We arrived in Vigo intending to go to Cies islands, supposed to be the best beach in the world. But trying to book through Direct ferries site was awful, their site doesn't work and their customer service was terrible. You should book with the companies who own the boats at source. As only a certain amount are allowed on each... More

The beaches of the island are beautiful! They never get crowded because tourism to the island is capped. There is a lovely campsite overlooking one of the beaches. It has all the facilities you need including bar and restaurant. There are other bars/cafes on the island. Unfortunately, the only downside is that if you are a vegetarian, meal options are... More

My favourite beach is Melide. Is the furthest away, so not crowded from Mon-Fri, beautiful view: greenery, rocks, sand, seagulls. Nudist beach. Cold water.

Highly recommended, from the quiet yet windy waters of Aldán across the Pontevedra Ría, to the beacon anchoring points at Ons main port. Beacons are assigned by internet reservation for max 48 hours. Otherwise Anchoring otherwise is illegal and may be fined. The two main restaurant have a boat transport for sailors as a courtesy.Don't miss the octopuss pot.

We took the ferry on a Sunday in August and went to the beach and hiked. It was extremely beautiful. The ferry from Portonovo cost 14 euros round trip. We drove to Portonovo and bought our tickets at the booth and there was a place to park. As the ferry approached the island there was a beautiful beach off to... More
