The chronicles say that in 1800, an English army made ​​up of over a hundred warships and numerous infantry on the shore ready to disembark and take Ferrol. Although it seemed easy, the troops of Admiral Warren had many problems with the surf of the sea. The "chalupas" were cannon fodder for Ferrol, the road was well defended, and passage through the lagoon was impracticable. Beach Doniños thus contributed to the English defeat.
