It is a Fanal Bathing Area. Going to the Fanal baths was very common in the first decades of the 20th century. With a practically submerged pier, still perfectly visible today, the place delighted bathers at that time. The recreational use of this site and later its accessibility was made impossible, a fact made worse by the public sanitation water that had been diverted to this location. Works were carried out to protect the coastline, taking advantage of the bay to enhance it, and access to the sea, which had long disappeared, was restored.
