Tourist information offices located near the sea

11 September, 2014

I am trying to gather here information about all the tourism offices you can visit if you happen to spend your vacation at the beach but I have to warn you that I gathered the information below during the summer of 2013 and it might not be 100% accurate in the near future. I’ll do my best to keep this updated, I don’t promise 馃檪

Tourist information office in Colombres, Ribadedeva

Located at Plaza Manuel Ib谩帽ez y Posada, Colombres. Open from January 2nd to September 30th.

Tourist information office in Llanes

Llanes used to have 2 such offices, one in the city center and one where the public library is but I believe the one in the center was closed so if you need information go to Calle Posada Herrera 15.

During the summer months it’s open from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 9pm (Monday to Sunday) and during the winter months from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 6.30pm (Monday to Saturday) and from 10am to 2 pm on Sundays.

Tourist information office in Ribadesella

It’s located right in the Sella estuary, near the bridge that will take you to the Santa Marina beach, on Calle Marques de Arguelles. (click to see it in Google maps)

During the summer months it’s open every day from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 8pm. During the winter months it’s closed on Mondays and open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 6.30pm and only in the morning on Sundays (10am to 2pm).

Tourist information office in Caravia

Caravia is a very small village so the tourism office is a “horreo” build right along the main road, on Carretera General

During the summer months (July and August only) it should be open from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 9pm (all days except on Mondays) but in case you find it closed (very probable, we found it closed) you will have to go to Colunga and ask for information. It’s closed the rest of the year.

Tourist information office in Colunga

Colunga, like Caravia, is a small village so you’ll have no problems finding the tourist information office if you stay on the main road that crosses the village and look for the church. The address is El Parque (click to see in Google Maps).

It’s open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12pm to 2pm and from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. Not much, I’m afraid.

Tourist information office in Lastres

It’s not so easy to find, you might wanna search for Calle Reloj or stay on AS-257, the main road that goes from Colunga to Llastres – click to see it in Google Maps.

It’s only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 12pm to 2pm and from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. Sorry about that 馃檪

Tourist information office in Villaviciosa

It’s not very hard to find, but for us was very easy to miss so you might want to keep your eyes open 馃檪 It’s an old building located on Calle del Sol.

During the summer months it’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and the remaining days it’s open from 10.20am to 2pm and from 4pm to 7.30pm. Regarding the winter timetable I am not so sure, they say it’s the same but closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Tourist information office in Gij贸n

Gij贸n has 2 tourism information offices and they are not located far away one from each other. First one is located exactly in front of the San Lorenzo beach near the stair number 4. It’s open from 10am to 8pm every day but during the summer months it gets extended to 10pm.

The second office is near the Marina, at Calle Rodriguez San Pedro and the timetable is almost the same: 10am-8pm during the winter months and gets extended to 9pm during the summer months.

Tourist information office in Luanco and Cape Pe帽as

I am not very sure about this, the information office in Luanco is pretty hidden and difficult to find: it’s located at the end of Calle Ram贸n P茅rez de Ayala but when I got there I found out that during the summer months it was only open in the morning, from 10.30am to 2pm and they were more available at a nearby office at Cape Pe帽as where they were open from 10.30am to 2pm and in the afternoon from 5pm to 9pm. But I cannot find more information regarding their winter timetable since their website is lacking this “detail” 馃檪

Tourist information office in Cand谩s

This one is tricky, we found one under construction at Calle Doctor Braulio Busto no 2 but apparently the real office is hidden in a place I could not find. The city hall’s website says the office is open from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 7 pm during the winter months (Thursdays and Sundays is closed). In the summer it’s open 7 days a week, from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 8pm. This one is a mystery to me 馃檨

Tourist information office in Avil茅s

It’s located at Calle Ruiz G贸mez no 21 and it’s open from 10am to 8pm everyday during the summer months and from 9am to 2pm and from 4.30pm to 6.30pm during the winter months (Saturdays and Sundays the office is closed).

Tourist information office in San Juan de la Arena

It’s located right in the port of San Juan de la Arena, at Calle Bajamar and it’s open from Monday to Saturday from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm to 7pm. On Sundays and bank holidays it is open only in the morning, from 12pm to 2pm.

Tourist information office in San Esteban de Pravia

It is located on the Paseo Maritimo Marq Santulla (I believe the street name is Calle Su谩rez Incl谩n) and it’s open only during weekends and only during the summer months (June 22nd to September 22nd). On Saturdays it’s open in the afternoon, from 4.30pm to 8pm and on Sundays only in the morning, from 11am to 2pm.

Tourist information office in Muros de Nal贸n

This one is, again, located in a “horreo” and it’s quite easy to spot being right in the park at Avenida Galicia. I believe it’s open only during the summer months, from 11am to 2pm and from 4.30pm to 8pm during weekdays and only in the morning (11am to 2pm) on Saturdays. On Sundays and Mondays this office remains closed.

Tourist information office in Cudillero

It’s located right in the port of Cudillero (click to see it in Google maps).

From October to May it’s open from 10am-2pm and from 4pm-7pm (Monday to Saturday) and from 11am till 2pm on Sundays.

In June it’s open 10am-2pm and 4pm-8pm during weekdays and from 11am till 2pm on Sundays.

During the summer months the timetable is: 10am – 9pm, Monday to Sunday.

Tourist information office in Luarca

It’s located in the center of the village, right in front of Plaza Alfonso X el Sabio in a building called Palacio del Marqu茅s de Gamoneda. During the summer it’s open from 10.30am to 1.45pm and from 4pm to 7.15pm. It is closed on Mondays and Saturdays. I do not know their winter timetable.

Tourist information office in Navia

It’s a glass building, easy to find, located at Avenida de la D谩rsena no 2. The timetable is a little weird, are you ready?

On Mondays and Tuesdays from 10am to 5pm. From Wednesdays to Fridays from 10am to 2pm. On Saturdays and Sundays the office is closed.

Tourist information office in El Franco

It’s located in cultural complex called “As Quintas” in La Carridad. The timetable is a bit weird, here we go:

Mondays and Thursdays: from 9.30pm to 2.30pm and from 4pm to 7pm.
Tuesdays: from from 9.30pm to 2.30pm.
Wednesdays: from 5pm to 8pm.
Fridays: from 12.30pm o 2.30pm and from 4pm to 7pm. I supposed it’s closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tourist information office in Tapia de Casariego

It wasn’t easy for us to find this one, the address is Plaza del mercado no 1 and it’s open during weekdays from 10am to 2pm and from 5pm to 8pm. closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tourist information office in Castropol

During the winter you can go and ask for information an the city hall of Castropol between 8am and 3pm. During the summer months the office is located at Calle La Fuerte 15, where the police office is. It’s open from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm to 7pm (closed on Tuesdays).

Did I forget any tourist information office? Let me know.
