La Costa de los Dinosaurios

Merón Beach

Merón beach has two accesses. For the first, from local highway route AS-256 take the turnoff to the town of Careñes.

We leave the car in Careñes and pick up a dirt road that leaves from the town church and heads downhill towards the beach (900 m).

Once at the Merón beach, head west along the base of the sea cliffs for about 600 m until you arrive at a sandstone bed of the Lastres formation which is nearly horizontal. A trackway from a quadrupedal dinosaur, formed by 12 consecutive prints of the hindfoot and forefoot, crosses the surface of this bed. A few dispersed tridactyl prints from a bipedal dinosaur also occur in this bed.
