Cies Island Day Tour from Santiago de Compostela
The Romans called the Cíes Islands in Galicia, 'the islands of the Gods', and to this day they are an idyllic paradise in northern Spain where you can enjoy walks to two different lighthouses, scuba diving and beach-time. When you see them for yourself you'll understand why their main beach was chosen as the best in the world by The Guardian newspaper. Heaven on earth? If not, then this is close.
To protect the environment and avoid mass tourism, access to visitors is limited to 2,200 people per day. During Easter week, at weekends in May and throughout the summer, there are regular boat services from Vigo, Baiona and Cangas de Morrazo. During the Summer they are day tours leaving from Santiago de Compostela to go to the Cies Island but you'll need to book them early.
