Laxe (Galician pronunciation: [ˈlaʃe]) is a northwestern municipality of Spain in the province of A Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia. It belongs to the comarca of Bergantiños. It is situated in the sheltered Cabanas bay area, meaning that Laxe's expansive sandy beaches are well-sheltered from Atlantic winds.

Laxe's average temperatures vary greatly, with an average winter-time high of 10-12 celsius, compared to highs of 31-33 celsius in June–July.[1]
