Playa Samil, Vigo

4.1
#1 of 12 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.

  • Wide beach with clean sand, with places to eat on the side, the only thing that could be said against is that parking becomes a little complicated, but without hesitation as beach I recommend it 100% 100
