“Lovely Beach”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

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.

“Peace and beauty”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Sanxenxo out of season is tranquil, peaceful and has a quietness that often eludes Spain.
We stayed in a small namely between sanxenxo and com barro. Our view was of the river estuary and all around are tiny beaches and woodland and lush greenery.
From our balcony we saw dolphins playing in the estuary, diving in and out of the Barras, where the fishermen work their seafood stocks. If you want a quiet break before the summer starts this is the place. The weather was wonderful, but we were lucky. Try it, it's worth the drive. Prices are very good this time of year too. The food is not bad and the people are very proud of their wines, in three weeks we did not hear one English voice. It is a land that stands still in time, until next month.

“it's okay for 3 days not any longer”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

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.
