The Arosa estuary is more than a geodestination. It is a world tourist reference for two reasons: because it is considered the richest in the world – and that wealth ends up in the kitchen – and because it has a series of well known and very popular beaches. Enclosed by the Sálvora Island (part of the Parque Nacional dás Illas Atlánticas, as is Cortegada, opposite Carril) and a spectacular string of islets, in its interior there is another piece of land that has been connected to the mainland by a bridge for twenty-five years: A Illa de Arousa, with the Punta Carreirón nature reserve.
And speaking of nature reserves, it would be unforgivable not to speak of the Parque Natural das Dunas de Corrubedo e Lagoas de Carregal e Vixán, where we can admire the largest shifting dune in Galicia and confirm that one of the lagoons has salt water and the other, fresh. Another space integrated into the Natura 2000 Network is the Ons-O Grove complex, the junction of two ecosystems rich in biodiversity: sea waters and waters from the estuary's interior.
And, reaching the bottom of the estuary, the mouth of the River Ulla belongs to the Ulla-Deza river system. For lovers of cycling, the Campo de Golf de Meis has the first ATB ATB centre in Galicia, with ten routes for discovering the rich landscape and monumental of Salnés.
