h2>Make a holiday apartment in Cangas your home away from home

For superb access to some of Galicia's most inspiring coastal scenery have a look at our list of Cangas holiday apartments. This town is the point of embarkation for trips to the Cies Islands, long celebrated for their dreamlike beaches and transparent waters. At a holiday home in Cangas you'll have a choice of almost 40 beaches to visit in this area alone, from well-appointed urban beaches to dramatic, unfrequented bays set within natural parks. Cangas holiday homes tend to be upmarket and many rentals here can cater to large groups. Interiors boast stylish design and offer modern kitchen, bathroom and entertainment facilities.

Things to do

-Local history. From the 1800s right up to the 1980s, whaling was an important part of the town's economy, but now the main sources of income are tourism and fishing. Keep an eye out for fantastic examples of Galician maritime architecture, especially in Cangas' historic zone. There are also some impressive religious monuments around the town, not least the church of Santiago de Cangas, which is from the 15th Century with both gothic and renaissance features.

-Beaches. The Cangas boasts 38 different beaches, seven of which have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for cleanliness and quality of services. One Blue Flag beach is Areamilla, found in a natural reserve, featuring clear, shallow water and white sands backed by woodland. Playa Melide is another Blue Flag choice - this beach has a magnificent location, at the very tip of Cape Home, where there's beautiful greenery and unusual rock formations.

-Water activities. The Atlantic is a big attraction here, and as Cangas escapes the full force of the Atlantic, the local waters are ideal for activities like kayaking, with a range of businesses providing rentals and organising special trips. There are also two dive centres locally, catering to newcomers and seasoned underwater adventurers.

-Atlantic Islands. Just offshore is the Atlantic Islands National Park, which is made up of several distinct archipelagos. Closest to Cangas are the Cies Islands, reachable by boat from the harbour. People come here to enjoy the immaculate beaches complete with white sands, turquoise waters and excellent facilities. You can indulge your sense of adventure by setting off on a hike through unspoiled forest and past towering cliffs, or taking a scuba lesson in the islands' crystal clear waters.

-Cuisine. Galicia is vaunted for the exceptional freshness of its fish and seafood, which comes straight from the Atlantic to the table. More of this produce passes through Galicia's ports than in any other part of Spain. Dishes here are simple to allow the freshness of the seafood to stand out - the Vieira sea scallop for instance is normally accompanied by a simple squeeze of lemon juice, while octopus tends to be seasoned with a little salt and paprika.

Weather in Cangas

Cangas holiday rentals are located in a humid-oceanic climate zone, where mild weather is in store for most of the year. Winter days get highs in the mid-teens, while lows tend to stay well above freezing. This time of year is known for its damp weather, with a great deal of the annual rainfall taking place from December to March. Summers are pleasant here, free of the extreme highs known in other parts of the country. On a normal day in July there's partial cloud cover and temperatures that push the mid-20s. A little rain is to be expected, but it's much less common in summer.

Travel to Cangas

The closest airport to holiday apartments in Cangas is Vigo-Peinador (VGO), although this destination only handles traffic from within Spain. You can get here by flying to Madrid or Barcelona and transferring. Perhaps more convenient is to fly direct from Britain to Santiago de Compostela (SCQ), which has a few connections to Britain. It's just over an hour from there to the town of Cangas, if you follow the AP-9 toll road down towards Vigo.

An amazing week at this property. The owners have thought of everything to make this home from home.

5 of 5
The house has been beautifully restored and the owners have thought of everything to make this a fabulous place for families. The well equipped kitchen and fabulous courtyard and common area make this a great place to stay if you are foodies and like to cook at the villa. The house is hidden in a beautiful part of Galicia. The whole peninsula has lots of lovely beaches to explore. We would definitely recommend the villa and location if you like to holiday off the beaten track. Thank you Dominique for a very memorable holiday!
