Ribadedeva (Eastern Asturias)
La Franca Beach

A tourist tradition inherited from the 19th century

Located at the mouth of the River Cabra, it forms the coastal boundary between Llanes and Ribadedeva. La Franca is a triangular-shaped beach of white sand, with a moderate swell, located in a semi-urban setting offering all kinds of amenities. At low tide, it connects with other coves such as El Oso, El Viveru and Regorgueru.

It is easy to access, which means it is much frequented, though not usually overcrowded. It has a long-standing tourist tradition going back to the 19th century, when it boasted a seaside spa.

El Castrón Islet, a safe haven frequented by seagulls, is located off the centre of the beach.
