Great location, delicious food and water is refreshing. Rocks are easy to climb and suntan on, waves are small enough for children to play in

A very lovely safe sheltered beach, with pine trees behind for shade. Clean white sand (a bit coarse). There a small hut and gazebo serving food and drinks so perfect for lunch too. Water is very cold !!

The beach is beautiful with nice white sand and transparent waters, but, as always in Galicia we suppose, with very cold water

small beach, not too crowded witha couple of chiringuitos. Nice for kids. The beach has showers and the sea water is not too cold compared to the other side of the o grove peninsula.

Clean turquoise water and nice familiar ambience. Good for children with rocks to play and climb. Could be difficult to find a place for parking.
