From Catoira up to the mouth of the river Miño on the border with Portugal, the Galician coast softens to reveal the wonderful landscape of the Rias Baixas. This is the part of Galicia most popular with tourists, thanks to the mild climate, quiet sheltered beaches and a wealth of unsurpassed cuisine, where seafood is top of the menu.
The most spectacular scenery is offered in the Atlantic Isles National Park, one of the great natural reserves of the Iberian Peninsula. Facing them is another landscape of great ecological value: the Corrubedo dunes at the foot of the famous lighthouse. Around the estuaries - Muros, Noia, Arousa, Pontevedra, Vigo - merge towns with a seafaring tradition such as O Grove, wine-producing towns such as Cambados and O Rosal, beaches with icy waters like A Lanzada, spa islands including A Toxa, and cities such as bustling Vigo and noble Pontevedra.
