Itinerary

Ribadeo - 27 km
You arrive in Ribadeo.

Barreiros - 13 km
This stage of the Cantabrian Sea Nature Trail starts at the port of Ribadeo, and continues along the coastline, where the traveller can enjoy the view of breathtaking cliffs and beaches and observe the close relationship of the locals with the sea. Along your route today you will pass by Las Catedrales beach, which translates as beach of the Cathedrals and was declared a Natural Monument due to the astounding beauty of its rocky sculptures carved by the sea. Continue along the coast passing along by many more spectacular smaller beaches before reaching the town of Barreiros, your resting place for the night.

Easy Walking Option: You can bhoose to shorten your walking/cycling day today with an overnight stay in Rinlo.

Foz - 21 km
The trail continues, leaving behind many charming beaches until it reaches the mouth of the Masma river, which forms the Foz-Masma ría, which has been included on the Natural 2000 Network as a Site of Community Importance (SCI) and a Special Protection Areas for Wild Birds (SPAB). Finally, this stage ends at the pretty town of Foz, which boasts a long fishing tradition. Enjoy a lovely meal and rest this evening.

Burela - 12 km
Starting in the fishing village of Foz, the Cantabrian Sea Nature Trail continues across the province of Lugo, taking the traveller across beautiful beaches and passed the remains of ancient settlements, such as the Castro de Llas and the Castro de Fazouro. The traveller is welcomed to Cangas de Foz by the sight of San Pedro church, guarded by an impressive mulberry tree, which has been awarded a Special Tree status. Finish today in the fishing village of Burela.

San Cibrao - 30 km
The trail leaves Burela by the O Portelo beach, allowing the traveller to enjoy the Ril beach and the A Marosa beach by walking along the seafront promenade that runs along the cliffs. After the Rueta beach, the trail leaves the coastline so you can admire the impressive Pazo de Pedrosa and shortly afterwards it arrives to the spectacular village of San Cibrao, where, after walking its peninsula and the Punta Atalaya lighthouse, this stage ends in front of the old fish salting factory and the Don Julián sawmill.

Viveiro - 27 km
Leave San Cibrao by the Lierio ría crossing the O Bao medieval bridge over the Covo river. Reach the Lago beach and the Portiño de Morás. The trail follows the limits of the SCI and SPAB of Costa da Mariña Occidental.
