The Dunas de São Jacinto Nature Reserve is a Portuguese nature reserve and is located at the end of the peninsula that runs from Ovar to São João.
Dune formations are very sensitive areas due to their sandy constitution. They are of enormous importance as they are the best defense against the intensity of the winds, sands and sea advances. Conserving the geomorphological, floristic and faunal heritage of the dunes is to prevent the advance of the sea and safeguard the lives of populations.
