This was a big day at 27 km, but it was also my favorite day’s walk. The official Camino route goes inland through hills, but there is an alternative coastal route that is not so well way-marked but a beautiful day by the sea.
I left while it was still dark and walked along the waterfront and boardwalks to the bridge at A Ramallosa. To take the coastal route, turn left here, even though there are no signs. I met a pilgrim the next day who walked straight here and bitterly regretted taking the official route away from the beaches.
