Spain Playa De Roda

Playa de Roda

Tips from the community

Just off the shore of Galicia lies the powder-white sand and azure waters found across the Cíes Islands. While Spanish beaches typically have the feel of the Mediterranean Sea, the northwestern Galicia sits just north of Portugal on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, making for a different experience completely. As the point of connection for the islands of Monteagudo and Faro, the tranquil Playa de Rodas beach is where locals come to spend lazy summer days under the sun surrounded by pine trees and idyllic scenery — the ideal setting for those whose idea of a beach vacation involves a great book. The beach has a string of seafood restaurants and bars nearby where, from sangria to tequila to beer, you can find the perfect reading companion of your choice.
