Hi everyone!
I would greatly appreciate your suggestions for the best summer beaches in Galicia that are easily accessible by car or bus from Santiago de Compostela.

Thanks!
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
Galicia has plenty of STUNNING beaches, now, how to get there from Santiago is a different story, unless you have a car.

As Trecile suggest above, Coruña is a safe bet; as an alternative, the area near Vigo has interesting beaches too, Fisterra or Muxia, for example, have fabulous beaches too, but public transport is not easy.

The most practical option is probably Coruña by train, I guess. Anything else, you might need a car.

If you DO have a car, I have something special about La Lanzada, and if you have the time, a trip by boat to Islas Cies in the Atlantic, from Vigo, is a unique experience

Take the bus to Fisterra and make a stop in Carnota. Fantastic beach and outside of the Spanish holiday season nearly empty.
an amazing beach! the problem is, the best beaches are only accessible by car, I mean, the bus from Santiago to Fisterra, where you find unbelievable beaches, is at least a couple of hours long each way.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I'm still deciding between renting a car or taking the bus/train. I'll review all the options you've provided – your input is greatly appreciated!
