Praia do Rostro

Beach in Lires & Around

One of Galicia's most spectacular beaches, Praia do Rostro is a broad 2km stretch of unbroken sand beginning about 4km south of Lires. It's a particularly magnificent sight from the headlands at either end, with the Atlantic surf pouring in from the open ocean. Unfortunately it's not good for swimming (even if you wanted to brave its very cold waters) but it's a wonderful walk.

The Camiño dos Faros passes right along the beach, while a variant of the Camino de Santiago passes within sight of it just inland.
