How should we behave in the Park?
Standards of performance in the Islas Cies
For the endurance of the terrestrial and marine ecosystems of the stunning National Park of the Atlantic islands of Galicia in general, and of Islas Cies in particular, we must remember that it is not permitted:

- Camping outside the bounded and conditioned places.
- Access areas marked as "not available" to the public.
- Disturb, injure, capture or kill the animals.
- Pull out, cut or damage the vegetation (remember that there are endemic species and of great importance).
- Any activity that destroy, damage or upset the unique natural elements.
- Destroy or alter elements of archaeological, historical or geological interest, both terrestrial and marine.
