Discover one of Galicia's best kept secrets with this tour to the Cíes Islands from Santiago de Compostela. Rugged cliffs and turquoise await!
Cíes Island Tour
After picking you up at 9:30 am from Praza de Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, we'll set off for Vigo. Once there, we'll board a boat and sail to the Cies Islands, a beautifully wild archipelago belonging to the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park.
We'll anchor on the island of Monteaguado, next to Rodas Beach, an stunning stretch of sand that was declared the best beach in the world by The Guardian in 2007. You'll soon understand why!
You'll have free time on the island to explore at your leisure. You can take any of the trails scattered across the island, which will lead the Cíes Lighthouse and to the viewpoint of Alto do Príncipe, a 122-meter high drop which offers dizzying views of the archipelago.
On the paths, you'll see different types of plants and wildlife native to these Atlantic islands. Keep eyes peeled for plants like gorse, broom, asparagus, and torvisco and bird including cormorants, turtledoves and gannets.
Finally, we'll take the boat back to Vigo, where we'll disembark and get on a minibus back to the starting point in Santiago. Arrival is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
