How to get to Cíes

Do you want to know how get to the Cíes Islands? The only way to access the Cíes is by sea. In summer and Easter, there are several shipping companies based in the port of Vigo that carry out daily boat tours to the Cíes. These ferries will take you straight to the islands of Monte Agudo and O Faro.

The Cíes have a limit of 1,800 visitors a day, so it’s advisable to book a place on the boat in advance.

The third island, San Martiño, is only accessible by private boat, which is also the only way to access the archipelago the rest of the year. Remember that an anchoring permit for your boat is mandatory in the Cíes.

If you decide to rent a boat in Vigo to visit the Cíes, check the services offered by the different companies that rent boats and enjoy an unforgettable cruise along the Vigo estuary.

Tips and recommendations: 

Most visitors stay in the stunning Rodas Beach, chosen as the best beach in the world by The Guardian. But if you have time, we recommend you visit all the Cíes Islands’ beaches, for example, Figueiras Beach.
