A slightly salted sandy river beach with wide grassy banks. Sheltered from the coastal breeze but not far inland from the mouth of the Mino. Picnic on the sand or under the trees for shade and enjoy the views of Portugal. Local families relax there on Sundays and public holidays - you will probably have it to yourself the rest of the time.

The province of Pontevedra is full of various legends related with different characters: from witches to werewolfs or "mouras".
Most of these legends come from the inlands, telling us magic stories that, sometimes, will scare us and others will fascinate us. For example, there are legends related with petroglyphs where women went to conceive babies, or with the "mouras" (bewitched, very beautiful character) who appeared to men who felt in love with them.
There are also legends in the coast, so some women went to a specific beach to get pregnant.
There are many others, do not hesitate to look for them. There is a magic world beyond our own.
The province of Pontevedra is full of interesting villages with castles, monasteries, natural reserves, Celtic settlements, spectacular viewpoints, and much more. If you have the intention of spending your holidays there, I recommend you rent a car to go from one village to another.
Sometimes it is a little bit difficult to find the right place, but don't worry, take a good road map with you and everything will be OK.
I think that's better than going by bus, because the bus connections aren't very good and you'll spend more time in the bus than visiting nice places.
The airport of this province is the airport of Vigo.
I think that the best way of enjoying the province of Pontevedra is through nature. The sea is one of its best characteristics due to its varied and rich seabed.
Two months ago, I had two friends who came here for diving and they were surprised with the beauty of the waters. They said it was incredible and amazing.
