Overview

This guide covers the extensive cruising area of Galicia in the North West of Spain, where beautiful Rías provide shelter from the Atlantic in picturesque harbours and remote anchorages. History, culture and food make Galicia a unique destination that will fascinate any visitor with time for exploration. Often an intermediate stop for Atlantic crossings, the Rías are increasingly destinations for cruising holidays.

Carlos and Robert have created an extensive guide for the sailor on passage and ashore which, with the help of an innovative layout and style, is both comprehensive and easy to use.

Over 90 destinations with town plans, charts, local history and things to do. Illustrated with more than 500 photographs.
