The smallest beach in the world is found in Spain – but it's in a very weird location | The Sun

THE SMALLEST beach in the world can be found just a few hours from the UK – although it's not where you'd expect.

Playa de Gulpiyuri is found in northern Spain – but bizarrely, it's not on the coastline.

The word "Gulpiyuri" means "water circle" in Spanish, and it is named due to its location.

The tiny beach is actually inland, found in the middle of a park.

It has no direct access to the sea, and the saltwater comes in from the sea via the cliffs.

A series of tunnels created by the saltwater allows the water to come in and out with the tide from the Bay of Biscay.

The 40 metre stretch of white sand is visible during low tide, but if you also want to see the water you will have to visit during high tide.

Its strange location also means it is quieter than Spain's other beaches as you can only access it on foot.

It's also great for kids as the water never gets deeper than knee-height so it is ideal for splashing around.

The beach has even been deemed a Natural Monument as part of the Regional Network of Protected Natural Areas.
