Santa Catalina Headland.

Lovely views over the headland out to sea but that's about all. Nice walk. Old army defences not open on the day we visited.

It doesnt get much better than this for a picnic spot of the wearher is warm and still, as it may grt slightly windy up here sometimes, however, ot will not be hard to find a few sheltered spots under the trees or walls.

The Catalina Headland is worth a visit. You can drive virtually to the edge of it and then walk the rest of the way. The old battery/fort on the top of the hill was interesting and well signposted. The sculpture offered very nice views of the surrounding headlands and beaches. A pleasant location.

The view from up there is great. There is the militar bunker and then the modern sculpture. There's a park for skaters. Some stairs if you decide to be adventurous.

Well worth the gentle climb, this headland provides stunning views and has a certain amount of historical interest with its nineteenth century gun emplacements.

A nice (if not windy) walk with some wonderful views. Worth a stop by. There was a play park on ten way back down which the small person with us thoroughly enjoyed Worth a visit.

Nice view of the city on a good day. Go in the center of the monument (the elogio del horizonte), you can hear the waves in a very special way.

Arrived and parked in the port. . Very cheap on road parking. The walk through the park was lovely with lots of areas for people to exercise. Skate board, exercise their animals. The view from the top was worth the walk in the heat. . GIJON is laid out before you as a panorama across the sweeping bay and beach... More

We walk to the top of that area recently and it was amazing look at the horizon. It was a hard and steep walk but it worthit.
