The Vigo estuary coastline
Explore the estuary on land and sea
From O Morrazo to Baiona, the Vigo estuary coastline is spectacular, seen either from the sea or from land. Spend part of your visit to Vigo to touring the coast, you won’t regret it.
The O Morrazo peninsula offers a very rich cultural and ethnographic heritage, as well as charming fishing villages like Cangas or Moaña. This is also where you’ll find some of the best Vigo estuary beaches: small hidden coves, ideal to enjoy with a couple.
On the other side, south of the Vigo estuary, is Baiona: the first town in the world to know of the discovery of America. Throughout the Val Miñor area, you’ll find magnificent beaches, some, like Patos Beach in Nigrán, are interesting spots for surfing in the Vigo estuary.
The spectacular San Simón Island is in the easternmost tip of the estuary, as well as the stunning Cesantes Beach, both in Redondela. A walk around this area is well worthwhile, with Rande Bridge on the horizon, indicating the exit to the sea.
You’ll be seduced by the views of the estuary from the Senda del Agua (Water Trail), a natural trail that will take you over the Rande Bridge, where you’ll see one of Vigo’s most spectacular sunsets.
