Social Event: Islands of the Gods

We’re happy to announce that our social event will include a boat trip to the Cíes Islands.

Vigo’s horizon is speckled by the Cíes Islands, our marine-terrestrial park and one of the most beautiful places in Galicia. The Cíes Islands combine the most beautiful beaches of Vigo with a unique, natural environment and the most exquisite seabeds in Spain.

The Cíes Islands are the Vigo estuary’s greatest treasure: an amazing national marine-terrestrial park and one of the country’s most beautiful places, which is why the Romans named them the islands of the gods.

The Cíes archipelago is made up of three islands: Monte Agudo, O Faro and San Martiño. The first two are connected by a long strip of sand: Rodas Beach, the best beach in the world, according to  The Guardian.

The Cíes are part of the Atlantic Islands National Park, a beach paradise with crystalline waters, in a natural environment that makes it a unique wildlife observatory.

A visit to the Cíes is ideal for hiking with your family or for a getaway in search of quiet and unspoilt beaches. You can take a day boat trip to the Cíes or rent a yacht in Vigo. Or, if you prefer, spend a weekend camping in the Cíes Islands. It’s also a great place for diving in the Vigo estuary and, with a bit of luck, you can swim surrounded by arroaces (native, smaller sized dolphins).

June is the perfect time for a visit to the Islands. You can hike to the lighthouse or relax at one of the paradisiac beaches. Just bring your suntan!

Are you really going to miss this year’s IH&MMSEC ???
