Camariñas is a seaside village known for its production of bobbin lace and for its natural and environmental riches, of which the emblematic Cape Vilán lighthouse has been a witness through the years. It is located on a peninsula, one side of which overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the other one, the calm ria waters shared with the neighbouring municipality of Muxía. Camariñas is named after the caramiña bush (Corema album).
The village economy is reliant on the marine sector. Our fishing port is the major port in the Costa da Morte, important for its production of sardine and octopus.
We also have a Seafarers´ guild, a shellfish gatherers association, a goose-barnacle pickers association, and one of the region’s most famous canneries, Grupo Cerdeimar, together with octopus, seaweed and seafood manufacturing companies
