If you fancy a dip in the sea or just a stroll along a beach, Arcade and Pontesampaio (a bridge away) will oblige. Follow the camino to the bridge over the estuary where you will find a strip of sand on both sides.
Stayed at Filla do Mar. Nice cafe attached, and free washer/dryer. Overall clean and modern. I was placed in albuerge next door, which looks like someone’s home but is also clean and not over crowded. The views coming into town are beautiful.
Albergue at the beginning of Arcade. Is open! New building. 15euro incl bedsheets, towel and breakfast.
Excellent three-course home-cooked pilgrim meal at Hotel Isape as well as clean comfortable rooms.
Very modern. Sheets and towel included in 12 euro price. Located on N side of Arcade about 100m after the bridge on the camino. Well signed so easy to find.
