The Cíes Islands Passing through Vigo
The Cíes Islands form an archipelago that belongs to the municipality of Vigo in the province of Pontevedra. Vigo is also part of the Galician Rías Bajas, a coastal area of high tourist interest for its gastronomy, its beaches, its landscapes, its people and countless little things that make Vigo and its area of influence an unforgettable trip.
The only way to get to the Cíes Islands is by sea, using the passenger transport ferries that operate in and around the Ría de Vigo.
The ports with regular departures in season are: Baiona, Cangas, Vigo and also, occasionally, from Sanxenxo and Portonovo.
We want to take the opportunity to facilitate access to booking so that you can reserve your hotel before visiting the Cíes Islands.
Because it is a protected natural area, access to the park is currently limited to 2200 daily visitors plus 600 campers, it is mandatory to request an authorization in advance and it is advisable to book in advance both the passage tickets and the camping.
Once you obtain the authorization, you will have a period of 2 hours to make the reservation of the ticket, if you do not do so, the authorization will be canceled.
Remember that you can only book the ticket 90 days in advance, so you will not see some available dates.
We invite you to take Vigo as your starting point on the way to the Cíes Islands and discover the city of Vigo and its surroundings.
Currently there are regular passenger departures from Easter and Summer, as long as the weather permits. The departures take place from the maritime stations of Portonovo, Cangas, Baiona and Vigo.
