Castro de barona beach in a coruna

After showing you the magical Cavachos Beach, we want to continue discovering the north of Spain, although this time we are going to A Coruña, where you will find a spot that will leave no one indifferent: Castro de Boroña beach or Arealonga beach.

In the beautiful town of Porto do Son you will find this wild sandy area, 500 metres long and 50 metres wide, which is home to one of Galicia’s archaeological jewels, the Baroña hill fort, a primitive settlement and Site of Cultural Interest dating from the 1st century BC. However, this is not the only fascinating thing about this red sandy beach. Would you like to know what else this surprising spot has to offer?


Although it is not a beach recommended for travelling with family or children, it is worth a visit, especially if you are looking for an adventure destination and a wild landscape. Best of all, from time to time, dolphins come to Castro de Boroña beach to take a stroll. In summer, moreover, its clear blue waters invite you to swim.

Without services

As you can imagine, on this beach you will not find basic services such as toilets, showers or public telephones, so you will have to bring everything you need to make your stay as pleasant as possible.


As it usually happens in this coastline, in Castro de Boroña beach you will find incessant winds, a dangerous current and a strong drop when entering the water, so you should be very cautious when bathing. In addition, we recommend that you stay away from the shore only if you know how to swim very well, as the waves are very strong.
