Estaño Beach

A bathe in a natural pool carved into the rock

Small, with dark sand and shaped like an isthmus. That's Estaño Beach, a semi-urban cove just five kilometres from Gijón. With good amentiies and a heavy swell, bathing is advisable on the left-hand side of the beach, although you must take care because of its rocky bottom.

The Pozo del Cura (The Priest's Pool), a natural pool carved into the rock, is a noteworthy feature of Estaño Beach. Moreover, at its western end is the small islet of La Tortuga. It is a very suitable beach for scuba diving and spearfishing.


It has vegetation and is a protected area
