A tiny unknown treasure in Llanes, Spain, offers a unique beach experience to visitors, providing no actual view of the ocean. Gulpiyuri Beach still has waves lapping onto its shore, thanks to underground caves that surround the shell-shaped beach. Travelers venturing to Spain this summer can book a car rental in Madrid
and cruise to the nation's northwestern edge for a one-of-a-kind coastal experience.
Tucked away in a small hollow in the middle of a meadow, the Playa de Gulpiyuri is a spectacular sight. The beach is fully tidal, with calm waves flowing in and out from underground caves completely surrounded by lush verdant plains, lending the beach a unique feel closer to an ethereal scene from a fantasy film than a real-life ocean vista.
Although the beach is situated far from the ocean, saltwater waves miraculously form, a phenomenon most likely fed by the Cantabrian Sea. The ocean waves created a series of underground tunnels that feed water into the Gulpiyuri Beach, making this one of the most magical coves in all of Spain. The water is shallow, making it an ideal swimming spot for all ages, and the perfect refresher on a hot summer day. Guests will not want to miss this unforgettable adventure during their journeys by car rental in Spain
