A paradise place with wild beaches, crystal clear water and fine white sand awaits you: the Cíes Islands.
Within the national park Parque Nacional de las Illas Atlánticas lies this island group consisting of the three islands Monte Agudo, O Faro and San Martiño. The first two are connected by an impressive sandy beach of more than 1 km (Playa de Rodas).

The islands can only be reached by boat, either by ferry or private boat:

The ferries take you to the islands ‘Isla del Faro’ and ‘Isla Monte Agudo’, ‘San Martiño’ is only accessible by private boat.
- Under this link vigoturismo.org you can find various boat companies, which rent private boats in `Vigo’. You only need to have an anchor approval. In private boat you can visit the islands throughout the year.
