  • The Vao beach is one of the emblematic beaches of Vigo. Samil beach is the most famous, for my taste the Vao Beach brings together qualities as sheltered location, calm waters for swimming, suitable for all kinds of visitors, Super clear quality (fine, white) sand, and views to the island of Toralla or own Ria. It has a suitable for any purpose trip, recreation or for sports (running, for example). On weekends it can be something more complex find parking despite having areas designated in the immediate surroundings. About the same (attached) of a beach Fontaina, which is an unofficial nudist beach, since by its topography between rocks, it promotes this use.

  • Large numbers of young people come to this beach of fine sand white, opposite the island of Toralla, to spend the day. Highly recommended and clear waters.

  • Good place to relax in the Sun where it is very quiet in the Ria de Vigo, with very good access and parking on the beach
