Watched over by three lighthouses, Melide Beach is truly a dream. Located in Pontevedra, Galicia, Melide isn’t frequently visited by tourists. If you’re looking for seclusion, look no further. The only people you'll see here are a few local surfers coming to ride the waves.
The views are stunning from Ribadesella beach in Asturias. The beautiful rock formations cause the waves in this area to be quite large, which makes it ideal for those who are looking to kayak or surf. The luscious greenery surrounding the beach gives it a unique feel compared to many of Spain's other popular beaches.
Viveiro beach in Galicia is a great starting point for those looking to hit a few secluded beaches on the North coast of Spain. This is a common vacation destination for the Spanish, famous for the Atlantic scenery and white sandy beaches. There are countless smaller, secluded beaches within an hour of Viveiro, and we guarantee the vibes in this region are worth traveling for.
Playa En Bollullo in Tenerife is truly a slice of paradise. The soft, black, volcanic sand makes it all the more enchanting. If you are trying to find an escape from the popular Playa de Las Vistas, take a quick trip to Playa En Bollullo. When you arrive, walk down the stairway to reach the beautiful moon shaped beach, and be sure to bring a beach umbrella, as the black sand can get quite hot!
One of Europe's best windsurfing locations, Playa Barca hosts the Windsurf World Cup each summer. This beach on the island of Fuerteventura is also great for a family day with calm waters that are ideal for relaxation. It seems to go on forever, so don’t worry about finding a good spot to spend the day.
