We parked up and visited this geological curiosity - an inland beach, fed by tunnel through the cliffs. There’s a nice little stretch of the Camino to walk eat along the coast to great views of a big sea arch too

This beach is a present from Mother Nature. The only issue I have is that the people are going to destroy the beauty of it. PLEASE IF YOU VISIT LOOK AFTER THE NATURAL AREA.

A great place for sitting and watching the water come in through the cave. A unique landform created by sinkholes and caves.

Playa de Gulpiyuri is a unique experience a beach with waves but just far enough in land as to be a bit "weird" . Limestone cliffs allow for blow holes to be formed and with the steep but magnificent Asturian coastline not allowing the formation...More

It's a natural formation beach that gets it's water from the holes on the cliff. That enough is a reason to visit. However, take into account that you enjoy it the most if the tide is high. If you're looking for a beach to spend...More

To arrive at this beach you can use google maps or similar. There is a free parking close to the "beach", and you only need to walk for 4 minutes. The water emerges feon under some rocks and also has waves. The problem is that...More
