  • The beach of san Lorenzo is one of the beaches most clean, is very good for walking through it. It is a dignified promenade to walk while you hear the noise of those waves that at least my me relax. You always have people although it is not summer, people do sport or stroll. For my authentic.

  • I live in Gijón, but I'm objective to say that San Lorenzo is one of the emblems of the city. It is wide, 1.5 Km, although with the rise of the tide sometimes remains us small. Recognized with the flag "Ecoplayas" and the Q for tourist quality, is an ideal place to enjoy a sunny day or simply strolling through the sand or by the ride of the wall any day. It never disappoints.

  • For me the best beach of the three that are in Gijón city because it was not made artificially. That brings its disadvantages, e.g., there is little gap during high tide or the storms of winter are carried the sand of middle Beach and even part of the ride. But still have a good space and take your ride from end to end is great anytime of the year
