Everyone, Asturian or not, knows Torimbia, the most popular nudist beach of Asturias. Its shape and winding access make it impossible to forget and once you were here, you will remember it forever. Why is that?
Torimbia is a typical shell-shaped beach of white sand (and boulders right under the cliffs), 500 meters long, with crystal clear water and quite secluded. In this shell, with high tide, you can see that 2 more beaches are forming – the biggest one near the beach is called Portacos and the smaller one towards West being called Portaquinos.
Finding Torimbia is easy, you can get here by car (the parking is minuscule and people park everywhere in the summer, creating huge bottlenecks in the village) or by foot from the village of Niembro, in Llanes – our beach app AsturPlaya can take you there, download it now!
You can also get here by bicycle from the village cause there is a trail that follows the shore and links the beach of Toranda and the one of Torimbia. The trail is in good shape and the view is spectacular, I would choose this option (in the gallery above there is one panoramic pictures showing Torimbia to the left and Toranda beach to the right).
Once here you will probably see a crowded beach in the summer, with lifeguard only during the weekends (high season only) and showers. There are no toilets, nothing else.
The trail to the beach is pretty long (yes, even for Asturias) and winding, but very well maintained. Usually.
Torimbia is not a nudist-only beach, it is rather a mixed one – actually no nudist beach in Asturias is used exclusively by naturists and it is impossible to be so since the tourists and locals all want to be able to enjoy these wonders. And wonders they all are.
Torimbia, Portacos and Portaquinos
After leaving you at the beach of Torimbia, the trail continues and can also leave you to two more tiny beaches towards West: the biggest is called Portacos beach (center) and with low tide is part of Torimbia and the smaller one is called Portaquinos beach and is also “independent” with high tide (this is the smallest to the right).
