Beaches of Reira

<<Cemetery of the EnglishThe Lighthouse of Vilán>>

The beaches or Feira are the four beaches placed between the beach Trece and the CapeVilán. They are beaches with fine sand, very windy and with huge waves, surrounded by a charming almost unspoiled landscape.

We walk through the beach Reira to get to Punta Forcados, where we can see “A Pedra do Oso”. Someone liked the rock and he or she took it with him or her in 2002. Actually, nobody knew anything about it for a few days. It ended up appearing in a construction area as some building workers had been asked to bring some stones from Camariñas. As it was easy to be found, they loaded it with a crane and let´s go! This is a kind of stories that can happen in A Costa da Morte which makes us think how vulnerable our cultural heritage is.

Close to the beach, we can see also the ethnographic collection of Foxo dos Lobos, an old device the inhabitants from the area used to catch the wolves, whose presence in this area is widely spread.

We will walk through the beaches Balea and Pedrosa before going up the mountainside of the mountPedrosa till we take again the dirty track that will lead us to Vilán.

 

All along this stretch, we can see the lighthouse Vilán. We will reach it as soon as we walk across the windmill of the “Alto da Vela”
