The highlight of the visit are the amazing views of Praia das Catedrais (Cathedral Beach) at low and high tide. We are fortunate to experience both. At low tide we can walk amongst the striking cliff formations. At high tide you must see them from the cliffs above.
Low tide on the first day is at 9:30, so we want to get there early
"Breakfast is served from 9:00 am" is the brusque reply.
“We may as well go to the supermarket and get some supplies for a picnic lunch” suggests Miryam.
Just down the block is an Eroski Supermarket with underground parking. We descend into the depths and the lights go on as the car movement is detected. It seems pretty empty. I park, exit, and the lights go off. Its pitch black and no waving of arms will turn on the lights again. We finally struggle out into daylight to find that the supermarket only opens at 9:30am. Boy, this sure is a laid-back town!
In spite of this, Ribadeo is a lively little town, as is the much larger town of Foz nearby. We also take a drive inland to visit Mondoñedo and Vilaba. The countryside of Galicia is beautiful, green and fertile, looking almost like the Devon and Cornwall.
