This beach is not like any beach. The many rock formations provide variations. When the tide starts coming in, it is a bit eerie as you wonder what you would do if you did get caught out there. Check ebb and tide times online to see it at ebb. Though you can see it when the tide is in too.... More

Wee visited this beach during our stay in Ribadeo. It is very nice. We live on the California coast, and ocean beaches are nothing new, but this is a very nice one. Note that the high tide completely covers the beaches to the cliff, so pay attention to the tide. Even in November, there were swimmers and surfers.

very impressive area, well preserved and clean. Staff on the ground is very helpful with small kids, prefer barefoot walking as the sand is very smooth and you can cross some areas with small ponds.

Have to see beach. Admission free but controlled entry. Be aware to go with the right shoes and pants. For the best spots you have to cross the water.

Not in my guide book, or on leaflets in the hotel, is only 15 mins from Gijon and is well worth a trip, make sure it is low tide, and get there early as it gets busy and there are not many car parks. The attraction is the rocks which have been eroded by the sea and wind in different... More

A must see when you travel to Spain. Fantastic rock formations literally take the breath away - it is the most beautiful "cathedral" I have ever been too. Plan your visit in a way to be able to see both low and high tide - it gives you different perspectives and allows you to appreciate the most beautiful features of... More

We drove over to Spain and headed straight to playa de las Catedrales. It was amazing!!! The weather was nice, the breeze perfect and the scenery mind blowing. We will return next year with the rest of the family.
