Why the Gulpiyari beach in Spain is a must visit

Spain's hidden beach

Spain is renowned for its magnificent beaches that delight every tourist’s heart. In fact, your trip to Spain is incomplete if you fail to visit one of the country’s most sprawling beaches. One such beach is the Gulpiyari beach in Spain.

One such beach that should definitely be a part of your bucket list is the hidden beach of Gulpiyari. As the name suggests, it is hidden from its surroundings as it is located in the middle of a meadow in Austrias, Spain.

What makes it so special?


The beach offers a sense of calmness and serenity that adds to its uniqueness. Its rugged coastline and medieval architecture between the coasts of Llanes and Ribadesella is another factor for its popularity.

Interestingly, the beach isn’t as colossal as you would imagine other beaches to be. It is less than 50 meters in length but still manages to garner thousands of tourists who are lured by its picturesque setting where sea water can be seen gushing out from between the rocks surrounding it.

It is also one of the natural monument of Asturias.

You might be wondering where the beach receives its water from? Well, it receives its waters from the nearby Cantabrian Sea. The water enters through a tunnel that is located between the surrounding cliffs.

It is, sometimes, also referred to as the half-circle beach. Moreover, the fact is that it completely disappears when the tide is low and can be seen brimming with crystal clear water on a day that sees high tide.

 The beach is a great place for swimming as it is full of lovely waves that they tend to enjoy a lot.


A lot of people coming here comprise families who look forward to coming here in summers with their children who love bathing in this sheltered beach.
Wondering how to reach here?

There are two ways of reaching the beach. It can be reached via either a 1.6-kilometer (about one-mile) walk from Playa de San Antolin or by turning north off the A8 when in the town of Naves and walking 300 meters (about 985 feet) on foot.
