Vigo Cies Islands Ferry reviews

  • "Wonderful Trip. Excellent Price."

    The island was beautiful, white sand, clear blue sea and beautiful trees. The Princess Cruise excursion was too expensive so I searched for ferries from Vigo. My one concern was the distance from the cruise ship to the ferry. I Emailed DF and within minutes received a very friendly reply informing me that it was a couple of minutes walk. We booked on line and paid £31 for two people. It would have cost us £122 had we gone with Princess - a saving of £91. We had a very enjoyable trip on the ferry and can thoroughly recommend Direct Ferries. Cannot comment on the catering, as we did not use it.

  • "Beautiful place"

    The trip over to the Cies Island on the ferry was excellent the ferry was fast and efficient. It costs far less than an excursion from a cruise ship. The island was beautiful and the weather good. The only downside was there wasn't enough time to enjoy the whole island, if they could extend the time ashore I would be willing to pay extra!

Vigo Guide

Iberian Spain’s most westernmost city, Vigo is situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by a spectacular mountain landscape. This historic and cultured city is steeped in tradition and is also home to Europe’s largest fishing fleet. The city centre is perfect for walks down narrow winding streets, whilst at night it comes alive with lively tapas bars, sumptuous seafood restaurants and buzzing bars and clubs.

Vigo is the gateway to Illas Cíes or the Cies Islands with ships leaving the port at least four times daily, with the crossing taking around 45 minutes. The port area has been redeveloped in recent years with a shopping mall in close proximity to the dock. However, Muelle de Transatlanticos, where the ships set from, is located just in front of the fortress city. You’ll find it a short walk down the palm tree-lined Avenida del Catillo waterfront promenade to the city centre. The terminal itself has a small amount of shops and a café with Wi-Fi connection on the first floor.


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.
