The tongue of land and the islet Anxuela acted as natural dykes to allow the anchoring of medium size vessels in the sea that today hosts the port of San Ciprián, where the coastal fleet is dedicated mainly to shell fishing and small-scale fishing. It is precisely in this town where the two gastronomic seafaring festivals of Cervo take place: the Festa do Ourizo de Mar, of National Tourist Interest, and the Festa do Mexillón.
