The large shifting dune is the attraction. It is so spectacular that scenes for films set in the desert have been filmed here. More than one kilometre long, 250 metres wide and 20 metres high, the Corrubedo shifting dune stands out from a distance, white as a queen of sand, in this nature park, which is the most visited in Galicia, welcoming nearly 300,000 people a year.
Situated between the estuaries of Arousa and Muros e Noia, the park covers about 1,000 hectares. It consists of the dunes, Corrubedo beach and the lagoons of Vixán – of fresh water – and those of Carregal, of salt water. Among rushes and reeds, both are home to the 3,000 waterfowl that live here: teals, curlews, spoonbilled ducks, sandpipers and plovers. A world of feathers and squawks to which is added the laughter and races of the playful otters.
