The Cнes Islands and archipelagos of Cortegada, Sбlvora and Ons,

belong to the National Park of Atlantic Islands of Galicia.

The ecologic value of its marine habitat is incalculable because

here there are some of the most representative examples of

Atlantic marine eco-systems.

Marine habitat of the National Park is a big mosaic of different

habitats that support an extraordinary diversity of flora and

fauna. We can find habitats defined by the European Community

like “community priority”: reefs, lagoons or sandbanks covered

all the time by no deep marine waters.

On land we can find “community priority” habitats too, likes the

grey dunes or the “aerohalins” littoral bushes or the southerner

atlantic humid “brezo” bushes.

The most important problem in the National Park conservation is

the human pressure. In Cies Islands the eucalyptus plantations,

pines and acacias have occupied the place of native plants. The

eradication of these plantations is a very long place process and

the National Park is working in and the results will be seen


Actually, it is being done actuations to develop a correct

management of the public use, the islands residues, the

navigation, the sail, etc.

NOTE: This work camp has no access for physical disabled people.


The access to the Work Camp it will be by ship from “Estaciуn
