A Pobra do Caramiñal

A harbour in A Pobra do Caramiñal

A Pobra do Caramiñal is a town and municipality at the entrance of one of the lower bays of the Galician coastline known as the "Ria de Arousa" in the province of A Coruña. It is located in the autonomous community of Galicia. A Pobra do Caramiñal belongs to the comarca of A Barbanza. It is the next stop out of the ria (bay or more apropos 'fjord') after Boiro and is famous for its unusual festival procession in September. A Pobra do Caramiñal features a large harbor with docs for commercial and leisure craft, the Alameda, the Old Town, and a popular beach.

A Pobra do Caraminal’s harbour

Most tourist guides to this area discuss the fishing heritage of "Ribeira," a few kilometers away, but only mention A Pobra do Caramiñal in passing. However, the main commercial port of Ribeira is closed to the public, while its smaller equivalent at A Pobra is open to the public. Fishing boats on display range from dinghy-sized dornas to industrial sized fishing boats moored up at a quay that extends into the bay.

A new footpath runs the length of the harbor and parallel to the beach, leading to the second section of the port. Here are yachts, speedboats, and other non-commercial craft. Two beaches in A Pobra now fly the blue flag of the EU.
