    A beach to enjoy

    The beach of Xagó is a wild space, a large cove of 2 kilometers rectilinear in which prevails its ecological charm and its wide range for beach leisure.

    It is part of the protected area of ​​the central coast dominated by high cliffs, where each beach is a unique and surprising gift. It is located on the western edge of the impressive Cabo Peñas, on a naturalized, rocky coastline, but in Xagó, thanks to the erosive action, it becomes the beach itself and a dune set that, with more than 350.000 square meters of surface area, is the best conserved of Asturias.
