Photographer's Note

Hello Friends, today I present this beautiful view from the Mirador de Ézaro dominating part of the ria de Corcubión, villas and Pindo Ézaro and Xallas river mouth, is also Cape Finisterre, but this photo almost got the position of the sun prevented him then some site description. Hope you like it despite the difficult light.

Ézaro is a small town on the Costa da Morte, belongs to the City Council of Dumbria, and located within walking distanca Pindos town. It is famous and admired throughout Galicia for its waterfall in the sea, by the Mirador, on the beach, and being located next to the legendary Mount Pindus.
The people of Ézaro is really small, and is located near the AC-550 road, the beach and a little to the creek or small river that bears the waterfall and gazebo. In summer it becomes a people with many more people and tourists who do not want to miss this beautiful town and its charms.
The Beach
Beautiful and cute white sand beach with all services located in the village itself.

WATERFALL Xallas
This is a unique waterfall / Fervenza which flows into the sea in Europe (Update: It would be more correct to say good southern Europe, in the fjords and Scandinavian countries there are more), so it is very special.
Until recently, the cascade could only admire certain days, because of a hydroelectric station located next door which Xallas water used to generate electricity.
Fortunately, in recent times, and is open at all hours, even have made a charming and beautiful wooden boardwalk to get to his feet, where we have a gazebo with a wooden bleachers where we can sit and admire the strength and beauty Cascade.
The Saturday night you can enjoy the illuminated waterfall (consult because fluctuates a lot)

VIEWPOINT
If we go up from the waterfall (walk) or drive down the road, we reach one of the most spectacular places of the Costa da Morte, the Mirador del Ézaro.
From this point, we can see a few meters in front of the stone beauty of Mount Pindus. On the left we see a small reservoir of the hydroelectric centers, right down to see the village and its small mouth Pindo sea or estuary and to the front on the right, in the distance, the Cape Finisterre (Finisterre).

The climb to the viewpoint from the people have very steep, and we'll save at 2km and good slope. We find after a hairpin bend a drop bestial, a 28-30% for 200 meters. Eye that many cars have been "drafts" and then start a hard time with that slope. Same for down, careful because the road is narrow, with a lot of slope and many tight corners ... and cars can come forward.
At dusk, from this vantage point we see a beautiful sunset with the background Cape Finisterre.

GETTING
Reaching Ézaro is simple, is located between Cee and Carnota on the coast, and is crossed by the AC-550 coastal road. On reaching the village, and before the bridge (if coming from Cee) see diversion to the left towards the lookout and waterfall (same road). About 500 meters will see a small parking esplanade and there comes a maritime path (boardwalk) to the waterfall. If we go by car, go up towards the balcony. No loss.
