Beaches, flora and fauna of indescribable beauty and a fascinating natural environment.
Vigo's greatest natural treasure.
This set of islands is one of the most special places not only in Galicia but in the whole country; in fact, the Cíes Islands are already in the process of becoming a World Heritage Site. These three small islands (Monteagudo, Illa do Faro and San Martiño) at the mouth of the Vigo estuary are a real must for anyone visiting the city; sublime beaches, unparalleled natural beauty, flora and fauna unique to the islands and one of the richest underwater ecosystems on the entire Galician coast. The Romans actually called the Cíes Islands the Islands of the Gods. They can only be reached by boat from Vigo and, as visitors rarely want to leave, there is a small campsite if you choose to stay the night.
