The Bizarre Beach of Gulpiyuri

Gulpiyuri beach is near Llanes in Spain. It's a stunning place to build memories, as pictures don't do it justice. And there's one thing very different about it.

Gulpiyuri’s name isn’t its only bizarre facet: this beach is found completely inland, in a gorgeous little cove which looks like something out of a fantasy. I kept expecting to see Christopher Atkins and Brooke Shields  rolling around on the sand, making out. The Cantabrian Sea bored through the earth to create this sandy spot, and though you can’t see the ocean, its waves to lap the shore just like any beach — it’s odd, like a magical wave pool.

wow. imagine being the first people to come upon this beautiful place...i wonder how often it's empty - like in the photos. does anyone know if tourists descend on it? hopefully it's far enough out of the way to go unspoiled by people for as long as possible.
