Praia de Francelos Beach exhibits a larger dune system than its own sand.
Known for having healing properties, these sea waters attract people from various places for this reason.
The beach is bounded south by the Ribeira de Canelas1 mouth that due to its remarkable flow quite beautifies the landscape.
