PLAYA DE POO Beach

This Asturian beach has an odd beauty. Located next to the Vallina river outlet, the beach is shaped like a funnel, and surrounded by green hills, making it so that the ocean isn’t visible from the beach during the low tide.

The water that filters inland and bathes this unusual beach is calm and has hardly any waves, making it ideal for families with kids. This beach is quite popular, so you better wake up early to get a nice spot.
