One day Sailing Trip to Ons Islands
This sailboat day trip is to the Ons Islands archipelago, part of the Atlantic Islands National Park. The archipelago is made up of two islands;
the largest, which gives its name to the archipelago, and Onza (also called Onceta), smaller and uninhabited, to the south of the main island. They are located at the
mouth of the Pontevedra estuary, functioning as a natural wall that protects the estuary from the rush of the ocean. As in Cíes, the west face, where the sea hits with
all its force, is abrupt and offers no possibilities for anchoring. The east face, however, has small beaches, the access pier to the island, and the neighborhoods
where the settlers live.
From the ports of Sanxenxo or Portonovo to Ons there are about 6 nautical miles, and from Combarro about 11. In either case, leaving at 11:00 and anticipating the
return for 19:00, it is a comfortable distance for sail and reach the islands around noon. What to do once anchored in our sailboat in the Ons Islands? Difficult answer:
maybe sunbathing on deck and taking a refreshing swim? Maybe going down to the beach with the boat's tender? Maybe taking a walk around the island? And why not
everything? It is your day.
Our advice is that you bring your own picnic: some omelettes, fruit or sandwiches. Our sailboat has a refrigerator, as well as a kitchen in case you
also want to heat something. If you prefer, there are also a couple of restaurants on the island.
In the afternoon, we begin our return to port with the deep satisfaction of having made a fabulous day trip on a sailing boat to the Ons Islands.
