Praia de Samil is just outside Vigo, but it's easily accessible by local bus or car. There is a promenade, with many children's play areas, cafes and public showers. I recommend you go there during the low season, because in summer it gets too full.
Located at the tip of the Pontevedra estuary, Lanzada is known as the beach which attract many women who have not had kids to celebrate the cult of the waters and be fertilized by the ocean. This means you follow an ancient ritual of fertility: The eve of San Juan, the infertile couple should go to the "cradle of the holy" and have sex in this area that form stones beachside . Then, she should go to the beach next to the chapel and get wet "water of 9 waves" so that each of them reach the womb. They symbolize the 9 months of pregnancy which the Virgin granted to aspiring parents.
This is a unique experience without having to leave the country. Enjoy a sunset at the beach in autumn I go to the Sanxenxo area every weekend with the three most important people in my life, my husband and my two daughters. It is a charming place, even more so with the best company, which makes it definitely one of my favorite destinations ....
Bayonne is a seaside town. Most people here base their livelihoods either directly or indirectly from the and it shows. It is a city that receives a lot of tourism because of their inn, marina and beach. It has a good nightlife, especially in summer. There are many establishments which are being renovated. They celebrate the festival of the Annunciation the first weekend of August.
It is a Beautiful place with great beaches and good food. There are Trails for hiking, mountain biking, etc.. Sailing, paragliding ...

Visit Cataratas Do Toja, 10 minutes from the Galician town of Bandeira (Silleda/Pontevedra). A waterfall flows through a valley surrounded by lush vegetation, it is ideal for fresh air and hiking through stunning scenery.
We met up with some friends from Caceres in Vilanoba. We were taken to visit the area and among other places they took us to a Castro Celta which is situated on top of the mountain, a hill overlooking the valley, the Galician river and the coast. It is the perfect place to look over the surrounding environment. They say in this town there were more than 3000 people living there. Its size is impressive because it gives a clear idea of what life must have been like at that time.
The ruins of Santa Mariña Dozo, Cambados are in the upper part of the village. It is a late Gothic style temple whose construction was ordered in the mid-sixteenth century. They are within a cemetery. The conservation status of the ruins is good and the environment is right.
The village is situated on a small peninsula, connected to the mainland by an isthmus known as O Bao. The isthmus leads to the beach as well as an extensive intertidal marsh complex, Umia-O Grove, which connects it with the City of Sanxenxo. The small island of La Toja can be accessed by a bridge dating from the early twentieth century.
One of the most inviting places that I have found throughout the Spanish geography is this small town located in Galicia.
San Vicente do Mar has all the charm of any place wrapped by the sea and has all the facilities of a city. A dozen beaches and coves are spread along the road between this town and A Toxa, my favorite ones are Raeiros, la Lapa, la Barrosa, Farruco…
They are used to the human tide that arrives every summer…The town is very calm, because even though it’s flanked by popular places such as Sanxenxo and A Toda, it doesn’t receive as many visitors.
My favorite part is the possibility of eating in restaurants such as O’Farruco or Marcial and to eat seafood at a reasonable price with great quality.
The night is magical…in the Naútico you will see all kinds of people. Every day there are concerts and shows that you wouldn’t expect in such a hidden place.
If you feel like spending the perfect holiday this is a great place to do it, with thousands of activities: horse riding, karts, sailing, paintball… And there are different sleeping options: you can rent an apartment, sleep under the stars surrounded by eucalyptus and lulled by the sound of the sea.
Dear fellow travelers: come to San Vicente do Mar and see for yourselves!
It's one of the things that surprised me the most; how peaceful the cathedral was despite it being a busy time. There were no signs in the street, we just found the place. I had the opportunity to do a guided tour inside, which revealed all its secrets and history - I would definitely recommend this guided tour.
Cambados (Pontedra) Galicia. Do not miss it and visit Cambados, it is worth it. Billed as the birthplace of Alvariño its beauty will surprise you, especially at low tide. I went this summer and the atmosphere was awesome. I encourage walking and going to try the Albariño or Ribeiro sitting on any seafront terrace.
Silgar beach was the first stop on our trip. It is a beautiful sandy beach in Silgar Sanxenxo. It is surrounded by restaurants. In the center of the beach the Beach Cafe Sansenxo, with great sandwiches at good prices, can be recommended. Also see "the Madam", a statue located in the sea on the beach.
The Church is at the heart of the city surrounded by pedestrian shopping streets and bars. From there you can stroll to old town, to the city hall and walk through the park of the city of Pontevedra. The celebrations in honor of La Peregrina are held the 1st weekend of August. On these days at the Lyceum Casino is the coming-out of the ladies who want to make their debut. There are bullfights, as well.
