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).
For the second access, from local highway route AS-256 take the turnoff to the town of Argüero. Follow the signs to the beach down a narrow but paved road until it turns into a dirt road that goes down to the beach.
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.
