Beach of the Cathedrals

Galicia, Spain

Heralded as one of Europe’s most beautiful beaches, the Beach of the Cathedrals in Galicia’s Lugo province has been inspiring poets and lovers for centuries. Here, eons of wind and water erosion have sculpted the surrounding cliffs to form 100-foot-high dramatic arches, rivaling the flying buttresses of Europe’s most famed cathedrals. Plan your trip at low tide to make the most of the beach and the view of the turquoise waters of the Bay of Biscay.
