This beach with strong waves is ideal for surfers. On the other hand, its fine white sand is bordered by seaside walks equipped with exercise areas and benches, as well as beautiful sand dunes that form a small marsh behind the mouth of the Sisalde river which borders a beautiful wood. The grotto of San Xián is at one end of the beach and can only be accessed at low tide. Legend has it that once a fisherman released a rooster in the cave of San Xián, with a rope tied to its leg in order to keep hold of it; the rooster went into the cave and appeared two kilometres further up beside a fresh-water fountain.
