Beach of the Cathedrals, natural paradise in Galicia

.
Without hesitation, we can say that the Beach of the Cathedrals is one of the most beautiful in Spain. We would dare to say that it is one of the most beautiful in the world, but we do not want to create debate on this because "for tastes, colors."
To get to the Beach of the Cathedrals, we advise you to spend the night in Ribadeo, the nearest town and also the place where we have eaten the best Galician octopus in our history. But we are going to what we are going, and forget for now the octopus that at this time ...

The Beach of the Cathedrals is located a few kilometers from Ribadeo. It is very easy to find since it is indicated everywhere.

The erosion of wind and water has shaped a landscape worthy of any science fiction film. Some of its cliffs are 32 meters high.
I advise you to visit it both at high tide and at low tide to see its two facets. When the tide is low, you can go down some stairs and stroll along the sand next to the walls of the cliffs literally covered with barnacles.

It is not difficult to find some octopus trapped in small pools of water. You must be very careful and know the schedules of the tides very well. Some tides rise so suddenly that they can leave us trapped. The problem is that the landscape is so brutal that you completely forget the passage of time and then you have to run.

The Beach of the Cathedrals is called, indeed, Beach of Aguas Santas, but it seems that on a tourist level this name did not draw so much attention.

Without intending to discredit the landscape, which is a fairy tale, it should be noted that what used to be a little known place, has become a tourist attraction and is currently suffering extreme human pressure. So much so that the Xunta de Galicia, the government of the autonomous community, is considering regular access. We have always been against regulations, but we must admit that sometimes there is no other solution. Our advice, look for a day when the tide will come down very early and be the first to go. I can assure you that the sunrises are spectacular and you can be completely alone.

If you can, do not miss a sunset, although you will not be very alone. Of course, if you can go on a low-season weekend, or even winter, better than better, then you will enjoy the true essence of this place.

Be that as it may, the Beach of the Cathedrals should be on the wish list of anyone passionate about travel and nature.
