This extremely photogenic beach is a not to be missed natural wonder in Galicia. Make sure you visit during the low tide as you have about a 4-hour window (google or check with your hotel for the best time). You'll need an hour - hour and a half to explore the entire beach. Walk to the far right side, where... More

The rocky outcrops were stunning there was plenty of parking at the top and good access points to the café, although you would struggle to get to some parts if in a wheelchair. nice little vendors selling arty makes at the top, quite interesting. This is... More

The views are great. Sadly we missed low tide, so didn't get to see the beaches in all their glory, but it is an amazing coastline.

Place is quite nice, but there are many places in the Galician coast which are as spectacular or more. This one is far too hyped and too full of tourists.

We had planned our trip in Northern Spain and we had included a visit to the Playa de las Cathedrales. What we hadn't anticipated is the tides. Happily, I realized before we left. This beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, cannot be reached at high tide, especially if we want to visit the caves.... More

Amazing beach with stairs and walking path which facilitates how to explore it. Just ensure you visit it at low tide.

Four of us drove the coastal route from Santiago to Bilbao and stopped here for a refreshing walk along the beach, in and out of the many carved rock sections. Great place for photos, beautiful beach, coooold water. But it was sunny and it was great to get in some walking. Best seen at low tide but interesting at any... More

I suppose those who live on the north coast of Northern Ireland near the Giants Causeway and White Rocks will be a little blase and not overwhelmed by this nonetheless attractive stretch of coastline. If you are not used to coastal cliff scenery you will be impressed.This is reckoned to be the best of a number of beaches on this... More

This beach is amazing and well worth a visit. We took masses of photos as the huge rock formations were interesting shapes and cast interesting shadows. There is a beach café and toilets. Go at low tide and preferably early as it is very popular.

Playa de las Catedrales offers a unique experience. The Sea has carved arches on the rocks, that offer an extraordinary vision. The views are breathtaking.
