Welcome to Illas Cíes

The Cíes are perfect for lolling on sandy beaches, such as the 1km-long, lagoon-backed crescent of Praia das Rodas, or nudist Praia das Figueiras. The islands are also great for walking and exploring: trails such as the Ruta Monte Faro lead to some spectacular high lookouts. While the eastern coasts are relatively gentle, the western sides drop away dramatically in sheer cliffs.

The islands are vehicle-free and their nature pristine, but you won't be alone. Up to 3000 visitors are allowed at one time and this limit is often reached in July and August.
