Coves in Sanxenxo
Cala de La Lanzada
This is a small creek next to the famous Chapel of the Spear, called Beach of the Spear. It is divided in two by rocks. The sand is white and fine on the one side of the rocks and coarse and dark on the other. A rite of fertility of the nine waves is performed here on the last Sunday of August by women ve want to become pregnant. It is a tiny beach with a length of only 50 meters. It is windy and also has a strong swell. Very close to this beach are the remains of a fortress and an ancient spring. The beach is beautiful and it offers good parking plus rubbish bins. To reach it, take the C-550 from Sanxenxo direction Grove, take a small dirt road, park and go down the wooden stairs.

Foxos Beach
Foxos beach is one of my favorites, it is a straight line and is in a rural setting a few miles from Portonovo, just where is there is the popular shrine of Nosa Señora da Lanzada on the right bank. Pass the chapel then Areas Gordos beach, Foxos has fine white sand posing on top of a series of small sand dunes that have various beach accesses. It's an open beach with strong waves, but the clear waters invite you to swim. It is about 350 meters long and in summer gets quite busy, although not the most crowded, it is usually pretty quiet. Surrounded by hotels and apartments it also offers services such as snack bar, showers and usually as almost all these beaches are blue flag.
