Gulpiyuri (Asturias)

Gulpiyuri beach, located on the Asturian coast, between Llanes and Ribadesella, is one of the smallest in the world, having a length of 50 meters. It is interior in nature; it has been declared a Natural Monument and has been produced due to the effect of erosion. You can only access on foot.

Rodas Beach (Pontevedra)

In the heart of the Cíes Islands on the Pontevedra coast, they are considered the Galician Caribbean. The Guardian declared it the best beach in the world in 2007 and in the newspaper poll 20 minutes it was considered the best beach in Spain for three years. You can only get to this heavenly enclave by boat.

Cathedrals beach (Lugo)

Las Catedrales beach in the Lugo town of Ribadeo is one of the most emblematic spots on the Cantabrian coast. Nicknamed for the similarity of its rocks with the flying buttresses of the Gothic cathedrals, the sandbank shows spectacular arches, the result of maritime erosion, up to 30 meters high.

Cala Macarelleta (Menorca)

Cala Macarelleta looks like a sea pool in the middle of paradise. It is a secret corner located on the Balearic island of Menorca. Its bluish waters and its minuscule size stand out, barely 20 by 40 meters. It is located in the Natural Area of Special Interest on the South Coast of Ciutadella.

Sakoneta Beach (Guipúzcoa)

The wild beach of Sakoneta is located between the towns of Zumaia and Deba and has a nudist character. It has a complicated access -access on foot after twenty minutes of walking- and in it you can see the geological phenomenon of flysch, especially at low tide. The beauty of its landscape stands out and in the proximity, in the heart of its historic center, the presence of the Church of Santa María de Deba, National Monument and jewel of the Basque Gothic.

Atlantis (Ibiza)

It is a magical and unique place in Ibiza, especially due to its association with hippie culture and the numerous human sculptures sculpted in its natural environment. The authentic name of the place is Sa Pedrera de Cala d’Hort, in reference to the old use as a quarry of the place. The dreamlike landscape is full of rock-carved fish, Buddhas, Hindu figures, and calls for peace.

Charco Verde (Lanzarote)

The Green Lake or Charco de Los Clicos is a singularity for lovers of excursions or photography. This phenomenon owes its origin to the outcrop of sea water on the surface, given the topographic uniqueness of the terrain. It is a lagoon connected to the sea by underground cracks and separated from the sea by a sandy beach. Its characteristic green hue is due to the presence of a large number of suspended plant organisms.

In fact, the place name alludes to the clicos, name of the abundant edible shellfish but extinguished by two turtles. Of course, you should know that bathing is prohibited, because the beach is located in the vicinity of the Natural Park of Los Volcanes.
