Description

From Eiras Beach the pathway leads to the River Tamuxe Recreational Area, where we can contemplate the ruins of a large steam sawmill and the Aceñas Mill.

This enclave belongs to the Natura 2000 network and consists of a natural ecosystem of great beauty and interest made up of riverside forests, reeds, rushes and pine trees, with a great variety of birds that make this habitat an ornithological setting of great interest.

Large sandy beaches and wonderful views of the River Miño estuary accompany us on the route, which is suitable for the whole family. If you feel like some sport, we would recommend renting a kayak in the area of As Eiras and visiting the little islands halfway over to the Portuguese side, and then sailing up the River Tamuxe.

Access

Take the PO-552 from A Guarda to Tui, until you come to the crossroads with the PO-3303 towards Eiras Beach, in the municipality of O Rosal.

A plus

The Rio Miño is the father of all Galician rivers. From its birth in Lugo, in the Sierra de Meira, until it empties into the Atlantic Ocean between A Guarda and Caminha (Portugal), it flows for 308 kilometers. On its way it flows through various reservoirs such as Belesar, Peares, Velle, Castrelo de Miño and Frieira. Large numbers of seabirds winter in its final stretch, such as the tufted duck (Aythya), the common plover (Pluvialis apricaria) and the lapwing (Vanellus vanellus). There is also a great variety of fish, among which we could highlight the sea lamprey, traditionally caught in these waters.
