As Catedrais Beach, Ribadeo

4.7
#1 of 191 in Outdoors in Galicia
The collection of jagged cliffs that decorate the coast at As Catedrais Beach can only be seen at low tide, when the receding water reveals distinctive arches, caves, and rock buttresses. Explore the rocky walls composed of slate and schist, where you'll find complex forms carved by the seawater. However, be aware that tides come in quickly. Cave ceilings have been known to collapse due to erosion, so use caution while exploring. At high tide, the water at the small beach is safe for swimming.

  • Not walkable at this time or at low tide. The water does not go down to see the rock formations or to move more than 2 pieces of the beach that are crowded of people. You should go barefoot and with coat pants to go to the little accessible section. The typical images of the arches of stone or trace. Told us in the accommodation sea has taken about 5 spans of sand which makes that the beach is on a beautiful beach without more... hopefully sand back your website one day and be able to visit it again as it was. A shame!

  • We had talked about this beach and we decided to go to see it and we loved spectacular scenery, clean super water and caves in the form of caves among the spectacular alcantatilados

  • Great, crowded though. Maybe slightly overestimated as there are loads of beautiful beaches and cliffs all around the coast.
  • Be careful with the sea... but go to the beach if possible!
  • This place is magical.
  • Wait for low tide! It's worth! 😀😀😀 Magical place!
  • Best rock formations and caves I've seen!
