A getaway prized by A Coruña residents for its beach, restaurants/cafés, and nightlife.
A lovely port town just 15 minutes from A Coruña, with one of the area's most popular beaches.
Some 12 kilometres (7½ miles) out of A Coruña - barely a 15-minute drive from downtown - Santa Cristina is a small, pretty town in the township of Oleiros, famous for being a lovely place to live and for its especially fetching white-sand beach, which is particularly popular among the city's young people thanks to its calm waters and abundant water sports options. The waterfront promenade here is charming, as are the town's ample green spaces. Also well known are its restaurants and cafés with sea views, along with its nightspots, some of the province's most popular (especially on Sunday nights).
