Portuguese Coastal Way – Full Walk: The Portuguese Coastal Way or Caminho da Senda Litoral is a stunning alternative route of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago. Following the Atlantic Coast towards Santiago de Compostela, the Portuguese Coastal Way starts in the colourful UNESCO-listed city Porto and will take you to charming seaside towns and villages in Northern Portugal before crossing by ferry to A Guarda, in Galicia, and the heart of the Rías Baixas. Discover the wild Atlantic beauty and sandy beaches of Northern Portugal and Southern Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages and be refreshed by the maritime feel of our newest Coastal Camino.
*Please note the Caminho da Senda Litoral follows the coastline, while the Caminho da Costa (better signposted) weaves heads inland at times and overlaps with the Senda Litoral in certain sections. If you happen to take the Caminho da Costa, don’t worry, the trail will take you back to the same finishing point. Check the maps and walking notes provided.
