Islas Cies

Reviewed By cath31 - scotland

Lovely area to walk around go to Beaches. Advise was take a picnic which we did as not much available on island . But there is a restaurant where ferry arrives and a bar and shop at camp site as well.
If booking via hotel which we did be aware you still need to go to booking office with receipt to get tickets for ferry . Ticket office located near leaving point of ferry give yourself plenty time as very busy . Lovely day .

Strange weather today, a low cloud descended and stayed til late afternoon, so we decided this walk would be good to do as it was still warm. What a treat! A gentle relaxing stroll with stunning scenery. And a couple of good cafes to get a drink and rest our feet. I bet this would be great for lunch too!

Santa Tecla Celtic Village

Reviewed By chickandbeast - Durham, Canada

Amazing ruins of an ancient tribal village spanning the slopes of a mountain in Northern Spain. Santa Tecla Celtic Village clearly displays celtic village life.
The uncovered ruins are a sight to see obviously each hut is connected to the group sharing a partial circular wall. They appear similar in size bases constructed of local stone with central gathering areas.
Couple of hours for sure to walk among the ruins and take in the areas sights.

We got a map from our hotel that included a guided walk in the old city. We did that and it is something that we recommend that you do if you visit this city. The walk was about 2 hours and gave us a perfect picture of this medieval part of Pontevedra.

Wow, the Cies Islands are absolutely GORGEOUS. Lush greenery, blue water, white sand. So picturesque! I spent a lot of time hiking around the area and saw some amazing views. Chilling on the beach was very relaxing as well. One of the best parts of my trip.

Good for playing sports when the tide is low! But when the tide is high the beach can get a bit too crowded!

Reviewed By Trekbud - Loughborough, United Kingdom

This is a really lovely to beach to walk along. It gets busy in good weather, especially at weekends, but it feels a bit like it is part of a nature reserve as there are very few buildings on the sea front. Good Surfing waves. This is not the med!

What a lovely waterfall in a remote country location. Not well sign-posted, but easy enough to eventually get to. Wear good walking shoes as some bits are steep or slippery as you walk to the falls. So glad the proprietors of Casa dos Cregos told us about this hidden gem.

Fortaleza de Monterreal

Reviewed By Williamrush - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Some of the reviews here are confusing. That is because what was once an ancient fort is now a luxury hotel called the Parador. We are staying there and it is wonderful. But imagine that all the walls, towers, turrets and amazing walks and settings around where the fort was, are open to the public and free. It is still beautiful and absolutely worth the trip and walk. It’s a 10-12 minute walk from the village of Baiona where you will find shops and very nice taverns. You could explore the grounds here for an hour or two. I believe there is also a paid tour, but we did not do it. Must visit!

Great beach, especially during the week - on weekends it can be a bit crowded. Clean, white sand. The bar at the beach is great and the people who run it are wonderful. Plenty of hammocks, chairs, umbrellas to rent, as well as paddle boats.
