Coulor of blue and green, with lots of points to visit with beautiful unexplored nature. It is really worth a visit for a 3 day trip

Not what you would expect from a national park - basically just another overcrowded and noisy beach, no doubt in a beautiful setting, but why go to the trouble of travelling here when all you want to do is lie in the sun (which is what most people seemed to be doing)? There are some nice walks across the island... More

If you do anything while visiting Vigo it has to be leave Vigo on a ferry to Cies. Pack your swimming costume and sun tan lotion and set sail to the islands for a fabulous day of sunbathing, swimming and chilling in beautiful beaches. If you can, camp there. I wish we had instead of wasting our money at the... More

This beach has the clearest water I have ever seen! Lovely sandy beach, a bit cold water, but very refreshing and clear with plenty of fish to see if snorkeling. It's worth even as a day trip from Vigo!

I love the sand, the colour of the water, the views. The water temperature is always very cold in this region.

I believe there is no doubt about the breathtaking views, the nature in here are extremely beautiful, in this islands beside the beaches with white sand and crystal clear water, you have camping, restaurants and some activities such as snorkeling and trekking. Maybe the islands are being explored, but that can be a point of discussion. I think beside the... More

It has everything to be a tropical beach besides the water temperature.... :) Me and some friends went there for a full day on the beach and i must say, was a wonderful day. The beach is very large, white sand, calm waters to swim along side the fish's, literally.... After lunch we went visit the rest of the island,... More

Walk 10 mins to the right when you come off the jetty, the beach is much less crowded. I'm glad we made the day trip from Santiago for this (July 2013) The restaurant prices were not as extortionate as I expected but if I went back I would probably try to take a picnic as it is cheaper and more...
