Playa Samil, Vigo

4.2
#1 of 18 in Outdoors in Vigo
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.

  • It is impressive the infrastructures that have throughout the city of Vigo, I was impressed since I had never seen it that on the Mario promenade of the beach of Samil there is a public pool and no cost for children up to twelve years, to see if they learn other town halls. Also in the city center there are steep streets and have set up escalators. It was the first time I'd been there and I loved it. The food and its people are also spectacular. 'll

  • it is a beach near the city with white sand and an amazing promenade, where you will find restaurants and ice cream shops. Perfect for walking as it is long and to play children.
