Costa do Marisco (Shellfish coast)
The entire Galician coast is also known as the ‘Costa do Marisco’. Translated to English the ‘Shellfish coast’. Marisco clearly refers to the lovely seafood that Galicia is known for. (Read more about it on the page about the Galician gastronomy).
The entire coast of Galicia measures more than 1200 kilometers and is very divers. You’ll find white sand beaches and rocky cliffs, big cities and authentic fishing villages, idyllic islands and touristic hotspots.
The ‘Costa da Marisco’ consists of three large areas, the well known Galician coastal areas:
- Rías Baixas, the tropical Galicia
- Costa da Morte, the impressive ‘coast of death’
- Rías Altas, the Northern coast of Galicia
