Lovely area to walk around go to Beaches. Advise was take a picnic which we did as not much available on island . But there is a restaurant where ferry arrives and a bar and shop at camp site as well.
If booking via hotel which we did be aware you still need to go to booking office with receipt to get tickets for ferry . Ticket office located near leaving point of ferry give yourself plenty time as very busy . Lovely day .

this beach is one of my fav. super fine white sand and a bit wilder than others as dunes being recuperated.great for shell hunting.
2 restaurants behind big parking lot/chapel with menu del dia etc.
summer offers cafe in parking and restrooms as well as special needs assistance and red cross.
popular with kite surfers.
small cafe (a bit pricey) obradoiro far right above nudist section (i know weird huh) and showers. if you keep going RIGHT (facing sea) another small beach with little rowboats.
you can also walk about 10 minutes to your LEFT to CANIDO town and mini beach with a lot of restaurants (no views aside little one at end) to do so go LEFT from VAO (looking at sea)
past bridge to enormous ugly building island.right where the bridge starts you have "villa romana" ruins if you like that kind of stuff

This is a bit of a trek from the city centre and is set in the Parque de Estrellos. The house itself is interesting and there is also a small archaeological museum attached with interesting artefacts disinterred from around the city of Vigo. The park is a pleasant place to walk and we were lucky because the sun was shining. It was a slog up to the Plaza de America where we found a taxi to return us to the city centre.

The fortress at the top of this small hill in Vigo is the icing on the cake. There are lovely Gardens going up and a very nice children´s park, as well as a cafe to stop for some refreshments, but once you get to the fortress at the top the views are simply amazing: the city of Vigo at the bottom, the sea and the estuary, the Cies Islands to the left and the cost opposite. There are different viewpoints on your way up, explore them all. The small climb up the hill will be worth it!

I was staying in Vigo and took a short bus journey to Playa Samil. Wow! It was worth it. I arrived at a beautiful beach, blue seas, white sand, peaceful and relaxing. I had lunch in one of the many restaurants along the seafront which was excellent.
Spent the day sunbathing and swimming in the most beautiful sea. Took the bus back to Vigo in the evening, a wonderful day out!

In 1665, the Castro Fortress was constructed to protect the city from continuous attacks by the British Navy. During that time, the Castro, the San Sebastian Fortress and the city wall were a strong defensive system of the city. This defensive system was not very much effective because it couldn't stop hostile interventions. At present, the fortress has become a famous tourist attraction because of beautiful Gardens, open spaces and superb views.
Getting to the top will be hard work of you are not fit.
Walking up the steps, every time you think you have finally reached the top, there are more steps set further back and then more steps. They seemed never ending!
Once at the top of the steps turn right to get to the entrance.
Admission was free.

Booked the boat over the internet. My tip here is even if youve printed your ticket you still need to go the the ticket office and collect a formal ticket so give yourself 10 min extra. The island is lovely with good walks but fairly easy going. The stars of course are the Beaches....gorgous white sand, crystal clear water (but cold) and not plenty of room. Bring your oen water and food as it's quiet exprnsive to buy on the island £2 for a small bottle of water. €£5 euros for a bocodillo.enjoy!

First time visit during our Iberian Cruise. Had read up on place before our visit and established that it had major connections with Jules Verne who featured the town and large bay in his famous novel " 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" On the seafront near the Marina is a delightful bronze statue of Captain Nemo with the Giant Squid; lovely photo moment. Vigo is a modern busy port city, famous for its fishing, especially seafood, and especially Oysters. There is a small delightful old town with a ruined castle/fort on a hill overlooking the town. Also a small but interesting fish market, both well worth a visit. Not a lot to see, but a place to spend a few hours stretching your legs on the sea front, or maybe, as we did, enjoying a scrumptious seafood lunch. There are also 3 small Islands in the bay, with lovely Beaches for those who have the time to catch the regular ferry from the Marina area

I'm supposing a bit here but this pretty spectacular sculpture in the middle of a major road really captures your attention, not good while driving I should point out, but I think it celebrates the Horse & maybe Riders ? Either way is very interesting indeed.

Impressive statue/monument located centrally in Vigo and is a very impressive work of art. As other reviewers said a tribute to the hard work of fishermen showing them reeling in a net.
