Vigo is a lively port city, which is most notable as the jumping off point for the stunning Cies Islands. The islands provide a retreat away from the city and boast several beautiful white sandy beaches. They are also good for bird watching and have several walking trails. Most visitors visit the islands on a day trip as there are limited facilities once you’re there. If you’re planning to go during the summer, make sure to book your ferry ticket in advance as visitors to the Cies Islands are limited. Back on the mainland, there are some lovely beaches south of Vigo including Samil and Vao.
