The coast of Lugo, in Galicia, has been privileged with its geographical position. More than 800 meters of beach border the Ribadeo community forming a wide tourist enclave, extremely attractive to the eyes of any traveler.
Las Catedrales beach, well known for the majestic rock formations that surround it, allows visitors to enjoy a view like no other. Since it isn’t a conventional beach, the most common activity is sitting on the rocks to contemplate the landscape, as well as taking a tour to see all the wonders across the beach.
Declared a natural monument by the Regional Government Board of Galicia, this beach welcomes many tourists every year, so visiting is only allowed through appointment, but it’s well worth the wait. On the other hand, due to its moderate swell, it is necessary for visitors to attend at times where security can be fully guaranteed.
Since the beach is a protected area, many activities, like camping or climbing, are forbidden. However, tourists can enjoy facilities such as restaurants and pedestrian areas, making the stay a true pleasure.
