More than thirty beaches It is the baggage of a sea tired of war that seeks in harbors and estuaries, but also in the harder and higher cliffs, the precise size for custom rooms, limestone sculptures that can be admired, and underground for those who keep looking for their own calm.
The coves, scattered and unusual, also have older sisters, who extend their means of travel more than is likely in the region. The dimensions of the rest vary from the average size to the small and from the smallest to the smallest.

Map: how to get to Las playas de Llanes
Throughout the 35 coastal kilometers of Llanes, they await an unusual density of villages, and a gritty routine with statistically probable creeks every thousand meters.
In coves such as Buelna, in the easternmost corner of the Llanisca coast, or "Gulpiyuri", near the central village of Naves, the sea is almost an error. The latter has been declared a natural monument. If the bather comes at low tide you will not find more than a trail of sand surrounded by crags. But the tide rises and through the cracks of its natural enclosure it creeps into the water until it turns the sand into an exotic pool in the middle of the meadow.
To be more exact, and to contribute some figure to the dimensions of these beaches, the length varies from the 20 meters of the Villanueva, to the 1200 of San Antolín. The large thickness can be called coves strictly, and do not exceed the 150 meters in length, although we are also older, such as Vidiago 200 meters, Toró: 220, Andrín: 240, Barro: 250 (one of the busiest in summer), Toranda (European blue flag): 300, Ballota: 350, Cue: 380, Palombina: 300, Borizu: 400, Torimbia (for the practitioners of nudism, of extraordinary beauty): 500, EL Portiello de San Martín: 750
They mostly result unforgettable corners, with scarce traces of direct urbanization on the coast, beaches of an almost virgin aesthetic that from here we invite you to enjoy with respect and ecological sense. It is also convenient to respect the shifts of the stations and not to enjoy them strictly in July and August, when some of them have a large influx. The beaches of Llanes are a privileged setting for a comforting walk almost any month of the year. In spring and autumn the occupation is usually very low, and it is not completely impossible to take a bath, since the months of May, June and September usually include favorable days to bathe and sunbathe occasionally. The best thing is to be well informed in meteorological matters, which also does not suppose a blind belief in the televising parts, since the unpredictability of the time is almost an Asturian truth. The apparatuses to measure the climatology do not usually adapt to this arbitrariness by more turns of nut that receive their mechanisms.
Also note that the beaches of Llanes are not beaches to use in many cases. They present a rugged idiosyncrasy that is difficult to find elsewhere. To the invasion of the meadows in the limits of the beach itself, they usually accompany rocks majestically carved that like works of a fine sculptor are arranged here and there to be admired. The islets and forts are often frequent, and highlights in this regard the Andrin beach with an enormous castro equidistant from the arch of the beach that delights those who contemplate it from above.
Embedded as they are in small broken of the cliffs, the plains beaches usually coexist also with huge geological formations eroded that create natural bridges and unusual scenes on other coasts. The beach of Cuevas del Mar stands out in this sense, of fantastic beauty because of the cavities that the rocks present everywhere. It is located in the beautiful village of Nueva de Llanes.
Although at this point it is a truism, the grain of the sand of these beaches is white, in some cases white, and fine, finest where the sea has beaten the most. The conditions of the bath are usually typical of calm waters in summer season, although it is not an absolute truth more than for the coves very collected in themselves. The beaches open to the sea, although they enjoy a certain maritime tranquility in the summer, can be dangerous if the bad days are not respected by the bathers. In most of the beaches, those that have a high or average concurrence, there are lifeguard and surveillance personnel.
Accessibility is almost always good. Half of them can be approached by car, getting to the other half is nevertheless a small exercise in walking. In some extreme cases, access is somewhat difficult or tortuous. Although these are counted on the fingers of one hand.
At the end of the most recondite and hidden beaches is opposed in this case a dozen beaches that for their proximity to the urban core of the capital of the municipality, or also to nearby villas with a great tourist tradition, such as Celorio, Member or Poo, enjoy a magical atmosphere in summer season. The beach of this last town is excellent for the bath of the smallest ones, since at high tide it seems more like an infinity pool than a piece of the Cantabrian sea.
As in a good restaurant, where there is a wide menu for the gourmet, in Llanes there are beaches for all tastes and it is very difficult for one to stay without eating or eat for lunch.Text: © Ramón Molleda for desdeasturias.com
