As Catedrais Beach, Ribadeo

4.6
#1 of 246 in Parks 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.

  • Charming place. You have to be cautious that with high tide is dangerous, but it is spectacular!

  • Obligatory stop, to take into account the time, can be a madness by the amount of people and tides

  • At low tide The water leaves and reveals the shore, and the cliffs that form as if the vaults of the cathedral cathedrals. Hence the name. We were a little unlucky, because the water went as if "not quite" so wet your feet and actually under the arches of these rocky arches we did not go, T. to the day before the stone fell from the top and killed the girl. But it's really cool no matter what. About the organization. There are not enough people at the entrance to the beach (it is stairs). People who will consider all who go there and accordingly warn that it is time to leave.

  • Stunning views and amazing beach. They only let a certain number of people access the beach so buy your tickets in advance and go during low tide.
