The Portuguese Coastal Way or Caminho da Costa
This is a stunning alternative route of the Portuguese Camino de Santiago (#caminhoportugues). Following the Atlantic Coast towards Santiago de Compostela, this Way starts in the colourful UNESCO-listed city of 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 Galicia, taste delicious seafood and wine, stay in fishing villages and feel refreshed by the maritime feel of our newest Coastal Camino. Read more Portuguese Coastal Way Camino articles on our blog. You can walk the full Portuguese Coastal Way in just under 2 weeks; or 1 week if you are cycling. You can also choose to do a section of the route and pic your starting point.
Please note, in order to get your Compostela pilgrim certificate in Santiago you will need to walk a minimum of 100kms into Santiago (we suggest you start in Baiona) or cycle at least the last 200kms of the route (we suggest you start in Porto).
