Before you go check time for high water. By low water, Gylpiyuri is dry and there is nothing to see.

Basically a geological curiosity rather than a true bathing experience.

Playa de Gulpiyuri, Asturias. This rather unique beach, the smallest beach in Spain and perhaps the world, is located 100 metres away from the coast but nevertheless tidal, with a limestone ridge separating it from the ocean, from which we tool a pathway to the playa. The area is highly karstified, as a result of the excavating effects of underground water on the soluble limestone rock in the area, which provides an underground route for the water to reach this beach from the Bay of Biscay. With just 50 feet of shoreline the water does not exceed a level much more than 1 metre at high tide, the only time when the ebb and flow of water wave is present. Gulpiyuri has been declared a Natural Monument, as part of the Regional Network of Protected Natural Areas. Basically a curiosity rather than a true bathing experience.

Cozy corner
Jul 2019 • Couples
The place has its charm although one has to go in full high tide , it is not even worth to go after 2h of high tide
It’s a cozy corner of Asturias but be ready for the crowd

Worth a stop by !

Quiet beach with splendid views. You could hang out there for a while a then climb up the cliff, or even walk further down to Playa San Antonin. All of them are nice beaches to see.

Pretty, nice walk

We parked up and visited this geological curiosity - an inland beach, fed by tunnel through the cliffs.

There’s a nice little stretch of the Camino to walk eat along the coast to great views of a big sea arch too

This beach is a present from Mother Nature.
The only issue I have is that the people are going to destroy the beauty of it.
PLEASE IF YOU VISIT LOOK AFTER THE NATURAL AREA.

Worth a slight detour if you're on a roadtrip

Worth the slight detour off the highway but I wouldn't come from far and wide for it. Or make a special trip to see it.
Keep in mind that everybody ignores the signs for parking when it's not busy so just jump off the highway and park off road to walk down to it. There is 'official' parking across the highway when it's busy during the summer that you should probably abide by.

cute beach
Sep 2017 • Friends
Knowing that this beach is far away from the ocean and still has salted water, it looks amazing! We visited it on rainy day and still there were people, not sure how it looks on a sunny warm day. Nice experience, visit it, if you are somwhere around

A great place for sitting and watching the water come in through the cave. A unique landform created by sinkholes and caves.

Magic really
May 2017 • Couples
It's not well signed but it's worth the adventure!

Make sure to be there for high tide to have water, though.

We went beginning May on a rainy day, so we had it for ourselves and it was the most stunning blue green 18 degrees clear water and the swim was the most romantic swim ever.

The beautiful walks around the
Lagoon and along the sea makes this a unique excursion for all ages.
