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.

  • Beautiful white sand, playground (basketball, skating, typical skateboard, swimming pool). Cafes. Parking. Showers and foot showers. W.C. In summer many people, despite is a very big beach. In the upper promenade. You can eat in restaurant or Cafe, or carrying food on tables of stone (if the ride). Good views. From Vigo must go by car, as all the beaches.

  • Typical Beach urban. Great morning but in the afternoon it is very difficult to park and is crowded. It has very good facilities. Sports fields, swimming pools, ride, skating rinks, area of grass, picnic tables... The problem in summer is the great conurbation. Good communication by bus but depending on the time it can be very full. Access for the disabled. Available for bathroom chairs for people with disabilities. Relief jobs

  • Incomparable views, pleasant walk along the shore as the promenade, is clean, sometimes when there are temporary sand accumulates on the promenade, but even so the ride is very pleasant and comfortable
