Excellent port, if the weather is good and you would like a beach day, go straight to the taxis at the front of the port it will cost you €10 to get to a lovely beach... When we was there a dolphin came very close to the shore it was amazing 👌the beach is called Praia de Samil. The taxi will drop you at the taxi rank on the beach which is in the middle... Also when you are ready to go back head to the taxi rank and a taxi will either be there or will come along shortly. There is a bar and restaurant & McDonald's if you choose. A park for the kids and a outside pool...
A great little town, not that much to do. I enjoyed watching the oyster shuckers. I seem to remember drinking a bit too much in a local restaurant as the local beer was lethal 😅
Didn't do an excursion. The town was easy to walk around with several shops and cafés to stop in. For the adventurous, the climb to the top of Monte de O Castro (the easily seen green area up the hill from the port) is fun. Rigorous walk with hundreds of steps and inclines, but the ruins and gardens and the top were nice and the panoramic view was beautiful.
Loved this port shops everywhere sat in a lovely quaint outside cafe had sangria in the sunshine and chilled with friends

Santiago de Compostela (one hour away in train) is beautiful. The tours are expensive, just ask where is the train station and the tickets are like 9 euros per person round trip, and Santiago is easy to walk it.

No excursion. Lovely city but not as big as I expected. Pleasant to stroll around.

Excellent short walk of ship gets you in town centre I can thoroughly recommend going off and doing it for yourself. no guide needed, you just have to walk and not get ferried about by coach.
Nice port with cafes and shops. Walked up the very steep hill to El Castro Fortress. Tough climb but worth it for the view
