Queda de Água do Poio
On the mountain parish of Cabril, the more than two metres tall waterfall that comes from the Unhais brook (resulting of the encounter of the Estrela and Alforfa brooks) is quite an interesting natural resource but difficult to get to. The landscape includes the Poio reservoir.
Lagoa de Sancha
Privileged place for migratory birds, filled with reeds and other vegetation typical of swamps. It houses part of the population of the Lagoa de Santo André, most notably the Red-billed duck, facing extinction. Is situated in a place of difficult access, and is separated from the beach by a cordon of dunes.
Lagoa das 3 Braças
Located near Quiaios, the lagoon is roundish, with an approximate diametre of 600 metres, and it is surrounded by a lovely tree area. It has little depth and that explain its dense vegetation, typical of swamp areas. In this place, a havem for aquatic birds, there are bird observatories and a Centre of Environmental Education.
