Ascend from the parking place (5 m) to the whale statute and
continue along the street to the corner of "Casa de Pescador", where
you turn left to the Rua Emilio Gonzáles. At the next corner, turn
right by a statute to the Rua de Xose, which leads to the
boulevard Rua Praia next to the beach. Continue along the Rua Praia to the left (6min)
When the walkway along the beach of
Area Maior ends (13min) (10 m),
you continue along a stone paved walkway. After a couple of minutes
you pass a fountain and the pavement ends. You walk towards the cape
When the walkway forks above the cove of Portiño (29min) (25 m),
keep right and take the steps down to a wooden walkway, which goes
round the recreation area. After a fountain you cross a small bridge
and continue along the walkway (34min) (5 m).
The gently ascending walkway opens up fine views over the beach
of Seaia and of the cape before you reach the beautiful fountain
of Navenllos (42min) (40 m).
Higher up you enjoy the view over the cove to the village of
Malpica. The walkway passes another fountain (52min) (50 m) and
continues close to the coast line to a lookout spot (55min) (70 m)
revealing the islands of Sisargas.
The walkway continues to the hermitage of San Hadrián and the
sanctuary of San Adrian del Mar (58min) (75 m). From there you take
an asphalt road to the left. At the junction, turn right (1h01min)
Later you branch off right to a track (1h07min) (135 m). It turns
into a path that goes to the cape of Santo Hadrián. In addition to
the Sisargas islands you have a lovely sea view. The path turns
into a track, which leads to the tip of the cape (1h23min) (20 m).
From the cliffs you look out to the rocky coast line. The islands of
Sisargas are now so close that you can see clearly the lighthouse of
the largest island.
Return on the same way back to the harbour of Malpica (2h50min).
