At high tide, Gulpiyuri beach in Llanes, Asturias is a wonderful place for kids and adults to take a dip.

At low tide, the beach is a great place to sunbathe but it also offers a chance to see a natural sinkhole created when a sea cave collapsed in on itself.

This one is a beauty and something people don’t see very often because Gulpiyuri is a 50 meters long (or better said round) inlet 100 meters away from the sea, the water arriving here after passing through a tunnel carved in the rock by the sea.

This area is a natural monument and thus protected so be careful to leave the place just the way you found it or even cleaner (if you wish). Being so secluded Gulpiyuri has no amenities, no parking or anything around.

It is accessible on foot only but you can leave the car outside the village of Naves or 1 000-1 500 meters away from the beach.You will also find a number of explorable caves in the immediate area making Gulpiyuri beach and it’s surroundings a “must see” for anyone visiting Asturias.
