With the Atlantic Ocean as your constant companion, just take the time to enjoy the tranquillity of walking along the coast on this stage with wide open views of the sea. Arrive at the fishing village of Oia with its historic Monastery of Santa Marta de Oia. Enjoy an evening meal of grilled fish and sip on a glass of Vinho Verde as you take in the sea views.

This is a fantastic walk along the spectacular coastline. Rough rocky shore so no swimming but the views are wonderful. Enjoy this coastal flat walk as after Baiano the remainder of the Camino Portugues heads off into the towns and hills of Galicia.
