I was pleasantly surprised that the Atlantic part remains very unspoilt indeed. From the tourist perspective the Ria de Vigo would have been much better visited about 20 years ago as there is much new building but it is mostly houses and it is good that a previously impoverished area is attracting people back. It is far from having the horrendous effect on the scenery that has been witnessed on Spain's southern coasts. The view of the Islas Cíes as the bus turns up the Ria must be the best available when the boats to them are not running; i.e. outside the season.
