Lovely town with lovely beaches and marina well worth a visit. Free 20 minute shuttle from port to the town centre. Drinks , cakes and tapas at a reasonable price cheaper than other ports we have visited.
We took the shuttle bus into town. $10 each and good value. The town was lovely filled with nice shops and cafes. A nice beach too. Very enjoyable!!

A sure spot for us to revisit. We again went outside the city to the countryside and loved every mile.

Would probably be a great port if the departure time was later. None of the restaurants, museums or bars open till about 12:30pm. Boat departs port at 1pm. Might as well have skipped the port and taken a sea day

We took an excursion to Aviles and Luanco. It was good to see a bit of the countryside in the journey but not much of note in Aviles. Luanco was a really pretty fishing village and we could have spent longer there and skipped Aviles.
Not impressed at this port as we got off wanting to go for a walk to be told that we had no choice but pay 10 euros each for a bus into town. We did not want to go into town, we simply wanted to leave the port for a walk but there is no option to do this, consequently we got back on the boat as we weren't going to pay a fee for the privilege of going for a walk. Royal Caribbean seem to pick and choose when they charge this 10 euro fee as we spoke to cruisers who said the bus had been free last year. Rip off of the highest degree!
