FOR SHOPAHOLICS: Catch up with your Christmas shopping. Vigo adapts to suit your pocket: from large shopping malls and exclusive boutiques for Galician fashion to small stores selling craftwork and the local gastronomy, where you can find presents for your friends and family.
FOR THE NIGHT OWLS: Vigo is the city that never sleeps, the ultimate party city. At any time of the night or day, you’ll find a place to dance, attend a concert, or just go out for drinks or sit in a terrace with friends.
FOR SEA LOVERS: Book your ticket now. This long weekend explore Cies Islands, a natural paradise with a unique fauna and flora. Fancy a trip through the Vigo estuary? Get on board the “sea buses”, a boat service that connects Vigo to the fishing towns of Cangas and Moaña, and enjoy the amazing beauty of the Galician Estuaries.
- FOR THE SPORTY: By bike or on foot, the Water Path is the route for you: running parallel to the sea and with marvellous views over the Bay of Vigo. You can also do a coastal route running from Bouzas to Toralla taking in Samil Beach. Or follow the Blue Path along the River Lagares.
