Llanes: the land of the beaches

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.

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.

More than thirty beaches can be found on the Llanisco coastline. Each one with its own idiosyncrasy, on a coast where the sea battles daily with cliffs and other large limestone formations that dot the coves and large sandy beaches of the municipality with enormous beauty. 

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 a mistake. The latter has been declared a natural monument. If the swimmer comes at low tide, he will find only a trail of sand surrounded by rocks. But the tide rises and through the cracks of its natural enclosure it stealthily enters the water until it turns the sand into an exotic pool in the middle of the meadow.

The length of the beaches varies from 20 meters in Villanueva to 1200 in San Antolín.. The great thickness can be strictly called coves, and they do not exceed 150 meters in length, although we can also find larger ones, such as Vidiago of 200 metres, 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 practitioners of nudism, of extraordinary beauty): 500, El Portiello de San Martín: 750.

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. Bathing conditions are usually typical of calm waters in summer season, although it is not an absolute truth more than for the coves that are very collected in themselves.  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.

In this case, at the end of the most remote and hidden beaches, there are a dozen beaches that, due to their proximity to the urban center of the capital of the municipality, or also to nearby towns with a great tourist tradition, such as Celorio, Niembro or Poo, enjoy a magnificent atmosphere in the summer season. The beach of this last town is excellent for bathing the little ones, since at high tide it looks more like an infinity pool than a piece of the Cantabrian Sea..
