The beach is tucked downtown with lots of restaurants nearby. It was very busy in August with most people enjoying the sun and staying out of the water.

Beautiful white sand beach located in Sanxenxo protected by the Ria of Pontevedra which makes it a very safe place for children to enjoy the ocean. There is a beautiful track to watch birds and sea life while the waves break into the rocks.

This beach is a lovely one and wasn't very busy when we were there in June. There is a convenient car park available and a very good beach bar which also served tapas.

Had a quick visit to this beach and was very happy with the choice to come here. Lovely soft sand, clean waters. Available hire of beach beds, 6€ each. Little beach bar too.

Beautiful beach, cool water, relaxing and inspiring. I was able to journal and take amazing pictures and it was easy to hike with out exhaustion since the air remained cool and the water, rocks, flowers and sky provided such great material to artistically work with.

Not extra tidy but it was off season. No litter. No bothersome venders. Just a mile of white sand and a chilly swim!!

Perfect for a morning swim, not a wild landscape, but perfectly nice if you're in the area and are looking for somewhere quieter than Sanxenxo.
