Description

The Loiba coastline is, literally, a film set. Many television series and films, such as Pedro Almodóvar’s La mala educación, were filmed by these steep, rugged cliffs.

Os Picóns are a series of immense and intriguing formations of phylite and schist, sculpted by the wind and waves to create echoing grottoes and caves.

From the top of the cliffs the magnificent Loiba beach can be seen in the foreground, with wild seas that sculptured the Pena Furada, a monumental rock whose arches brave the ravages of the sea. In the distance, stretching out to the west, Cape Ortegal completes the scene. The best spot to enjoy these views is from the well-known Loiba bench.
