These islands are part of the Parque Nacional Marítimo-Terrestre das Illas Atlánticas de Galicia, along with Ons, Sálvora, and Cortegada, and are recognised for their unique ecosystem and environmental importance. As a protected area, they serve as a safe haven for native species and maintain their diverse biodiversity.

Our excursion to the Cíes Islands departs from the port of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo. The crossing to our destination, the beach of San Martiño, lasts approximately two hours. During this time, you can sunbathe on deck, enjoy the sea breeze, and take in the wonderful scenery of the estuary of Vigo and its coastline. Once we reach the islands, we will anchor in the beautiful, turquoise waters close to the beach, which is only accessible by private boat. For the more adventurous, there will be opportunities to snorkel and use a paddle surf board for a real aquatic adventure. Those who prefer to stay on board can relax and enjoy a picnic on deck for an hour.

In the afternoon, we will set sail to Rhodes Beach, where we highly recommend disembarking to explore the island. There are several hiking trails that lead to some of the most picturesque spots on the islands. Make your way to the iconic lighthouses and admire the spectacular, picture-perfect views that you will remember forever.
