Perhaps you are wondering where the spectacular pictures of the beach are? Well although this walk is known as the 'Coastal' inevitably it had to turn inland towards Santiago. I suppose I parted company with the ocean somewhere between Baiona and Vigo. It's hard to tell exactly because this part of Spain has huge inlets or Rias which are so wide it still looks like the Atlantic. It did, though, get me thinking about the coastline and its beaches. I absolutely loved the wild, dangerous rocky stretches with huge, crashing waves and no people. The soft sandy beaches in Portugal were lovely especially in the morning before they were covered in reddening, thong - wearing bodies glistening with Ambre Solaire.
