The urban beach of Arou is one of the best swimming beaches in all of Camariñas. It is a crescent shaped beach sheltered from the winds, with calm waters and white sands. During the summer it is cleaned daily and has a lifeguard service and a local police patrol.

A boardwalk, perfect for an evening walk, stretches along from one end of the beach. On the opposite side, 2 km along the coast, is Camelle. It is a 10-minute drive or a 30-minute walk.
