Poniente Beach

A beach for playing and sports in the middle of the city

Poniente Beach is an artificial beach created in the mid-90s which has become a hub of activity, especially in the summer months. Located in the marina area of ​​Gijón, it occupies an area formerly taken up by old shipyards.

Its waters, permanently flying a green flag, are ideal for water sports, especially for beginners, and for children to bathe in. It also has a children's playground right on the beach. It is usually crowded and boasts very good amenities.
