The Cies Island is nice to walk around, with very good views and a pristine beach. For me, a bit overrated though.

One of the most amazing beaches in the world, regularly identified among the 10 most beautiful beaches by any guide. You need to take a boat from Vigo or Baiona to get there, but it is definitely worth spending a day here. Be aware that there is a limitation of the number of people which can be at the same...

Spent the day here with my boyfriend - really unexpectedly stunning!! We took the ferry from Vigo, which was about a 20 minute ride. We left at 8am and returned at 5pm. They have a lot of trails for hiking and a camp site, as well as a few restaurants, which is nice! We did the hike up to one... More

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
