Description

The Ría de Aldán opens out in the furthest point of the O Morrazo peninsula between the headland of O Couso (See SCI Costa da Vela) and Cabo Udra. Its coast, from the beach of A Mourisca (Bueu) and Menduíña (Cangas) is a ring of rocks and small sandy areas touched by the beauty and richness of the sea.

Dolphins, the bottle-nose dolphin and porpoises are quite frequently seen in these protected waters. From land, the wonderful sight of them in a panoramic view of the sea is one of the main attractions of a visit. There is a signposted route from Bueu and a nature workshop in the municipality of Beluso.

On our journey we will find the strange “chozos”, shepherds huts in the shelter of the many rocks in the area, and abandoned military batteries.
