Are you looking forward to finally taking that trip with your friends that you've been planning for so long? There's always a good excuse for an A Coruña getaway. Concerts, festivals, art, fashion, beaches, sports, the outdoors and good food.
There's nothing like travelling with friends, for the connection, the laughter and the good times. And in A Coruña we can recommend several plans to make the experience unforgettable.
Your A Coruña holiday with friends
Orzán beach is the longest beach in A Coruña, with waves that are perfect for beginners. Once you try it, you'll be hooked! In and around the city you have several surfing schools to try out and rent the equipment you need to enjoy a great day out with friends. And if the sea is calm, you can go paddle surfing!
Did you know that in A Coruña we also call beers "garimbas"? This is important to know for when you go on your trip. If the sun is shining, why not have a few drinks on a terrace in the Marina, watching the boats in the harbour and the people coming and going? The afternoon will fly by, and you can always have a bite to eat to fill an empty stomach.
If you like beer, you're in the right place. A Coruña is home to the first and only museum in Spain dedicated to beer culture, the Estrella Galicia Museum (MEGA). A unique space where you can feel, enjoy and learn. Don't miss it!
Shopping in A Coruña is an experience you just can't miss. You'll find everything here, from the widest range of shops featuring different clothing brands to workshops from the most creative designers, as well as shopping areas that are truly alternative. You can also visit one of the large shopping centres to have everything at your fingertips: Marineda City, Cuatro Caminos... A Coruña has a style all of its own.
Popularly known as the calles de los vinos, this central area of A Coruña is home to a large number of taverns, bars, restaurants and cafés. From Calle Troncoso to Calle Estrella, passing mainly through streets such as Franja, Barrera, Galera and Olmos, you can accompany your wine or cold beer with the best of Galician gastronomy. And don't miss the Sunday vermouth aperitif! Here, this is the way we like to end the week, chatting with friends or listening to live music.
After the first few beers, or those tapas that turn into dinners, let yourself be swept away in A Coruña's lively nightlife of bars, pubs, cocktail bars and nightclubs. There are venues for all tastes and atmospheres that ensure long nights of fun, music and dancing.
A concert at Sala Pelícano or the Coliseum, a play at Teatro Colón, a Deportivo match at Riazor Stadium, incredible live performances in small concert halls, or the summertime María Pita festivities, with unique events such as the Festival Noroeste Pop Rock Estrella Galicia and the comic festival Viñetas desde O Atlántico. A Coruña is your destination for a good time. The party is guaranteed!
