Live Beach Webcam in Asturias
More info: The Salinas beach is one of the most popular tourist beaches in Asturias, and also one of the largest. Although it is in itself 1,200 metres long, it is also connected to San Juan Beach. Together they comprise three kilometres of dunes with golden sand for walking, surfing or enjoying a swim in their waters, which have a moderate swell.
One of the best and most popular surfing beaches stretches from Salinas Beach to Playa El Espartal. Salinas beach hosts a Long Board Festival every July. It has been organised for over 15 years and is one of the largest surf festivals in Europe.
Located on the Western side at the end of the long promenade is a rocky promontory which is home to the unusual Anchors Museum which displays lots of anchors that were used on real ships. There is also a lookout point with views of the coastline of Castrillón and a bust of Philippe Cousteau attached to one of the rocks - all forming a tribute to the sea offered by the people of Castrillón.
Asturias has a mountainous setting and is bordered to the east by Cantabria, to the south by Castile and León, to the west by Galicia and to the north by the Bay of Biscay. With its maritime climate, influenced by the gulf stream, Asturias has warm winters and - compared to the rest of Spain – mild summers.
