Cíes Islands ferries Best deals to the Cíes Islands on MrFerry

The Cíes Islands are a Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Galicia.

The archipelago consists of three islands: Monteagudo in the north, Illa do Faro in the center, and San Martiño in the south. The first two islands are connected by a thin strip of sand, which emerges only at low tide.

This is an area protected by Galicia's Atlantic Islands National Park, and if you're thinking of including a visit to the Cíes Islands in your next trip, it's good to know some information before booking your ferry ticket.

🚢 The ferry connections to the Cíes Islands.

The only way to reach the Cíes Islands is by sea. Ferry connections take about 40 minutes to reach the Cíes, which can be visited year-round: during the summer, several departures a day are made from different ports on the Galician coast, while during the winter, departures are concentrated on weekends and holidays.

The shipping companies that provide maritime service to the Cíes Islands are  Naviera Nabia and Mar de Ons.

The main and active year-round routes are:

→ Cangas
Vigo 

During the summer and on busy days, departures are added from the ports of Moaña, Baiona, and Portonovo.

✔️ How to book the ferry to the Cíes Islands.

It is very important to book a ferry ticket to the Cíes Islands, since the number of entrances to the Atlantic Islands Park is limited by local authorities in order to preserve the territorial riches of this beautiful territory.

For this reason, in high season and during the busiest days, it is necessary to apply for a permit, and availability tends to run out very often as the departure approaches.

By booking your ticket in advance with MrFerry, you will not have to worry about making the authorization request for the day of your visit! You will receive directly by e-mail the QR code to present at the port in paper or digital format, along with the confirmation number (localizador) of the selected shipping company.

Please note: If you stay for more than one day on the Cíes Islands, you will be provided with a pre-authorization code by your lodging. Email or call our customer service department to complete your reservation request.

🛎️ Services available in the Cíes Islands

Once you disembark from the ferry, you will find yourself in an earthly paradise, inhabited only by park rangers! Because of this, services are essential, but are still provided on days when ferry crossings take place.

The embarkation and disembarkation pier (called Muelle de Rodas) is located on Monteagudo Island, the northernmost. Nearby you will find an information point, a restaurant, restrooms, and a health care center.

A footbridge will lead you onto Illa do Faro, where the campsite is located. Here you will find a restaurant, bar and a larger information center, which provides space for exhibitions and conferences and where activities are organized for the whole family. Further south, you will find an additional restaurant and sandwich shop.

Cíes Islandsferries About Cíes Islands

The Cíes Islands are undoubtedly the most visited attraction in the Galician Islands Park. If the Atlantic coasts aren't exactly renowned for beach tourism, here, just a few minutes away by ferry, is a paradise of white beaches nestled among green pine and eucalyptus forests

🏖️ A short walk from the pier, you'll find Praia das Rodas, the largest and most important beach in the archipelago because it connects the two islands of Monteagudo and Illa do Faro. It was included by the Guardian among the most beautiful beaches in the world in 2007. Further north, we also suggest you visit Praia de Figueriras, which is smaller but still very striking because of the contrast between the deep green of the pine forest, the white of its fine sand, and a clear turquoise sea.

🌲 In addition to enjoying the sun and a swim in its crystal-clear waters (when the Atlantic temperature allows!), trekking and walking along the trails are among the most exciting activities to do in the Cíes. These will take you to discover the whole archipelago on foot, among its forests and along the rocky coasts overlooking the sea. Not to be missed, is the route to the Faro de Cíes, from which you can admire a spectacular 360-degree view of the entire archipelago.

Some useful information for your reservation:

  • no pets are allowed in the Cíes Islands, except guide dogs.

  • no vehicles are allowed to disembark, not even bicycles.

  • round-trip reservation ticket is mandatory.

The Cíes Islands are also accessible by wheelchair, but it is advisable to make sure that the ship is used to transport passengers with reduced mobility (contact us for more information)
