The smallest beaches in Spain


We all like to see and visit beaches very large in which to be able to enjoy some privacy despite the fact that there are many people, in addition to the fact that almost all have many services and we can have everything we need to enjoy a day at the beach without missing anything. But from time to time, we all also like to visit smaller, more intimate beaches, in order to enjoy greater tranquility or solitude.

In our country there are a large number of small beaches that are equally spectacular and worth visiting, especially if you are looking for privacy. Today I would like to show you some of the smallest beaches in Spain, in which you will surely find a perfect corner to spend a day of rest:

Gulpiyuri Beach


It's in Asturias, specifically in a municipality called ship, and it has spectacular natural beauty thanks to its vegetation and rocks, among other things. It is only 50 meters long and you can go nude. It is a beach that especially visits those who live in the area, but there are usually hardly any people on it. It is surrounded by limestone rocks and was created in the interior since erosion caused a small tunnel to be created and a cave that sank and the beach appeared.

Meñakoz Beach


It's in Barrika, Biscay, and it is 270 meters long and only 30 wide, so there is not much room for people but it is not a problem since it does not have much influx. It is also nudist and is protected by rocks and somewhat isolated. It does not have any type of service but it is sure that you will find tranquility all over the world.


Cantarrijan beach


It's in Almuñécar (Granada) and is also a nudist. It is 380 meters long and 48 meters wide, it has a couple of leisure services and a somewhat complicated access but that makes it very quiet. It is dark sand and gravel, but its waters are very calm and not very cold.

La Viborillas Beach


It's in Benalmadena (Malaga) and is also a nudist, without a promenade and with very few services. It is 350 meters long and 15 meters wide, and is very beautiful as it is protected with vegetation. This beach does tend to be quite busy, so you may not find all the tranquility that you would find in the others.

La Rijana Beach


It's in Pomegranate and it has very little influx of public. It is of dark sand and calm sea, without any services and very isolated, perfect to enjoy privacy and tranquility. It is 250 meters long and 20 meters wide.

Maro Beach


It's in Nerja, in the province of Malaga, and is 500 meters long and only 20 meters wide. Its appearance is wild and it is of dark sand, with moderate waves that are sometimes somewhat strong. There are not usually many people.
