Description

El Espartal is located in the municipality of Castrillón. The beach is surrounded and protected by beautiful dunes.

It’s one of the most popular beaches in Asturias for hitting the waves thanks to its fast peaks that are surfable the whole year round.

In summer, it gets busy and the car park is usually full, so it’s best to go early if you’re traveling by car.

There are several bars and restaurants nearby to round off your surf session.
