BEACHES OF ORTIGUEIRA and CAPE ORTEGAL
Hearty homemade breakfast. We take the train towards Ortigueira and enjoy the loveliest stretch of the whole journey: passing Mera it feels is as if the train were sailing on the water, for during high tide the tracks are practically at the same level as the sea. In Ortigueira, in addition to visiting its old quarter, we can also visit the port, where it is possible to catch a glimpse of otters and walk to the wild beach of Morouzos (5 km there and back). You can wait for the train in Ortigueira or take a taxi to the Port of Espasante (8 km) to discover another attractive sea port that is famous for the seafood offered at various restaurants with views to the sea. It is essential to book a table in advance during the high season. Our route continues in the afternoon to the train stop in Loiba, where our guide will be expecting you to take you on a route along the Loiba cliffs: we will go towards the “best bench in the world” overlooking the “aguillóns” of Cabo Ortegal, those islets with sharp pointy rocks that crown the cape, and we will also see a tiny jetty between the rocky cliffs that is witness to the sea’s roughness. The distance there and back is of 6 km, with an average difficulty (3 hours). Train back to the hotel. Accommodation. Forecasted FEVE schedule: Cerdido 11:18 – Ortigueira 11:41, Ortigueira 16:31 or Espasante 16:36 – Loiba 16:43, Loiba 19:47 – Cerdido 20:24 h.
