Playa Samil, Vigo
(4.1/5 based on 1,000 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.

  • To get to this amazing beach is like taking a dip in the scene from the movie "the doors" in which Morrison and Manzareck decide to call their group in honor of Huxley ... Or Blow with Deep ... In short, California 60-70 years

  • A really beautiful beach, with very good communication bus to the city centre and only a 30-minute walk.

  • for a person who has traveled and seen many beach areas, having this in your own town, just 10 minutes from the Centre, is a luxury.
