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. PutPlaya Samil into our Vigo trip itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Playa Samil reviews
You don't really know Vigo until you have been there. It is an "urban beach", close to the city centre, with restaurants and a nice marina, big and clean. Don't miss it! more »
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 »
Its the beach...if I could get a job nearby I'd live there. Some nice cafes along the beachfront and some lovely eateries serving home-made Spanish food
Great beech with nice local restaurant's
