Samil Beach, the centric beach of Vigo, Spain

The Samil Beach is located in the city of Vigo, in Galicia, north-west Spain.

Samil Beach is a very central beach, and because of that very well connected with public transport and surrounded by restaurants hotels and bars. The beach has lifeguard while the high season, handicapped access, bath foot, showers, playground area, parking lots, a promenade with water fountains, and in general all the services you can need to spend a day at the beach.

Because of its popularity, the beach is very crowded, and this may be a disadvantage. To find a free place in the parking lot may be near to impossible depending on the hour of the day.

Regarding the parking lot, it is important to note that sometimes at very crowded days you may found particulars “helping” you to park your car, indicating you where you can find a free slot passing to your car. Those particular are not employees or related in any way to the beach, but the tradition says that if you are parking where they say, you have to give them a little tip.

There is also the black legend that if accept the indications of this particulars to park but you don’t tip, then your car may result slightly damaged (maybe scratched) while you are at the beach. In all my years visiting the Samil beach this did not happen but the black legend is there.

Direct at the promenade that surrounds the beach you can find bars and restaurants like the Marina Cies Beach. The prices here are a little higher than in a normal bar in Vigo, but in return you will have spectacular view of the beach while drinking something fresh.

You may eat at the Marina Cies Beach or if you are in a budget there are also fast food restaurants in the nearby, like a McDonalds o a KFC.

  1. el único problema de esta playa, es que al ser tan céntrica, los fines de semana está masivamente ocupada.

    esto hace que encontrar aparcamiento, o consumir algo en los bares o restaurantes cercanos sea una pesadilla. incluso encontrar dónde tender la toalla puede ser difícil.

    sin embargo, entre semana, o en temporada baja si el tiempo acompaña, es una playa estupenda, con todos los servicios.


    The only problem with this beach is that being so central, on weekends it is massively occupied. this makes it a nightmare to find parking, or to consume something in nearby bars or restaurants. Even finding where to lay the towel can be difficult. however, during the week, or in the low season if the weather is good, it is a great beach, with all the services.
