Often missed by most travellers, are the paths meandering above Cathedral Beach in Northern Spain. The views from up here are spectacular. Rock art along the old stone fences makes for interesting photos. This is especially fun to walk along while you are waiting for the tide to recede and access to the beach and caves becomes available! Drawing the most visitors at low tide, when the rock formations, caves and tide pools become accessible it is a great place to spend a couple of hours exploring the 1400 meters of sandy beach, caves, tide pools and wading in the waves. Be forewarned in the summer months and Easter holidays you must apply for a visitor pass to access the beach area. This helps to preserve this spectacular area and prevent overcrowding. Available here and free of charge.

Walking along the path above we got a bird's-eye view of the rock formations and caves carved out by the powerful surf.

We visited in July and found lots of places to explore and it did not feel crowded. The water was cold and felt wonderfully refreshing on a hot day!

Clear, cold, aquamarine water to wade in. You can reach Cathedral Beach or officially known as Praia de Augas Santas (Beach of the Holy Waters) via the A8; exit 516. It is well marked and lots of parking when you reach the beach area. There is also a restaurant/bar near the carpark to have an icy cold Galician beer and enjoy the the views.
