I have walked spring and summer and it is lovely anytime, if you plan to walk along the beaches be remined that the resort areas are booked heavily during the summer so vacant rooms are hard to find.

I really have no idea but it was the time of year my brother and I originally selected. In fact Monday would have been our departure day.Now we do not know when/if we will get to see the Nth Atlantic coast.

Portuguese coastal route May 2020 (not to be)
Portuguese coastal route TBD post COVID-19
We were scheduled to begin walking on May 24 this year.. but alas not to be. We are hoping to reschedule for early May next year, 2021. Hopefully getting in after Corona virus vaccines are available and before the holy year stampede. P.S. Nobody else plan for his time period ;)

The weather was great for our walk on the Central route of CP between May 11 and 30. There was light rain in one morning.

I am hoping the CF route would have been open in May next year.

I walked it in May last year. It wasn't too hot and even when it rained, it wasn't cold. I am so glad that I reserved a bed at Casa Fernanda's on the Central Route . I met so many wonderful people there!

we walked in June, 2018, ending on the 29th along the Coastal route from Porto. The weather was magnificent, fewer pilgrims and wonderful scenery.

I'm planning on walking Porto-Santiago-Fisterre-Muxia in May 2021. Looking at the last few years of weather in Portugal/Spain for May - mid 70s as a high and low of mid 55s - great for walking. I plan on doing the Coastal Route from Porto - Pontevedra, then the Espiritual Route around to Padron. Hope to see you on the trail!
