In the unspoiled environment of the Cies Islands, it would be unthinkable not to have a place where nudism were allowed. This beach is not as spectacular or famous as its neighbour Rodas, but maybe because of that is much quieter.

Figueiras nude beach (Cies Islands, Galicia)

How to get there

Cies Islands are an archipielago formed by three small islands on the entrance of the Vigo estuary, part of the National Park of Atlantic Islands. The most remote is San Martino, only accessible by private boats, provided you get the allowance. The two other (Faro and Monteagudo) are joined by the Rodas beach. There are several companies that link daily these islands with Vigo and Cangas. The National Park limits the number of visitors, so in summertime it is advisable to book in advance.
Figueiras beach is in Monteagudo island, to the right of the small pier. A marked path leads to it after a short walk.

The beach

The most remarkable is the incredibly white sand and the calm and cristal clear water, what makes you think of the Caribbean. However, if you enter the sea, usually below 14ºC, you quickly remember you are in the Atlantic.
The beach is surrounded by the pine grove that covers a large part of the island. The path goes between the trees to the south of the beach, the wider section. On the other end, we find a very secluded cove after a rocky promontory.

There is only a bar and a shop in the campsite located on Faro island, quite far from Figueiras.


Is more a clothes-optional than a nude beach, but nudism is normal in the north half. There is a peaceful coexistence between nudists and textiles.

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
