Few people are aware of the industrial past of this town, more often associated today with surfing and txakoli wine. The Mollarri loading jetty was built in 1906. All the iron ore mined at Asteasu, 11 kilometres away, was transported here in buckets on an aerial tramway, supported on 112 posts. The jetty was closed in 1923, partly due to the poor berthing conditions at the site. The still unspoiled site offers some spectacular views and wonderful sunsets.
