22 March - 29 March 2017

PDF this page

From Andalusia to Galicia. Embark in a lively Cadiz and sail the Eye of the Wind up the Atlantic coast of Portugal until you reach Spanish A Coruña. This tour is discounted, because you’ll be sailing day and night at some point and won’t have that many stops in port, so if you’re looking for the maximum sailing time, this is the journey for you! Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

The oldest city in Spain, with a wealth of historic landmarks. Water is never far away, as the old town is built on a narrow stretch of land jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea. Get lost in the Old town with its many narrow, winding streets and visit one of the many parks that dot the city. Its many cathedrals and plazas are also well worth a visit. Go to La Caleta beach, at La Viña, the old fisherman quarter. Go catch a Flamenco concert and feast your taste buds with the fresh sea foods.

A Coruña is a port town in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse that has been in operation for 1.800 years! The town itself is an affluent commercial and tourism hub, with plenty of things to see and do. Visit the popular beaches, explore the city centre, or sample some of the many cultural activities. The Aquarium Finisterrae lets you explore the marine life of the region. But if you prefer your fish on a plate, A Coruña’s restaurants can help you out.
