  • I always like to visit this beach because one day meets the same families there, is not as crowded as Samil and few tourists are found. There is also the possibility to play volleyball. The few parking lots are the only negative...

  • Ideal to make with child. In winter it is virtually deserted and sand filled with different shells.

  • The beaches near the town of my favorites. Services, child, Green Park and arena. Nudist beach on the side which is always great if you forget the bikini or if you want to have no marks. Great arenal and clean, without algae and crystal clear waters.

  • Of the most beautiful beaches of Vigo. White Sands, crystal clear waters and a well integrated environment. The best alternative to Samil saturation, but also with a high degree occupation
