  • A stroll along the beach is spectacular no matter if it is with rain or Sun. We love to go to Gijón and stroll through its spectacular beach.

  • The days I spent there was bad weather. Even so, it is worth walking along the promenade. In the times of high tide, with the raging sea, it is impressive to see the waves struggle to climb to the promenade. Very different from the Mediterranean, to which I am accustomed.

  • Great, wide open beach. Great place for a day of sun and sea. Warning for children: clothing seems to be optional.

  • Beautiful beach in the city of Gijón. Fine, very clean, sand for my taste a little lumpy (prefer the beaches where you sink a little bit). Good service for surveillance and rescue. Room for improvement: public toilets and showers.
