Cliffs of Lires

<<Estuary of LiresBeach of Rostro>>

From the beach of Lires to the beach Rostro, O Camiño dos Faros there is a stretch that will take us to see the cliffs of Lires from different perspectives. If you pay attention to the arrows and you will never have a problem. We leave by taking the route that starts on the beach and we get to the coves of Area Pequeña and Area Grande. It is at this point where the first ascent of the day starts, it is short but demanding. It will take us to a top from where we could see what we are leaving behind.

When we reach Punta da Lagoa we go across the cliff being careful as we should keep ourselves on the route. Now, it is possible to hear the noise of the waves breaking against the rocks. We stop several times because the views of Petón Vermello and Point Besugueira, with the beach Rostro on the foreground worth being admired. We have to do this route with no rush as it is a very demanding route, but it is the last one and we want to enjoy it.

From that point, just a small part along the mount till we reach the Point Besugueira, where the cliff of Mexadoira starts. A cliff we walk across in line, one behind the other and so on. Don´t  leave the route to take the typical photo as some stretches fall down in vertical.

It is amazing and very difficult to describe. The cliffs down in vertical over a base of rocks that, with the sea breaking against them and the rock of red granite form an amazing landscape. At the end of the cliff, a small stream that goes down the mount falls in the “bolos” creating a small waterfall. When we reach there and we turn over ourselves, it is then when we can admire the beauty of this place without any risk. Once again, we are surrounded by a wild, unique stretch of this Camiño dos Faros, unknown by most of people.

We leave Mexadoira and, suddenly, we see the greatness of the beach Rostro. It will take us just a few minutes to reach it.
