No services, but there is an access road here that leads to a beach.

The Road

The camino passes through the miniscule hamlets of Padrís and A Canosa before descending to Lires.

TO MUXÍA NOTE: After Castrexe, but before Padrís, there are arrows painted in RED which indicated a ‘coastal’ option to Muxía which turns left and follows the coast to Lires. This option adds 1.1km to the route but offers much better views and the possibility to take a pause at the beach.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

I walked the coastal route from the beach adjacent to Padrís. I saw 0 red arrows until I hooked back up to a dirt road approaching Lires. For the record, this is not a beach route, it’s along a cliff side. Gorgeous, some of the most incredible views I’ve seen on the Camino (starting in Porto and through Fisterra). But this is not an easy route. There is steep incline and sections of scrambling. The trail is also not intuitive, as it goes through a nature preserve with multiple trails. If you want an easy-to-follow route, this isn’t it. But if you are looking for something stunning, and you’re willing to loosely head north without trail markings, consider it. I saw some green paint markings indicating the trail when it was unclear, and two signs that said “Camino Faro.” This route added about 3 miles/6 km, but again, I don’t think all of it was the Camino.

Just before entering Castrexe turn left to the marvellous beach. A idyllic spot for picnic. The sea/ocean/looks dangerous: no swim
