A Pobra do Caramiñal’s harbour[edit]

The harbour in A Pobra do Caramiñal is a tourist destination, the port 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 footpath runs the length of the harbor and parallel to the beach, leading to the second section of the port which contains yachts, speedboats, and other non-commercial craft. Two beaches in A Pobra flew the Blue Flag of the EU until their withdrawal in 2015 because of the lack of lifeguards.[2]
