The Walk

O Ézaro Waterfall
The spectacle of the Xallas River

This is a short but pleasant walk along the coastline of the municipality of Dumbría, in the parish of O Ézaro. We start at the small port located at the western end of the sandy area, following the promenade to the beginning of the bridge that crosses the Xallas River. Here we will continue upstream along the beautiful cove where we will see several barges and other boats. On the other bank stands the granite majesty of the foothills of the O Pindo mountains, the socalled Celtic Olympus of Galicia. We soon arrive at the O Ézaro power station where a wooden footbridge takes us to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Galicia: the Xallas River falling directly into the sea.
