The area of faro da Porta, built in 1918, takes its name from the canal which is between the lighthouse island and the southern one and it´s also called O Freu da Porta. If we have a look from Punta Carnaval we can get a general idea of what is happening in the sea, in these rich valuable underwater ecosystems where there is a great biodiversity and constituted some of the reasons why the islands were declared Maritime-Terrestrial National Park of the Atlantic Islands in Galicia. The 86% of the surface of the park is maritime (the only one in Spain together with the one in Cabrera) that´s why the marine environment is so important.
So we will be able to explore the diverse seafloors, the meaning of “coastal zoning”, the meaning of “ardora”, the influence of tides or the presence of sea mammals.
