beach, remember Valle and Sovalle?

It’s really easy to find Toranda, there are signs everywhere in Niembro showing you the path – the problem is that the parking is pretty small (during the summer months the beach is crowded) and you might want to leave your car in the village and continue on foot.

If you love trekking then you should know that there’s a coastal trail (called E-9) that links all the beaches of Llanes (and Asturias) and that will leave you at Toranda too.

Once here you’ll discover a 300 meters long beach – low tide unveils a huge surface of hidden golden sand and the toranda gets quite big (100 meters wide) and rocky. Its Western side has some spectacular rock formations that separates it from the neighboring twin beaches of Valle and Sovalle.

Toranda has lifeguard during the summer, showers, but no toilets. It has no bars or restaurants nearby, except the ones you’ll find in the village of Niembro where you will also find accommodation – our beach app AsturPlaya can take you there, download it now and enjoy the coastline of Llanes!

This is what you will see the second you will step on the sand:
