Cathedral Beach

The Beach of the Cathedrals is a magnificent example of nature's raw power in action. The Atlantic ocean tides perform, again and again, a living spectacle engulfing and exposing this spectacular coast sprinkled with arches and caves.

The naves and chambers of these cathedrals paved with sand, have been formed when the Cantabrian Sea waves carved and carried away the softer parts of the rock. Now we are the lucky ones to be living in the time of this ongoing geological process, in which we can see the arches before they collapse.

It is recommended to be back to the main beach before the waves start to cover it again, which happens very quickly.
