Beach of the Ñora

Ñora, a beach to admire

The Ñora is one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches of the Asturian coast, a sandy area with a triangular plan which extends over a surface of 7.500 square meters-covered entirely during the phases of high tide. It is located at the mouth of the homonymous stream, whose course delimits the councils of Gijón and Villaviciosa and that we can follow on foot from the area of ​​Deva, in Gijón, to the beach itself, on a highly recommended excursion through the lush landscape of this fluvial course.

The beach is surrounded by a rugged environment and several are nearby where we can take height and see the idyllic picture of this beach: that enters, between the soft cliffs and the green of the meadows, like a warm orange wedge .

From the Ñora there is a path that leads us to a nearby lookout, a natural battlement from which the perspective of the beach acquires greater notoriety and beauty. The same happens with the coastline that continues to the East and West.

On clear days, from this viewpoint, we will clearly appreciate the profiles of a coastal stretch that includes two of the most outstanding capes of the Principality: Cape San Lorenzo and Cape Peñas.

The beach is 250 meters long and is made up of sand, rocky outcrops and blocks, which gives it a certain geological mix that makes it more attractive.
