One day Sailing Trip to Salvora Island
The destination of this one-day sailing excursion is the island of Sálvora , which is part of the National Park of the Atlantic
Islands of Galicia. The Sálvora archipelago is made up, in addition to the main island that gives it its name, a string of smaller islands such as Noro,
Vionta , Herbosa or Sagres , and a good number of islets with names as varied as Home de Sagres, or Falcoeiro, As Moas, or As Quixadas.
On this one-day excursion day sailing we can navigate through the narrow passages that open between the islands and that in good weather represent a considerable shortcut
to enter or leave the estuary of Arousa, as well as a challenge to piloting skills: the Paso del Carreiro, the Paso de Sagres or the Paso Interior de Sálvora are good
From A Pobra do Caramiñal there is an approximate distance of about 10 nautical miles, and if we set sail from Vilagarcía we
would have to add others 5 miles. Therefore, it is a day in which we will be able to navigate practically the entire Arousa estuary to reach the archipelago that is
located at the wedding of the estuary.
On the island of Sálvora we anchored at Almacén beach , where in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was salting of fish and later a
tuna fishery. The sculpture on a rock in the middle of the bay of the " Sirena de los Mariño ", a family that owned the island in the past, is striking.
The Warehouse building was converted by the family of the Marqués de Revilla, the last owners of the island before it became part of the natural heritage
of the Xunta de Galicia, in a summer country house, and the old island tavern in the chapel of the country house.
What to do once anchored in our sailboat on the island of Sálvora ? Difficult answer: maybe sunbathing on deck and taking a refreshing swim?
Maybe go down to the beach with the boat's dinghy? Maybe take a walk around the island? And why not everything? It's your day.
Our advice is that you bring your own picnic: some fruit, omelettes or sandwiches. Our sailboat has a fridge, as well as a kitchen in case you also want to heat
something. There is no bar or restaurants open to the public on the island .
At dusk we return to the port of origin to disembark around 7:00 p.m. with the pleasure of having sailed the Ría de Arousa and the Sálvora archipelago
in this unforgettable One Day Sailing Excursion to the Island of Sálvora
