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.

  • It is a beautiful beach, but is always saturated with people. Especially in summer it is full of buses and buses of Portuguese. You have to jump over, people on the beach and in the areas of trees that are around. Yes, but not...

  • In summer tourist attraction for Portuguese and Orensanos, apart from the own premises of Vigo. Very full of people and almost no space to place the towel. Not have flag blue and is normal, because by the river lagares is pour of all less nothing good, apart from its foul smell. Not recommended

  • Very large fine sand beach. Many restaurants and bars of leisure throughout his very long promenade. In summer it must be full, but in March was an area ideal for walks or runing.
