1.50km → Pontesampaio → 2.00km → Cacheiro
To end of camino: 

The hotels here are located along the main road, which is both noisy and a bit dangerous. Suitable as a last resort but otherwise best avoided.

The Road: 

After crossing the bridge, take a left turn on the first street. This turn is followed by a series of zigs and zags that take you up and through town at the highest point.

The camino takes a welcome break from the road traffic between here and O Pobo.

Can also really recommend to stay in Pontesampaio and at albergue O Meson. Cute little relaxed village. The albergue is super fresh, clean, nice beds, friendly host!

The mussels at the bar just as you cross the bridge are great!

O Meson is a really new, clean place. We actually took the bus here from Pontevedra because everything was full! Highly recommend! As of August 2019, it is 12 Euros

For those of you,who are planning to stay in beautiful Arcade few km before Pontevedra,I would like to recommend newly opened albergue. Located few meters(I think 200m) from camino. Very friendly staff,great equipped,with everything we needed. Price was very good for what we get - we did not book in advance. There is a restaurant nearby,where you get breakfast,lunch or dinner with discount. Good food for good price and amazing wine. We were only 2 there as it is opened first few days. I wish them luck and I can trully recommend,we were very satisfied.

Contrary to the comments that this is noisy, we found Las Islas charming and since our room was on the water - very quiet. Being right on the water it reminded us of our home State of Queensland. This is bit off the track, but I would recommend it for it’s clean room, water view and helpful staff.
