Have you still not visited the beaches of Vigo? They are one of the city’s biggest attractions. The beaches of the Vigo Estuary will surprise you: they’re not like other unattractive, uncomfortable and very crowded urban beaches. 10 minutes from the centre of Vigo, its beaches have fine white sand, clear waters and for everyone’s liking: family beaches, wild coves, sandy beaches with waves for water sports and nude beaches.
In some areas of Vigo, you can walk from beach to beach along the waterfront. For example, from O Adro beach in Bouzas until the end of the long Samil beach; Vigo has miles and miles of paths to walk by the sea. In 2021, 10 of Vigo’s beaches were awarded the Blue Flag for water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety, services and facilities: O Vao, Samil, Argazada, Rodas (Islas Cíes), Figueiras (Islas Cíes), A Punta ( Teis ), Tombo do Gato,Os Muiños de Fortiñón, Canido y Fontaiña.
We prepared a wide selection of Vigo’s beaches for you. Read all about them in the Vigo Town Council Webpage.
You can also discover the gorgeous and wild beaches in Cíes, which are part of the Atlantic Islands National Park.
