About the boat trip

Around 50 minutes from Vigo and 25 minutes from Meirande (Redondela).


The organization cannot be held responsible for the audience missing the boat. The organization will try to put whoever misses their transport turn in another boat, but you must be warned that if the next trips are full we cannot promise to look for a place because we will fail to comply with capacity.

No, the boat trip to San Simón has an entrance and exit schedule that we must follow due to possible capacity problems in the passenger boat..

The festival has, only for justified urgency cases, a boat for the audience. The organization will analyze any need at this respect.

About the festival

Very important: for security purposes, the organization has to register the bags and you cannot come to the island with glass containers or cans. You cannot also bring metal forks, knives and penknives –you can bring plastic services. For the same reasons, we must take the stoppers of the bottles.

Under the current legislation, we must execute a register of the bags before entering the island. To speed up the process, we ask the audience to have their bags accessible and open. Thank you for your collaboration!

Besides, as in other protected islands –Ons or Cíes islands– we ask the audience visiting San Simón with food and plastic containers to collaborate by picking up and leaving the litter in the bins of each port –Meirande and Vigo–.

You can only take photos if you take them with no profit motive in mind and always protecting the privacy of the rest of the audience.

For basic security purposes, you cannot swim in the island, as it is a rocky area with changing tides. For this reason, you cannot arrive by non-official boats either.

To Sinsal SON Estrella Galicia, it is important to bring comfortable clothes, that allow being fresh in the heat and warm at the last hours of the day, at sunset. Many people bring towels or mats so they can sit and lie on the floor in a more comfortable way. It is also important protecting yourself from the sun with sunglasses, hats or sun cream.
