  • 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.
