Amazing views

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.

Must see. Is one of the marvelous of the galician coast, but pay attention with the tide. Ask for the hours for low tide. In august is impossible to see it for the crowd of people. No te lo puedes perder. Aconsejo a ir a primera hora de la mañana cuando la marea está baja, pero primero mejor enterarse de... More

We recently visited here without knowing anything about high and low tides or tickets for the beach.It was high tide as it happens and out of season but we thoroughly enjoyed the views of the arches and the walk along the cliff top in warm sunshine.my recommendation would be for people to just go visit and enjoy.
