The Cíes Islands – the pride of all Galicians

The Cíes Islands are an archipelago off the coast of Pontevedra in Galicia, in the mouth of the Ria de Vigo. They belong to the parish of San Francisco de Afora, in the municipality of Vigo. They were declared a Nature Reserve in 1980 and are included in the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park. The Cíes consist of three islands, Monteagudo, do Faro and San Martiño. They are home to one of Spain’s finest beaches, but have no cars, no hotels and visitor numbers are strictly limited. Spectacular scenery and not-so-difficult hiking trails make Cíes an ideal destination for the whole family.
