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. Put Playa Samil into our Vigo trip itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

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
