  • It is pretty, but the problem of the North is that it rains a lot and is little usable for swimmers, I prefer South to go Beach

  • Gijón is together with Santander and San Sebastian of the few cities that can enjoy a pmaya of almost 3 km in the heart of the city. You can enjoy it in summer with its wave baths both in winter with this lush Cantabrian Sea that bathes it. One of the best advantages of Gijón.
