Playa Samil, Vigo

#1 of 80 in Things to do in Vigo
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Playa Samil, the main beach of Vigo, measures 1.7 km (around 1 mi). Justifiably busy during the summer, it features a popular boardwalk, swimming pools, and a small soccer field. Look out toward the Cíes Islands. At the western end, see the Lagares river enter the sea. Arrive easily here via city bus. Clubs, cafes, and museums are all located nearby. If the beach is too crowded when you get there, try walking along the coast until you find another.

  • Relaxed moments of reading on a beach of fine white sand. Refreshing baths in the waters of the Atlantic, in the morning it is calmer and then you are happy with the arrival of young people...  more »
