Cangas Guide

The small town of Cangas sits on the Pontevedra peninsula on the zig zagging south coast of Spain. There are sailings from the port to two different destinations, Cies Islands and San Simon Island. These services are provided by Naviera Nabia and Mar de Ons.

What’s there to do in Cangas?
This portside settlement is blessed with a curving, palm-lined seafront and a quaint network of downtown streets, that slowly rise towards the steep countryside further inland. The region is full of natural beauty with the mountains, steep valleys, Los Beyos Waterfall and the Covadonga lakes on the town’s doorstep. It’s the perfect area for hiking and adventure sport lovers and the impressive Buferrera Mines, near the lakes, are well worth a visit. Even the architecture is to be admired with the beautiful Roman Bridge and Church of the Assumption of Cangas de Onís.

What transport links are available?
As there is no nearby train station, travelling to and from Cangas is largely facilitated by coaches that offer routes to the surrounding cities of Vigo and Pontevedra. A taxi-rank can be located just outside the port too, while motorists can follow the PO-551 road that snakes along the coast of the peninsula to reach locations deeper into the Spanish mainland.

What about the port?
Two services currently operate from the port multiple times throughout the day. One route operated by both Naviera Nabia and Mar de Ons ferries whisk passengers on the short westwards journey out the mouth of the Vigo Ria estuary and to the small Cies Islands, while another Mar de Ons service travels in the opposite direction to the rugged San Simon Island under an hour away. The San Simon Island service operates twice weekly.


Cies Islands Guide

The Cies Islands comprise a trio of Spanish gems boasting some of the finest beaches in Galicia, lying a short ferry ride from the port town of Vigo. Sailings to the archipelago usually take around 40-45 minutes, running up to four times daily, making them a popular daytrip destination.

Pristine and vehicle-free, the Cies Islands represent one of the best choices for nature-lovers looking for a slice of untouched Spain. Whiling the days away on immaculate sandy beaches is the biggest draw, with the crescent-shaped Praia das Rodas stretching for one glorious kilometre.

Tired of sunbathing? Challenge yourself and the family along one of the many hiking trails, the most popular being the Ruta Monte Faro. This route displays the very best scenery the Cies Islands have to offer, also taking you atop the most breath-taking viewing points.
