Ons Island too, on Sunday, May 7, mothers travel for FREE!

Ons Island too! Given the great reception of our Mother’s Day promotion for free travel to the Cíes Islands we extend this exclusive #PiratasdeNabia promotion to Ons Island. Again, a very special gift for ALL mothers, whatever their family configuration. Directly, FREE of charge, without raffles.
Mother’s Day is celebrated this year on May 7, Sunday (in Spain). The Romans copied this celebration from the Greeks and called it Hilaria. It took place on March 15 at the temple of Cibeles (at that time there were no madridistas celebrating there 😉
In Norway they are very original, they celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of February. The most feminist are some “Eastern” countries, which celebrate Mother’s Day on March 8, which is also Working Women’s Day. It must be that Albanian, Romanian, Bosnian, Macedonian, Serbian, Montenegrin and Uzbek children are a lot of work. LOL.
With us, Portugal, that wonderful neighbor, Andorra, also a neighbor, and other countries a little farther away such as Angola or South Africa, celebrate Mother’s Day on the same date.
If May 7th has been a wonderful day chosen by many mothers to travel FREE to Cíes, it will also be a wonderful day for the stragglers who want to travel FREE to Ons Island.

Limited seating, best to reserve

Ons Island belongs to the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia. As the Cíes Islands have a limited number of visitors, Piratas de Nabia always recommends its customers to book their tickets for Mother’s Day (and other excursions) as soon as possible, avoiding being left without a place when the park is full, as has happened during some days of Easter, the May Day holiday or this Sunday in Cíes.

You can book your tickets on this website.
