Description

The Portuguese Coastal Way Easy, walk at your own speed

The Portuguese Coastal Way, or Camino Portugués de la Costa, is a fairly recent route that starts in Porto and follows coastal trails towards Santiago de Compostela. 

The route goes all along the coast up to the Galician border, almost in parallel with the inland Portuguese Camino. In Redondela, both Caminos join together on the same path.

The Portuguese Coastal Way Easy tour divides every walking day in two, so that you can walk your Camino at a more relaxing speed. You will start in Baiona, a beautiful town in the Rías Baixas.

Walk in your own time end enjoy the magnificent views of the Atlantic coast that this route has to offer.

Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival in Baiona, start of the last 100 km of the Portuguese Coastal Way.

Day 2: Baiona– Nigrán (8 km)

The route begins in Baiona, the first town in Europe to receive news about the discovery of America. The caravel La Pinta arrived in its port when it came back from the new continent.

The walk will take you by the beaches of Nigrán, from where you’ll be able to see the magnificent Cíes Islands.

Day 3: Nigrán - Vigo (17 km)

The landscape will become more urban as you get into Vigo, Galicia’s most populated city. Once there, you can walk around the city or relax in one of its beautiful beaches or its ‘terrazas’ by the sea.

Day 4: Vigo – Redondela (15 km)

As you leave the city of Vigo, you will have impressive views of its beautiful estuary on the left.

This walking day is light, so take the opportunity to relax in one of the many beaches you come across from Vigo to Redondela.

Day 5: Redondela – Pontevedra (20 km)

From this point on, the path will be the same as the traditional Portuguese Camino, so you will find more fellow Pilgrims on the way.

We recommend stopping in Pontesampaio, a village with an interesting history: there, you will be able to cross its Roman bridge over the Verdugo river, the same one that Andalusian ruler Almanzor crossed in 977, on his way to sack Compostela.

This leg of the journey ends in Pontevedra, a town famous for its beautiful historical quarter.

Day 6: Pontevedra – Barro (11 km)

After leaving Pontevedra, you will walk amongst woods and streams. From this point until you reach Santiago, you will walk through rural areas.

When you reach Barro, take the chance to visit the Natural Park of the Barosa River with its waterfalls and mills.

Day 7: Barro - Caldas de Reis (12 km)

Your destination for the day is Caldas de Reis, a town famous for its thermal spring waters and spa resorts.

Day 8: Caldas de Rei – Padrón (19 km)

This stretch passes peacefully through small villages, with dispersed houses along the route.

Padrón is a town of great significance on the Camino: it was the first place on land spotted by the boat that carried the remains of Saint James the Apostle. The town is also the birthplace of great authors such as Rosalía de Castro or Camilo José Cela.

Day 9: Padrón – Teo (12 km)

This path will take you through rural landscapes as in the previous days. Today you will pass Iria Flavia and the church of Santa María a Maior, one of the oldest in Galicia.

Day 10: Teo – Santiago (12 km)

As you approach Santiago, the landscape will become more urban.
When you get to the city of the Apostle do not forget to go to the Pilgrim’s Office with your Pilgrim Passport to get your Compostela!

Day 11:

Your last day with us! We hope that you have a wonderful trip and you make many memories as you walk by Galicia’s beautiful coast!
