There is a network of paths and footbridges to avoid invading the dune area and to show visitors the area as completely as possible while showing respect for the natural environment. The starting point is the Casa da Costa or Visitors’ Reception Centre located in O Vilar. There is also another building housing the Galicia Coastal Ecosystems Interpretation Centre (CIELGA) and set out as an informative museum dealing with natural, geological and historical matters for which the Park is justly known. The layout of the self-guided tours (water route, sea route and wind route) allows most of these aspects to be approached. Don’t leave your binoculars at home.
On this journey via the AC-550 road, we will find directions to two other protected lagoons, that of Xuño and Muro, close to the famous beach of As Furnas which was immortalized by Amenábar in his film Mar adentro [The Sea Inside].
