Playa de Gulpiyuri – A Sandy Beach in the Middle of a Meadow

July 24, 2012

If the next time you go for a tranquil walk down a meadow and find yourself at a beach, it could be that you stumbled onto Gulpiyuri Beach aka Playa de Gulpiyuri. This little beach in the town of Llanes in Spain seems to appear out of nowhere, in the middle of a grassy field. It’s about 40 meters in length and it appears that there is no sea, lake, or ocean nearby.

In actuality, the beach is a connected to the Atlantic Ocean through intricate underground waterways that flow from the Bay of Biscay right into this beach-cove.
