Sand as fine as powder, waters as shiny as turquoise and sunrises that wash the sky with unimaginable golden hues, Cíes Islands of Galicia, Spain are like a picture-perfect copy of Seychelles, in the middle of Europe. The trio of islands here is a national park now and you can only stay for a week maximum. There are no cars or hotels and you can only camp here. Rodas beach is the main beach here and also the one voted as the best beach in the world. There are only 2,200 people allowed on the islands at any given time, so you have to book a spot for yourself before you reach there.
Best time to visit: April to July
How to reach: There are flights from New Delhi to Vigo (round trip airfares start from ₹60,452). From Vigo, during Easter week, at weekends in May and throughout the summer, there are regular boat services that take you to Cíes Islands.
