Rodas Beach


Known to locals as the “Galician Caribbean,” the striking Illas Cíes are a trio of pristine islands in Spain’s northwest region of Galicia. The 3 islands lie partially exposed to the battering waves of the Atlantic Ocean, while their other sides face the Ria de Vigo, a tranquil estuary, and remains blissfully protected.
The Cíes can be reached by ferry from the town of Vigo and visitors should head to the 2 main isles, Illa do Monte Ayudo and Illa do Faro. These islands are connected by Rodas Beach, a sliver of sand embracing a sheltered lagoon.
Rodas Beach is arguably Spain’s prettiest, and its sparkling blue water and powder-white sands draw scores of tourists daily. Despite their popularity, the islands remain delightfully undeveloped — thanks to their designation as a nature preserve. Still, visitors will find a smattering of beach bars, a campground (reservations are required), a basic market and restaurant.
