Portuguese Coastal Way: Stage 6
Caminha – Mougás (23,5 km)
We reach Galicia at last, after crossing the river Miño by ferry and leave Caminha and Portugal behind. During this stage we will see the beautiful section of the Galician region, such as Oia monastery or the seafaring village of A Guarda.
We take the ferry to cross the river and enter Galician lands, and once we land, we take the first slope to our left. The arrows will guide us to Camposancos road. Once we have passed Saa’s neighborhood we will reach the PO-355 road towards A Guarda.
We move on through Rua San Bernardo to Rua da Guía and, down Rua Baixada a Praia, we will reach the beach at the end of the village. We will now start a path next to the sea until getting to the slope to the PO-552 road. It will take us to O Rosal village, where we will take to the left towards Portecelo.
We will walk through a cycle path to reach San Sebastián chapel and enter the village of Oia. Here we will walk down the beach to get into a dirt path to our left and next to Punta Orelluda we will return to the cycle path. We will pass by a hotel and a gas station, then we will cross the road and take an ascending street. Following the arrows, we will avoid a paved road section. We return again to the paved road and take a diversion through a dirt path that will lead us to the mouth of river Mougás. We arrive at Porto Mougás, end of this first stage on Galician lands.
