Playa Samil, Vigo

4.4
#1 of 19 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.

  • The water temperature is amazing and clean, the beach is clean and have a great view over the other islands. The only negative thing is there is no proper place to change clothes.  more »
  • A beach full of people, but has a lot of spaces left with big sand banks. Also very good to family, the water apart from cold is also clean. Very good experience!!  more »
