Wow, the Cies Islands are absolutely GORGEOUS. Lush greenery, blue water, white sand. So picturesque! I spent a lot of time hiking around the area and saw some amazing views. Chilling on the beach was very relaxing as well. One of the best parts of...More

I was in a yacht but the beach is perfectly easy to visit as there are many ferries from a number of ports. There is a brilliant, and mainly local, restaurant right by the ferry landing. A sort of self service but the seafood is...More

Can't get much better than this as a beach. But boy is the sea cold. A wetsuit would be a good idea, especially for snorkelling.

What a find! Upon arrival on the ferry from modern, over-built, rather ugly Vigo this is the Polar opposite. Quiet, unspoilt and unpolluted. A real 'desert island' in the Atlantic. The authorities have worked hard to keep it in its beautiful raw state and forbid...More

Playa de Rodas on ISLAS CIES just a forty minute boat trip from Vigo was stunningly beautiful! Pure white soft sand stretched alongside the wonderful azure blues of the sea. The water around these islands is clear that fish life is very easily visible! The...More

If you are in Galicia and want to get away from the main places then take a trip from Vigo to the unspoilt Cies Islands. About 40 minutes by boat and you think you have arrived in paradise. Fantastic white sandy beaches. Enjoy a walk...More

Hello! I am arriving into Vigo by cruise ship in June 2017 and cannot find a company to take us to this beach. I would like to book in advance. Do you know of any tour companies or ferries I can contact? We would consider any form of transportation, thank you very much! Patti

Hello Patti, I have just booked ferry tickets (return) from Vigo to Cies with Direct Ferries. We're going in a few weeks! Can't wait! :) Enjoy! Neil
