Bay of Biscay : Playas de Barreiros

It was misty and damp again when we left Muros. Fred had a last run on the beach there and we got a pleasant surprise at the check out – only 17€ a day! There was no point in driving round the coast, we had already done some of it the day before visiting Cabo Finisterre, so we decided to head to Ferrol just north of La Caruna and then do the windy and coast road from there to our next campsite destination, Giavota on the beautiful Playas de Barreiros east of Foz.

There is not much here except 3 km of clean white sandy beach and some big waves. It has to be said that Camping Giavota is one of the nicest we have stayed on ample with very clean facilities and at this time of the year very quiet.

Fred of course loved the beach and dragged us up and down it several times. We stopped for 3 nights and got one glorious sunny day and one that was supposed to be a showery read a book day but turned out nice in the end. However the real highlight of the stay was Sue’s excellent campervan Pizzas cooked on the Cob.


Had it been forecast to be sunny we might have stayed longer but decided to move on to the Picos de Europa.
