Playa Samil, Vigo

4.1
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. Put Playa Samil into our Vigo trip itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This beach is very nice. Unfortunately, it gathers a crowd of people which is aglutinent on each other. The water is very cold. Too bad.

  • Nice to walk, but not for bathing beach if you don't like the very cold water. There are two pools in the promenade, for children, with lifeguards.
