15 kilometers from Vigo, on the Atlantic coast of Galicia is Cies Island.
No inhabitants. Camping by permit only.
Ferries run daily from the port of Vigo.
Two lighthouses make for great, short hikes.
A handful of little beach bars are open seasonally.
There are whispers in the community that the boats have been over selling tickets bringing more tourists to the island than it can handle.
Locals are pushing for UNESCO listing and protection.
