Rodiles Beach in Villaviciosa has extensive sand banks which join at the estuary complex forming a barrier which closes it. The Villaviciosa estuary is ecologically and in terms of landscape a very valuable natural space, declared a Partial Nature Reserve. Rodiles Beach, within the Partial Natural Reserve of the Ria of Villaviciosa, is a very popular beach on its right-hand side.
Colunga has an enormous beach called La Griega. There we find, very well sign-posted, one of the most important Jurassic discoveries, the footprints that were discovered before any others. These are the largest sauropod prints in the world. Lastres, a typical Asturian fishing village where it's well worth stopping to taste the local cuisine, is situated near Colunga, at 2 km. from La Griega.
The Town of Ribadesella has a long beach, the beach of Santa Marina. In addition to its very fine sand, the seaside promenade and views from the surrounding area are there to be enjoyed. The mouth of the River Sella and the port with its traditional fish market are on the left hand side of the beach.
Various remains of dinosaur footprints (icnites) are located at the western end of the promenade.
