O Grove is a typical Galician fishing port situated on the North coast of a pretty little peninsula joined to the mainland only by a narrow strip of beach and sand dunes. Overlooking the “Ria de Arousa” and the Atlantic Ocean, O Grove is a paradise for those who love the sea and the delicacies it provides.
Eating out is no problem here. There is a baffling variety of seafood and other local dishes offered in a range of establishments catering for all tastes and pockets. And afterwards, if you feel like it, bars, cafes and discos ensure a lively night life which can often continue until dawn… The town has 15,000 inhabitants and the tourists who visit the area during the summer are mainly from Spain.
If you climb the Monte Siradella, you will see for yourself how this peninsula is surrounded by the sea. So it is not surprising that even at the height of the season it is easy to find a quiet spot on one of the area’s many beautiful little sheltered beaches. And if you prefer a more lively atmosphere, the famous 3km long Lanzada beach is perfect for everything from volleyball to wind surfing.
If you want to explore, it is possible to hire bicycles for the day or week, and further afield, day trips by car or bus to the delightful city of Santiago de Compostela, to the Portuguese Peneda National Park, to the unspoilt island paradises of Ons and Cies (by boat) or to the famous “Costa de la Muerte” are perfectly feasable.
