Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 2,600+ 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.

  • Incredible landscape formed by the abrasion of the sea on the coast where can watch curious formations in the shape of small islets with ahujeros anyway, and even small xuevas which are flooded with high tide. In high season, I think that it must be booked by the number of visitors. Highly recommended to take a break to enjoy this landscape.

  • When I was in Ribadeo I went. It is the second time that I. It is a stunning, magical place! If we don't want to close it, we will take care of it all!

  • Impressive scenery. Very important to check the tides before you go since you will not see a thing if it is high tide. Also, from July to September you have to book a month in advance to be able to visit. It is still free, but you have to book, since they want to limit the number of people down there, which is perfectly reasonable!
  • One of the best places on earth! Amazing beach. If you have the time, be there for the high tide and then be there for the low tide... the difference with take your breath away.
  • Impressive beach with its rock pilars. We visited it on a windy day with a lot of waves, and it had a surreal and inspiring atmosphere.
  • It's great to see the beauty of the rocks
