It is a beautiful island, with this magnificent sandy beach where you can swim or sunbathe, meanwhile you take a beer.

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 my trip.

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 cooked to order and is great value.

The beach is extremely beautiful. Water is pure and blue but it is a bit cold. In general this place is a pure nature so i u have a chance to visit it, do it. Also the birds are a little bit aggressive so pay attention to your food while you are on the beach.

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.

Wonderful, unspoilt islands which are well worth visiting. Ww visited in July and it was heavenly. It's well worth a bit of a walk to the left when you come off the boat to less busy beaches with even more beautiful views. There are 3 restaurants and several sets of toilets as well as a small general shop at the... More

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 any further building, litter bins and removal of anything from the island's beaches. We spend... 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 walks through the islands are very well marked with spectacular views along each. The wildflowers... 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 around the islands looking at all the fish in the clear unpolluted water. The restaurant... More
