Coastal Walk around Cabo Udra (Udra Cape) Nature Park in Bueu, Rias Baixas, Galicia

9 Sep

It was a nice sunny Sunday morning so I decided to take a walk around one of my favorite spots of the Rias Baixas... Cabo Udra or Udra Cape in English a small peninsula in Bueu on the O Morrazo Peninsula. A great place walking trails and taking photos of the Cies Islands and Ons Islands at the front of the bays of Aldan, Vigo and Pontevedra which are also a nature park called Islas Atlánticas National Park. An excellent vantage point to enjoy the picturesque scenery of the Rias Baixas. Come with us and visit Galicia’s Rias Baixas coast.
