  • Guadamía Beach: on the border of the Ribadesella and Llanes councils, the Guadamía beach is a beach carved out of the rock by the sea, taking the shape of a large natural pool at high tide. The beach turns out to be a narrow and elongated channel between the cliffs and the mouth of the Guadamía River. This makes the beach protected from the attacks of the Cantabrian Sea and is one of the safest for bathing in Asturias.
