This port city of about 275,000 on Spain’s north coast began 3,000 years ago as a fishing village. Today it’s a departure point for regional cruises, making it busy in summer (and making us wonder what those ancient fisherman would have thought of cruise ships). The original village, Cimadevilla, with its narrow, cobblestone streets, draws many tourists, and Cerro de Santa Catalina park at the tip of Cimadevilla’s peninsula provides great coastal views.

Always one of my favorite hang out spots to chill in Gijon, Asturias (from 2012 to 2016), whenever I want to escape my city life from nearby Oviedo, especially when the Sun is up! I had some good memories in this beach, with some special people in my life. You won't go wrong, going to a nice, wide, and, "friendly" beach, if you just wanna relax, for free.

An inspiring place to visit. The top of the hill has a Chillida Monument faced to the sea where you can enjoy a privileged view of the sea, the Gijón City beach and the Musel harbour.
