Lagoa da Vela

Surrounded by the Quiaios Pine Woods and by green fields, the Vela Lagoon has a long shape and flowws by the sea, only five kilometres away from it. The Quiaios Lagoon is its biggest lagoon, two kilometres long and 200 metres wide. Its depth, about five metres, lends it little vegetation. It has many water animals and it is connected to the Foja river by a brook.
