New regulation to access the Cies Islands
If you want to visit the Islas Cies, now you need a "customized and non-transferable" authorization issued by the Xunta. This was decided by the Galician Government after the incidents last summer, at which time the overflow caused fines for the shipping companies. In Simply Galicia we detail the steps to follow to obtain it!
In this way, it is now the visitor who requests permission to access the archipelago through the reservation center enabled by the Axencia para a Modernización Tecnolóxica de Galicia (Amtega).
This platform is also accessible from mobile devices, so the shipping companies will only provide you with your ticket if you have this authorization. To get it, you must indicate the following information: name, surnames, identification document, sex and year of birth.
Once you have this permission, equipped with QR control codes, authorization number and name and surname, you can choose the shipping company with which to move. Very important! You have to buy the ticket, it is not valid just with the permission of the Xunta de Galicia. When land in the islands, you must present this authorization.
In case of staying overnight at the camping (only authorized place) and traveling in regular maritime transport, it is NOT necessary to have the authorization, since the reservation of a place in the camping includes the processing of said permission.
Now you can prepare your visit to the Cies Islands. We will wait for you!
