  • The beach is enormous but you can walk it to walk along the promenade and really enjoyed there that take care at high tide if you neglect, towels can end up in the sea.

  • San Lorenzo beach is the most famous of Gijón. With more than two kilometers it allows you to enjoy a pleasant bath and walk along the shore. It is also bordered by a manicured promenade. The less good, saturation and lack of parking.
