The tide was high when we were there in July so couldn't walk around the beach, nevertheless, the rock formations are amazing. We took great pictures from the cliffs.

The most surprised me, that it is free but full with bodyguards, parking space (with parkingman) and toilets. There involved more staff than, for example, in Stonehenge, but still free!

Easy to get there from the autovia. We made a stop there on our roadtrip and it was lovely. Beautiful and nice water. Helpful and kind life guards.

When the tide is low, it gets crowded. But it is a wonderful picture. While walking through the caves and arches of Las Cathedrals, my feeling was that this seems like the busiest cathedral I have ever been. Listen to the sermon of the Cantabrian sea, almost saying: "What is wave, will wave again". Very true!, as in 24 hours... More

Think this is the best thing in the area - must visit beach. check the tides before you go to make sure it's going out so you can explore at will.

First - check the time of low tide, second - enjoy really amazing walk down on the beach of Playa des Catedrales. Just before the tide changes you will see amazing rock formations, waves crashing against rocks, beautiful caves and green seaweed covered stones. This is one of the nicest places to see in Galicia. You cannot miss it. It... More

This beach is a must. Most beautiful, pretty and fascinating nature. The rocks, sand and caves makes deep impression. You might be aware of the tide.

When we arrived we were not allowed on the beaches because it was still high tide. We made a walk for about 30 minutes and the sea was drawn back far enough to go to the beaches and visit the rock formations. It was excellent timing because the beach wasnt crowded at that time.

Went there during winter time in a sunny day. It is worth the visit and now I understand why it is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. This is a beach to be visited. To go for a bath, might be too crowded, especially with toursits.
