The beach of the Cathedrals

It stands out because when the tide rises it is completely covered by the waters, which have molded the shape of the cliffs that give it its name. Those arches and the formations are surprising because they are totally natural and have attracted the attention of hundreds of people. At present the capacity on the beach is limited to avoid deterioration, so you have to reserve at least 45 days in advance.
