This deluxe sailing tour starts in Vigo, the most important fishing port in Europe, which has a beautiful Ria holding the secrets of sunken treasure and historic battles. Being an important fishing port it is obvious that the area is blessed with an abundance of the freshest fish & seafood.
Oon this trip day trip you will get a chance to savor traditional Galician cuisine with a picnic-style lunch aboard the yacht. Talking about food I have to mention that this area of Galicia is also a wine region, bearing the same name, Rias Baixas. Here can found excellent full-bodied white wines made of the Albariño grape variety. Albariño wines are known as the "Wines From the Sea" because they go so well with fish & seafood.
In the Rias Baixas there are many beaches of untouched beauty, golden soft sand and clear blue water. Today we will navigate around the bay of Vigo and then out to the Cies Islands known as "The Island of the Gods", just recently these islands and few other ones further up the coast, have been declared as a national park called "The Archipelago Atlantic Islands National Park" . Here can be found all types of wild Flora & Fauna, excellent for nature hikes & walks.
They’re home to one of Spain’s finest beaches. In fact, the British journal "The Guardian", rated the "Beach of Rodas" in the Cies Islands as the best beach in the world. Cíes is now an uninhabited and pristine national park, open to the public only in summer. Galegos come here to spend long, lazy summer days on the Praia de Rodas, a perfect crescent of soft, pale sand backed by small dunes sheltering a calm lagoon of crystal-clear sea.
Locals call this their "Caribbean beach", the water is turquoise enough, and the sand white enough to believe the comparison.
