San Lorenzo beach, Gijón, Asturias

The Bay of Gijón, where you find the San Lorenzo beach, is one of the most beautiful in the north of Spain and definitely the most visited.

San Lorenzo is a long urban beach (1.5km long) surrounded by a wide promenade and a string of hotels, bars, restaurants and shops.

You will often hear people saying things like “let’s meet at Stair no 11″ and that is because you need to climb down to the beach (it’s surrounded by a stoned wall to protect the city during stormy days) and stairs are built in lots of places for tourists to do so. In fact the beach extends from “stair no 0″ to “stair no 12″ with lifeguards placed at 3 of them so they could cover the entire beach. You can see such stairs in the picture below.
