We drove from the Picos to Galicia and stayed for about a week in San Xenxo. It is very easy driving in this Province in differing landscapes. We liked Cambados, a pleasant and smallish village by the sea. It has a truly grand plaza. Somehow, by accident perhaps, we eventually found ourselves driving down to the seaside resort of San...

There are showers by the entrance paths. The sand is clean and nice laying on. The water here in summer is not that cold, good for even long swimming, you don't need to walk much to have neck water level.

Lovely safe beach, can get a bit busy in August (although still quiet when compared to the Med). There are a couple of nice bars along the beach where you can eat.

I have been here for about a month now for an intership I am doing with school. It's a small safe town, which I like. There's not much to do and it is pricey. Overall, I would recommend saying only a few days.
