Full Camino Portugues Coastal from Porto, last 200km
If you’re up for a challenge and love the idea of walking or cycling the Camino by the coast, then the full Camino Portugues Coastal, or Camino Portuguese Coastal Way, is a stunning and very scenic alternative route to the classic Portuguese Camino.
Starting in colourful UNESCO-listed Porto, this Camino trail will take you to charming seaside towns and villages in northern Portugal, along the superb Atlantic coast. Porto to Santiago is considered to be the full Route. But you can also start this route in Lisbon if you prefer.
Over the course of at least 12 days, you will stay in picturesque small cities and visit the most charming towns and villages from the coast to the mountains.
From Caminha, you will journey to A Guarda, in Galicia, and the heart of the Rías Baixas, to continue this memorable journey as it veers inland to more countryside landscapes towards Santiago de Compostela.
Discover the wild Atlantic beauty and sandy beaches of northern Portugal and southern Galicia, through the Full Camino Portugues Coastal. We highly recommend that you spend some time tasting all the delicious Portuguese food on offer, particularly seafood and local wines.
This is a wonderful alternative and quieter Camino route than the more well-known Camino Frances and you will stay in pretty fishing villages and be refreshed by the maritime feel of this scenic Coastal Camino.
Please note: the Caminho da Senda Litoral follows the coastline, while the Caminho da Costa (better signposted) weaves 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. This route has excellent reviews with many 5-star ratings.
