15 kilometers from Vigo, on the Atlantic coast of Galicia is where you have the chance of visiting Cies Island.
No inhabitants. Camping by permit only.
Ferries run daily from the port of Vigo.
Two lighthouses make for great, short hikes.
Cies is just one of the many reasons to visit Galicia.
A handful of little beach bars are open seasonally.
There are whispers in the community that the boats have been over selling tickets bringing more tourists to the island than it can handle.
Locals are pushing for UNESCO listing and protection.
Stay on the mainland in the small city of Vigo at Hotel Puerta Gamboa, right near the port and the sea.
But protect and respect.
You won’t regret it!
