About the Cies Islands
The Cies Islands were declared a nature reserve in 1980, due to the outstanding natural value of the area, and the deterioration human activity was causing.
Nature reserve status requires the Cies Islands to be well preserved, and any litter must be taken back to the Spanish mainland. This leaves a clean, natural area to explore and a fantastic habitat for wildlife.
As well as an immaculate landscape to explore, you'll also find beautiful white beaches with crystal clear waters in the Cies Islands, making the area perfect for families and couples alike.
Tourist facilities at the Cies Islands
Mar de Ons ferries dock at Monteagudo, where there is a supermarket, a visitor centre and a restaurant for tourists.
