  • In my opinion, the best beach in the area. I'd much rather before Silgar for example. Water crystal, they are fish

  • Beach overlooking the entrance of the ria de pontevedra. It has all the Services hotels, bars and restaurants and a parking with many shadow area. This quite inclined to walk, you can take shells and conches. Is of sand white but the water is very cold as all the of the Atlantic. Is of waters mansas since this protected and has an area of shadows for make picnic if it want to. Is a beach ideal to go with children.
