At the entrance of the Ría de Muros e Noia, en route to the Costa da Morte, the silhouette of Monte Louro is amazing. With its two humps of granite and reaching 241 metres above sea level, the mountain seems to emerge directly from the sea, like a portentous and playful Neptune.
At the foot of the Monte – enclosed by the spanking white tongue of sand from the Area Maior beach – is the lagoon of As Xarfas, a complex dune ecosystem rich in flora and fauna. Here reigns the herons, which are attracted by the abundance of amphibians and reptiles.
Very close, completing this beautiful nature reserve, is the magnificent beach of beach of Ancoradoiro, surrounded by beautiful pine trees... perfect for a nap after a swim.
