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.

The number of visitors per day is restricted, so be sure to book in advance.

You can buy your ticket online on the websites of these three shipping companies:

Mar de Ons
Piratas de Nabia
Cruceros Rías Baixas

The bus from the conference will drop you off at the hotels at 15:45 pm approximately. Walking distance from the main hotels to the port is 5 to 10 minutes, so be sure to take a ferry that leaves the harbour at around 4:30- 5pm.  The ferry to the island takes around 1 hour so we recommend taking the last boat back at around 20:30 to give you time to enjoy, stroll and relax.
