Although details of local beaches are provided in the appropriate town or city guide for the locations in question, this page offers some more general information about Asturian beaches.
Firstly, this link will take you to a page that offers a brief description of all of the beaches in Asturias that have been awarded a blue flag Blue flag beaches.
These beaches tend to be located in or close to the main tourist hubs of the region, but there are many more lesser known beaches that are just as good if not better. However, their more remote location and lack of bathers means that they are not always recognised or promoted to the same degree.
Probably the best way to find a good beach is simply to drive down the coastal roads and take a look at each one that you see. You will always manage to find somewhere that is almost deserted on all but the busiest of days.
