Islas Cíes

Islas Cíes Review

The Cíes Islands, 35 km (21 miles) west of Vigo, are a nature reserve and one of the last unspoiled refuges on the Spanish coast. Starting on weekends in May and then daily from June 15–September 15, Naviera Mar de Ons (986/225272 www.mardeons.com) runs about eight boats from Vigo's harbor (subject to weather conditions), returning later in the day, for the round-trip fare of €18. The 45-minute ride brings you to white-sand beaches where birds abound, and the only land transportation is your own two feet: it takes about an hour to cross the main island.
