    "Q" for Tourism Quality, a mark that represents quality in Spain’s tourism sector.


This crescent-shaped beach is the largest, most historic and emblematic in Gijón. It is located within the city itself, very near the centre. It is separated from Poniente beach by the Cimadevilla neighbourhood. It is bordered by a very busy promenade known as El Muro, which is almost three kilometres long and goes from the church of San Pedro to Mayán de Tierra, passing the mouth of the Piles river. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy surfing, sea kayaking and windsurfing. It is also equipped to play beach volleyball and beach football.
