We would like to present a route through the Cíes Islands, which form part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia, and where, according to the English newspaper The Guardian, lies one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: the beach fo Rodas.
Take to sea on this adventure and prepare your eyes for the marvellous Atlantic landscape.
In 1997, the British newspaper The Guardian published the “Top Ten beaches in the world”. Among them was Rodas, on the Cíes Islands. The fame of this paradise at the entrance of the estuary of Vigo was already known to locals and visitors, but since then it has become a benchmark for tourists from all over the world.
Surrounded by native trees, this shell-shaped beach is 1.3 km long, the sand is fine and white and the waters are turquoise, making it the perfect scene for feeling freedom, the sea and nature.
Vigo, Cangas and Baiona are the three ports from which, in the high season, the catamarans sail for the archipelago. It is, of course, well worth making this trip of under an hour. During this time you will be accompanied by the swaying boat from a privileged seat on one of the upper decks, while the fresh breeze surrounds you in this fantastic viewpoint in the Atlantic Ocean. During the crossing you can make the most of the time to discover the largest villages on the coastline of Pontevedra and the unmistakable profile of Vigo.
At the end of the day, say farewell to this haven of peace and life while the sea around the Cíes blends in with the red skies, and only the wake of your boat joins you to this paradise on earth.
