Time of past OR future Camino
Plan to go in late Sept/early Oct
I will be walking the Portuguese Coastal Camino in May from Porto. Will I need short gaiters for walking in the sand? From what I have read, it looks like I will be mostly on boardwalks and trails away from the beach.Thank you for any suggestions.
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

I always wear sock liners to prevent blisters from sand in my socks. Just a little sand can cause blisters, especially "sugar sand" like we have in Florida. I also find sock liners wick off moisture on wet hikes. I swear by them! (I also use gaiters, just to keep my socks clean.)
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.

I brought gaiters last year when I did that route, never had to use them. The sand is now covered with very nice boardwalks but they get slippery when wet so be careful.
 
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
Love Dirty Girl Gaiters. Light as a fluffy cloud. And the tag says made by Goddesses.!
