puntafucinodoporco

Its official name is Punta Socastro but it is known as “O Fuciño do Porco”. This singular name, meaning pig’s snout in English, hides the cape where an impressive route is located. It runs along a wooden pedestrian walkway and offers an amazing walk between cliffs that look out over the Cantabrian Sea.

At the entrance to the Viveiro estuary, in O Vicedo, this impressive viewpoint rises above the Pereira and Area Grande beaches. We are facing a route that runs through wooden walkways with some stairs and that allows you to enjoy a spectacular landscape that ranges from Xove to Bares, providing views that will leave you speechless. The sensation of walking on these footbridges is magical because you are enjoying the area and, finally, you will be able to see the sea from a privileged situation.

To visit it we recommend you to leave your car near the Abrela beach and from there you must take the blue path that will take you directly to O Fuciño do Porco. You must go up the road until you reach a dirt track on the right, then walking among eucalyptus trees you will see a fork, always keep to the left along the widest path until when you approach the walkways you can see the sea. Once you reach the catwalks, walk them without haste, enjoy the fantastic environment until you reach the light beacon that indicates the end of the route. Although it is a route with stairs and some that goes up and down, it is a highly recommended route to do with children, they will love it.
