We went three times this trip. We rent a house close by and we saw it in every stage: high and low tide, early morning, afternoon and night. Every time we went was a place with such a beauty that it is breathtaking.

Really worth a visit, very unusual rock formations, and a superb beach. Good pathways to walk along to view the cliffs.

I had read about the beach, but never expected to see this natural wonder. It was truly breathtaking and unforgettable.! A must see by everyone who visits Lugo. Make sure you know when the tide is low!

We missed low tide so was unable to walk on the beach beneath the rock arches. Very impressive part of the coast along a stretch of road with a number of nice sandy beaches.

The low tide lasts up to 4 hours. You should allow yourself at least an hour to explore the entire beach area and take amazing pictures. The guards at the entrance will tell you how much time you have left before the water... More
