The Cíes Islands are an archipelago located in the Vigo estuary and together with the islands of Ons, Sálvora and Cortegada, form the National Park of the Atlantic Islands. They are one of the main natural paradises of Galicia and, therefore, many pilgrims on the Portuguese Coastal Route decide to make a detour on their route to visit them.
This archipelago is made up of three islands: Monteagudo, do Faro and San Martiño (also called Norte, Del Medio and Sur, respectively). The first two are linked by Rodas Beach, considered by the prestigious British newspaper The Guardian as the best beach in the world.
In addition to this beach, on the Cíes Islands you can enjoy various nature-related activities, such as hiking, kayaking, snorkelling and stargazing.
In order to protect the natural wonders of this archipelago, entry to visitors is very limited and to access the Cíes Islands you must have authorisation from the Xunta de Galicia. This authorisation can be requested on a website set up for this purpose, where you can also apply for a camping permit.
In addition, to access the islands it is necessary to contract the trip with one of the authorised shipping companies, which make daily trips from various points along the Galician coast.
