The Dunes of Corrubedo Natural Park (Galician: Dunas de Corrubedo e Lagoas de Carregal e Vixán) is a 4 square miles (10 km2) natural park on the Atlantic coast of Spain. It is one of six natural parks in the autonomous community of Galicia. It is situated at the very end of the Barbanza Peninsula in the province of A Coruña.

Conservation[edit]

The natural park was designated in 1992. Its international importance as a wetland was recognised the following year when it became a Ramsar site.[2]

The natural park is an important site for bird-life and the European Union has included it within a Special Protection Area.[3]
