The last stretch of the Portuguese Coastal Camino or Caminho da Costa starts in the elegant seaside town of Baiona, in the heart of the Rías Baixas, famous for its Albariño white wine and delicious shellfish. This is a superb coastal Camino route, ideal for the Summer months. Visit the Monte Real castle, stroll along the port and go for a swim in the bay before you start your journey to Santiago. From Baiona, you will follow the coast towards Vigo, enjoying the views of the magnificent Illas Cíes and Vigo Bay.
The Portuguese Coastal Way joins the classic Camino Portugues in the town of Redondela and it is here where you will start meeting fellow pilgrims. You will continue your Camino de Santiago passing many small hamlets as well as the village of Arcade (famous for its oysters), lovely historic Pontevedra, the spa town of Caldas de Reis, Padrón (home of the famous peppers) and finally Santiago de Compostela where you can get your ‘Compostela’ certificate!
