MOAÑA

Moaña

Moaña is one of the five municipalities on the Morrazo peninsula, together with Cangas, Marin, Bueu and Vilaboa.

In Moaña we find beaches like Domaio, Borna, A Xunqueira or O Con (blue flag award), where tourists can stroll around sandbanks also used for the production of shellfish such as clams and cockles.

The waters of Moaña enjoy excellent characteristics for mussel production.  Mussel rafts are easily spotted from the coast.

Moaña hosts two marinas, one for fishermen and one for leisure boats, as well as cultural activities where such as the Festival Interceltique do Morrazo.

The history of Moaña is closely related to the sea.  The famous battle of Rande took place in the strait of the same name. In this battle a large amount of gold brought from the recently discovered Americas was lost at the hands of the English and Dutch Navy, which defeated the Franco-Spanish fleet. (This is where Captain Nemo found gold in the Jules Verne book “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”).
