Here we detail some of them that we highlight for being special: for their type of sand, for the presence of dunes, for the quality of their waters, for their natural environment or their urban idiosyncrasy, for being dynamic and populous or for the complete opposite. due to their isolated and hidden character, because they are integrated into protected landscapes, because they are ideal for surfing or more suitable for bathing.

Normally, the most cited and shared beaches in Asturias stand out for one or more of these reasons.
