Located in the Spanish bay of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cies archipelago is one of the most beautiful places of the country, which tourists often call «paradise place». It consists of only three islands:
- Monteagudo (North).
- Faro (Middle).
- San Martiño (South).
Each of them is very popular with tourists due to the white manicured beaches, crystal clear sea water, and very rich tropical vegetation.
How to get to the islands?
The optimal way – a small boat trip by speed catamaran or ferry. The ports of the islands take direct flights from Vigo, Bayona and Cangas. On average, the trip takes no more than half an hour. The advantage of this option is the low cost of ferry tickets, as well as the beauty of the journey – during the crossing you can enjoy the beautiful nature of the Spanish coast.
What are the islands interesting?
The islands of the Cies are worth exploring as a whole, as they create a unique picture of natural beauty. Each of them grows lush greenery, much of which is made up of very rare plants. The peculiarity is also the fact that all these natural riches are practically untouched by man – you will not find huge hotels, shopping and entertainment complexes, colorful restaurants on the islands.
Trip to Cies is worth it when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the pristine beauty of this world. For accommodation tourists are offered small hotels and tent camps with quite comfortable conditions and a unique beach holiday atmosphere.
There are many hiking trails along the most beautiful places on the islands. However, to fully enjoy the enchanting beauty of the archipelago, it is worth taking a trip by water. At the local small ports you can rent a yacht or go on a small cruise on a tourist ferry, equipped with everything you need for a good rest.
