Playa de San Lorenzo Reviews
Very pretty and clean beach - the tide comes in very quickly . Easy walk into the town and bars and restaurants . Lots of swimmers and wind surfing . Sunny and warm in early October more »
It's so nice to just stroll on the boardwalk. We are here off season so no water sports for us - but just so chill and pretty with lots of bars and cafes to explore. more »
Beautiful beach with small surfable waves !
An iconic place of Gijon. A gorgeous large beach with lovely sand. Plenty of restaurants and shops near by. In summer gets crowded. It's 1 km long.
