Playa Samil, Vigo
(4.1/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Vigo attractions like Playa Samil can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
