Âncora is a medium sized with all services, apart from an albergue de peregrinos. 

The Road

To find your way from Âncora, make your way to the waterfront. The camino follows the road adjacent to it, and where the yellow bike lanes begin you have the option of crossing to the right-hand side of the road, but keep an eye open for where the bike path turns left as you want to follow it to where it ends. From there continue along the dirt track, with the railway to your right for a short distance. 

You will pass the Capela de Santa Isodoro on your left. The path will turn to a road as it enters the first suburbs of Caminha, and where the road ends at another turn right. You are at the beach now and a short distance later turn right and pass under the railway. Once back to the main road turn left and continue towards Caminha.

Where the camino arrives at a large roundabout with the N13, take the third exit along the Rua de Pombal (NOT over the railway). The road will eventually twist to pass over the tracks and from there it proceeds directly to Caminha, arriving at the main square, the Praça Conselheiro Silva Torres.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

I'm not sure why it's not listed but it's a fantastic albergue with a great host and community feel. Clean and new.

Slept in dormitory of 6 for 16€. Hospitalera Maria Magdalena is Wonder Woman. The bar next door belongs to the hostel. Coffee and croissant for 2€. Nice place to stay in front of a beautiful beach.

New Albergue is Casa Quinta da Quinhas- title didn’t show up when posted! A bit off the Camino but worth it

Highly recommend the Vivenda Atlántica guest house in Áncara, a few kilometres before the larger town of Vila Praia de Ancora. Very clean with kitchen, beautiful and comfortable. Phone 964-267-977. €15.
