Straight beach, with magnificent white sand, windy with heavy waves (careful with the currents). Rural environment. It has two accesses: Punta Penencia (few people) and Outeiro (crowded). Ideal for surfing, with the "Circuito O´Neill" trial events. Punta do Castro (northern edge), has the remains of a Pre-Roman "Castro" where jewels and Celtic artefacts were found; on the beach, on the ruins of a castle, are the installations of a coastal artillery battery, served by the Navy. The history goes that on 25-08-1800, an English fleet of over a hundred warships and a large number of infantry arrived off the beach, ready to disembark and take Ferrol. Although it seemed easy, Admiral Warren´s troops had considerable difficulties with the undertow. The ships were bombarded by Ferrol cannons, the road was well-defended, and the passage via the lagoon was not practical. And so Doniños Beach contributed to the English defeat.
