Cangas ferry port in Spain connects you with Cies Islands in Spain with a choice of up to 28 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Cangas to Cies Islands crossing is from 1 hour and the crossing is operated by Mar de Ons.
On the zig-zagging south coast of a peninsula in the Pontevedra region of Spain sits the small town of Cangas. This port-side settlement is blessed with a curving, palm-lined seafront and a quaint network of downtown streets that slowly rise towards the steep countryside further inland.
The port of Cangas found to the west of town juts out into the wide Vigo Ria estuary of the Atlantic Ocean, across which can be seen the major city of Vigo close to the border of Portugal. The port's ferry terminal sits on a small pier to one side of a busy marina that overlooks the cobalt blue waters of the sea-wall sheltered bay.
The terminal building itself consists of a tourist information centre and a coach depot from which passengers can embark on a winding trip across the verdant mountain terrain of Pontevedra. There is also a small shop kiosk at the entrance to the port selling light snacks and refreshments.
As there is no nearby train station, travelling to and from Cangas is largely facilitated by coaches that offer routes to the surrounding cities of Vigo and Pontevedra. A taxi-rank can be located just outside the port too, while motorists can follow the PO-551 road that snakes along the coast of the peninsula to reach locations deeper into the Spanish mainland.
Two services currently operate from the port multiple times throughout the day. One route operated by both Naviera Nabia and Mar de Ons ferries whisk passengers on the short westwards journey out the mouth of the Vigo Ria estuary and to the small Cies Islands, while another Mar de Ons service travels in the opposite direction to the rugged San Simon Island under an hour away.
