Playa de las Catedrales, Ribadeo

(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
The collection of jagged cliffs that decorate the coast at Playa de las Catedrales 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. Make Playa de las Catedrales a part of your Ribadeo vacation plans using our Ribadeo travel itinerary planner.

  • An essential place if rounds close. Take advantage to visit it while it's free. (I think that sooner or more will begin to charge to see it)

  • A spectacular beach that I recommend to visit everyone. Holy week and summer should book before power down to the beach.
