Traghetti San Simón Port connections and services

The island of San Simón, together with the island of San Antón, connected by a bridge, and other small islets, is part of the San Simón Archipelago, at the mouth of the Ria de Vigo in southern Galicia.

Occupied and exploited over the centuries by different peoples for the most diverse purposes, this small uninhabited island today has been converted by local authorities into a protected space and declared a "property of cultural interest" in 1999.

🚢 How to get to San Simón Island by ferry.

The port of San Simón Island is connected to the ports of Vigo and Cangas, both located on the southern shore of the Ria de Vigo estuary.

The two ferry companies that reach San Simón are Naviera Nabia and Mar de Ons, which operate all connections in Galicia's Atlantic Islands archipelago.

Sailings from Vigo and Cangas to San Simón run mainly from May to October, with a frequency of 2 to 5 sailings per week from each port.

During the off-season, occasional ferry crossings are made during holidays or special events.

San Simón About San Simón

With ferries to San Simón Island you will reach an enigmatic place, permeated with the history and culture of the peoples who occupied it, from Roman times to the Civil War, passing through Knights Templar, pirates and Franciscan monks.

While in the early centuries San Simón was chosen as a place of worship and prayer, with the founding of a monastery in the 12th century, following the sacking by the privateer Francis Drake the island suffered a gradual decline, eventually becoming a lazaret between the 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1936 it was used as a concentration camp for political prisoners, and by 1955 it was converted into an orphanage and shelter for families in need.

Visiting San Simón today, you will find among its buildings the obvious traces of its troubled past, but also an atmosphere of optimism and innovation: in recent decades, in fact, the island has been recovered with the design of gardens, green areas, libraries and auditoriums, as well as the constant promotion of musical, cultural and scientific interest events. It is no coincidence that San Simón is known today as "the Island of Thought" and will be proposed in the years to come as a meeting point for thinkers and intellectuals.

👉 Some useful information for your reservation:

  • Pets, except guide dogs, are not allowed on the Cíes Islands;

  • No vehicles are allowed to disembark, not even bicycles or the like;

  • Some areas are off limits to visitors: you will be able to access the indoor and outdoor gardens and areas explicitly open to the public, such as the Church of San Simón.
