The beaches in this area are unique, with the famous Playa de las Catedrales one of the highlights with its fascinating rock arches that have been sculpted by the sea. In addition to a wonderful coastline, you can enjoy the region's great diversity and extraordinary richness in terms of natural heritage and landscapes.
Walk through a Giant's forest with some of the tallest and oldest eucalyptus trees in Europe, explore Rei Cintolo Cave and its 5 kilometres of length, or walk the Paseo de los Enamorados. These are just some of the magical experiences available in our area. On the other hand, there are also protected natural spaces, like the Río Eo Biosphere Reserve and Las Terras do Miño, which offer great places where you can enjoy nature in all its glory via numerous hiking routes.
The main towns in the vicinity, such as Ribadeo and Foz (both within 15 kilometres of the hotel), are perfect leisure destinations, especially if you're looking to enjoy a spot of shopping as there are many markets and streets bustling with activity. Both towns see their populations double during summer.
