Couldn't have picked a better hostel for the weekend. Many of the visitors were on the tail end of their several week or month long walks to Santiago de Compostela.

Yes the beach, actually the best beach in Europe - ...
... a car and headed over to Santiago. We had chosen this place as she had her about our walks and rides so we thought it would be good for her to see first hand the arrivers.
Being the nice guy that I am, I had booked her into the best hotel in town. Now the Parador here is far superior ...
