The sea winds sweep up the slopes of the hillside, covering it with fine sand and giving it the white appearance for which it is named. Monte Branco is a formation sealing the Anllóns estuary at the point where the river meets the sea.

From the top of the mountain there are views of beaches, cliffs, dunes and the long tongue of sand forming the O Medio beach, known as A Barra, which seems to be trying to stop the Anllóns reaching the sea.

The O Roncudo lookout point faces the A Insua mountain where the Laxe lighthouse guides seafarers, with the small estuary of the Corme and Laxe rivers between them, almost all of which is visible from this lookout point.
