Restaurant with ocean view!

Service was good. Lots of seafood but it also has meat options. They were very accommodating with kids. Excellent view of the ocean that was a plus! Me encantó!

Excellent beach in the area of Sanxenxo (2km from the village). Well maintained beach on a daily basics with lifewatch, one of the best sands you will ever find on earth (kind of desert sand).

Great beach, especially during the week - on weekends it can be a bit crowded. Clean, white sand. The bar at the beach is great and the people who run it are wonderful. Plenty of hammocks, chairs, umbrellas to rent, as well as paddle boats.

This is a beautiful beach which is maintained every day to look perfectly pristine with golden sand. It is perfect for a daily stroll or power walk...or just a relaxing sunbathe

Really over crowded in August but lovely the rest of the year, white sand and blue sea. In the summer there is always an open "chiringito" to have a drink or something to eat.

Areas is a micro-town adjacent to the town of Sanxenxo, Spain. I come here every summer and am NEVER disappointed! It is gorgeous, the people are amazing, and the food is delicious. Even the beach is well serviced with tasteful hotels and restaurants.

Sanxenxo is a beautiful town that reminds you of famous resorts in Southern Spain and France. There is a casual elegance and high end atmosphere which only special places have. It has a beautiful beach and across from it a very extensive selection of restaurants, bars, shops, etc. We were there in mid-September so the tourist season was over but... More
