Beaches, the sea and water temperature

The tide goes through a full cycle every 12 hours, more or less, making a total of two low tides and two high tides every 24 hours. There is about 4 metres difference between the low and high tides, when there is a full moon and 1.5 metres when there is a new moon

The water temperature varies between  11 ºC in winter and  19 ºC  in summer. These temperatures are subject to changes according to the presence of warmer or cooler currents in the sea.


Llanes has the greatest number of beaches of any municipality in Asturias. The beaches are situated along the 56km of coastline in the borough  of Llanes.

There are  beaches to suit every taste: near the town and well populated, out in the wilds and seldom visited, large, small, open and enclosed, sheltered or open to the weather, with or without a river, sandy, rocky etc. Year after year the beaches of Llanes are distinguished by the blue flag award.
