Welcome to Bares Peninsula

The road along the peninsula leaves the AC862 road at O Barqueiro, a classic fishing village where slate-roofed, white houses cascade down to the port. For an even quieter base, push north to tiny Porto de Bares, on a lovely half-moon of sand lapped by the ría's waters.

Take a walk to the panoramic Punta da Estaca de Bares at the end of the peninsula, Spain's most northerly point, and, a few kilometres southwest, enjoy the vistas from the bench known as the 'Best Bank of the World', overlooking the spectacular Acantilados de Loiba cliffs and little-known beaches such as Praia do Picón.
