- We set sail towards our destination, the Cíes Islands, a true paradise made up of three islands part of the Atlantic Islands of the Galicia National Park.
- The Cíes Islands, which the ancient Romans defined as islands of the Gods, are particularly striking thanks to their richly populated seabeds and variety of scenery, alternating white dunes, steep cliffs and pine forests.
