Playa de la Lanzada is one of the great Galician beaches and is a very popular. With over 3km of long white sand backed by stunning dunes, it is not to be missed. The water is very blue and clear and the sunsets to die for! Don’t forget your camera! Playa Area das Pipas has lots of rocks and tide pools which can be great fun. Backed by pine trees it is very picturesque. It can feel like you have your own private beach in places.
Millions of scallop shells adorn the beautiful little church at Ermita de San Sebastian on Isla de la Toja. It is definitely worth a visit.
The historical city of Pontevedra is a fantastic day out. The beautiful, well-preserved old town and Gothic Santa Maria la Mayor Basilica are incredible. It combines history, culture and style into a fun, lively place. The interlocking cute lanes and picturesque plazas are buzzing with shops, markets, cafes and tapas bars.
Most visitors to Galicia are interested in the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail and Santiago de Compostela. It is an interesting city with magnificent stone architecture and a famous cathedral. The skirl of bagpipes might make you think you are in Scotland. The charming restaurants and bars specialise in fine delicious Galician seafood and local wines.
