With its substantial area of sand flanked by dunes separating it from the adjoining fields, the beautiful Cepães Beach is part of the Litoral de Esposende Protected Landscape.
While the waves here are strong, this Beach is not particularly recommendable for surfing due to the existence of underwater rocks, particularly along the northern stretch.
Part of the Litoral de Esposende Protected Landscape, Apúlia Beach covers a large expanse of sand surrounded by dunes that serve to protect the Beach from stronger winds. The dunes are also home to former windmills that have now been converted into holiday homes.
Surrounded by dunes and pines, Suave-Mar Beach is to be found next to the mouth of the Cávado river and within the Litoral de Esposende Protected Landscape.
