  • Pantín beach: one of the most popular beaches amongst surf enthusiasts. Located in Valdoviño, home to one of the best surf museums in the world, the Ocean Surf Museum. 
  • Perbes beach: Located in Miño, this semi-urban beach spans 540 metres in length. Its calm waters have a fairly moderate swell, perfect for a dip! What's more, this quiet beach is only crowded in high season, although it never gets distressingly busy. When you visit this beach, make sure not to miss the sunset! It will blow your mind!
  • Barrañán beach: This beach has a great swell, making it perfect for water sports. Spanning 1200 metres in length, it is the perfect beach to go for a walk and be in full contact with nature while the waves crash onto the sand.

  • Los Cristales beach: Located in Laxe, to the west of A Coruña, this is undoubtedly one of the most interesting beaches in Spain. Here, you can witness mankind's footprint on nature: as people started to throw glass onto the beach, the erosion caused by the impact of the waves has seen them break up into glass pebbles of a wide variety of colours. Bathing is prohibited here, although it is definitely a beach worth a visit on account of its intriguing glassy ground.
  • Mera beach: Just 15 km from A Coruña, meaning it tends to be quite busy. This small, very quiet beach is perfect for families. Its calm and crystal clear waters and the views over the impressive Galician landscape will take your breath away.
