Due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, it could be said that Valdovino does not enjoy extreme oscillation in its weather conditions neither in winter nor in summer. The weather is mild all the year around almost as if we were talking about one only season, and that is very different from what happens in other parts of the Iberian Peninsula. Like the rest of Galicia, it is rainy and beautifully green. Still, the summers tend to be a bit drier than the winters.


  • The granite coast of Valdoviño is full of sizeable sandy beaches, a large Lagoon and a lighthouse to mark A Frouxeira Point.
