Sadly we left Combarro and headed south for the next Ria. There was little bit of wind so we got a pretty decent sail in.
We anchored in one of the first bays, it was quite crowded actually. Being a weekend the beach was full of people - mostly naked people we discovered after settling in. Not because of the sights but due to the swell we reanchored closer to the headland where we hoped there would be less rolling about.

The sunset was just so beautiful especially as there was very little wind.
