Rock formations

How to get there

Leaving Cadavedo and following the N-632, you can reach this beach. When the road marks the Regalina hermitage, take the road to the right, which leads to the beach after a kilometre and a half. It has a parking area, equipment and services such as showers, restaurants, security post, picnic area and cleaning. Near this beach it is possible to enter more intimate and very beautiful coves, such as El Churín and Tablizo or L’Abiera, with more complicated access but worth seeing.
