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.

As Catedrais Beach Reviews
We were heading for Cathedral Beach when we discovered that there is a beautiful driving route, and an even better walking route along 16 kilometers of the beaches. All are well worth seeing. more »
There are few places with such majestic views as Paia de Catedrais. The beach at low/high tide and morning/evening is an experience like none other. Photographers - know high/low tide to access... more »
It's really a wonderful beach to go visit in Galicia. All the cave systems and the cliffs and all the rock formations are amazing to see. It also is a very clean beach and it's nice to swim in the water as well. A sure place to go in Galicia.
The most popular visitor spot to see the cliff formations and beaches in the area. Parking is free and there is a small bar/restaurant. It can get quite crowded and to see the beach and cliffs at their best you need to go at low tide. It's a beautiful spot.
