  • Margaridas: A bit of a hike but ideal if you want the beach to yourself.
  • Cantareira: A small bay with a pebble beach, close to the Volunteer Camp.
  • Figueiras: A nudist beach with trees providing shade for the hottest days.
  • Mixueiro y Areina: Two small bays for those who want some tranquillity, to the right of the Jetty at As Rodas.
  • Rodas: According to the Guardian newspaper, this is the best beach in the world. The beach joins the islands of Monteagudo (north) and Faro (south). The fine white sand squeaks as you walk and the waters are a clear emerald colour. The dunes around the beach are a conservation zone and are at this moment in a state of recuperation.
  • Bolos: Also known as Conchas due to the large number of shells to be found there. It is at the end of Rodas beach.
