My wife and I are planning to walk the Camino Portugues, starting in Porto, in May, and we're trying to decide between the coastal route from Porto to Redondela (not along the senda, but the route slightly inland) and the central route. I can't really find any good comparisons between the two routes in the Camino Portugues threads I've read on the forum. From reading Brierley's guide, it seems the coastal route has less walking on busy roads, and also offers stopovers that are 20 - 25k apart rather than stages of more than 30k. But we can't get any kind of fix on differences in scenery or any other relative merits. If anyone has walked them both, we'd appreciate your feedback.
