- The Cíes Islands is one of the essential excursions for all those who visit the Rías Baixas and Galicia.
- You can visit them all year round but we recommend you to make this excursion outside the summer months of July and August to enjoy them in all their splendor.
- In these dates you will be able to enjoy without noise, surrounded by nature and paradisiacal beaches without crowds.
- This is a unique experience where you will be able to know the whole archipelago of the Cíes Islands formed by three islands.
- This is an authentic paradise with fine white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, which are part of a National Park.
- We will sail around the back of the islands to observe their spectacular cliffs.
- We will anchor at the southern island, known as San Martiño Island, accessible only by private boat.
- We will go down to the Rhodes pier to take a walk or go down to Rhodes Beach (listed by The Guardian newspaper as the best beach in the world).
- All this while enjoying the navigation along the Ría de Vigo and its beautiful coastline on the way to and from the port.
- The activities that we recommend once you get to the island are the hiking trails.
- For this last activity there are four main itineraries, all of them signposted.
- This is an exclusive way to discover such a precious treasure.
- Take walks on the beach, bring food from home and have a picnic.
- You can also take a dip in the crystal clear waters, although they are quite cold!
