Cíes Islands

The Cíes Islands are a group of three islands located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Galicia, Spain. They are part of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park and are considered some of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. The three islands are Monteagudo, San Martiño, and O Faro, with the latter being the largest.

The islands are known for their stunning white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Monteagudo is home to the main beach, Praia de Rodas, which is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The islands are also home to a variety of wildlife, including seabirds, dolphins, and sea turtles.

The islands have a long history, with evidence of human activity dating back to the Neolithic period. The Romans settled the islands and built several settlements, and the islands were later used as a base for the Spanish Armada during the 16th century.

The islands are now a popular tourist destination, with visitors coming to enjoy the stunning beaches, the wildlife, and the relaxed atmosphere. Visitors can take boat trips to explore the islands and take part in activities such as kayaking, sailing, and fishing.

The islands have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and are protected by the Atlantic Islands of Galicia National Park. The park works to preserve the islands’ unique ecology, and visitors are asked to respect the environment and take care not to disturb the wildlife.
