I want to take 5 to 6 days relaxing walk to Fiinisterre and Muxia late August.

Couple of questions looking for "stop" recommendations want to average 20-25 kms per day ? , would like Pensions or Casa rural or Albergues with private room ? so any recommendations ?

Also does mono bus still run from Muxia to Santiago at end of August timetable stops in July ?
 
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.
For whatever it is worth, it took me fours days to walk from Santiago de Compostela to Muxia, two days to walk from there south to Finisterre, and another four days to walk from there back to Santiago. My route bifurcation point was at the traffic circle beside the metal smelter on top of the hill (name of locale = Dumbria?) just west of Oliveira.

Beautiful country and great people there.
 
The last time that I walked to the coast I followed the stages suggested by Albergue Monte Aro, which worked well, and it was a great albergue.

Bus lines seem to publish two months of schedules, this month, or what's left of it, and next month. You will need to check after the start of next month for the August schedules. Monbus do provide a service, but there appear to be other companies operating on this route as well. The Xunta website bus.gal can be searched as well as monbus.es for timings and route details.

Looks good thank you.

We 3 ( older pilgrims ) walked 7 days. Santiago to Finistere to Muxia. Recommended distances pretty much according to John Brierley's guide book.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
We are doing it even slower 5 days to Finesterre and 2 days to Muxia, then bus back to Santiago in early October, looks like Monbus is running then. averaging around 20 kms per day. Taking advantage of Casa Jurjo shuttle service.

That's what we did.
 
I don’t know what stages you want to walk, but here are some recommendations:

I would highly recommend the Pensión As Pias in Olveiroa. This is one of the few places in that town that pre-dates the massification of the camino to Finisterre/Muxia and is the most popular place for locals for tapas/bar, etc.

In Moraime, if you take the route to Muxia first, the monastery in Moraime now has an albergue/pensión. I would love to stay there.

The albergue in Dumbria, if you go first to Muxia, is a pretty amazing albergue, funded by the Gallego who owns Zara and many other clothing operations.

Are you planning to go first to Finisterre or Muxia?

I walk slow / short days.

I did it in 6 days last month.

Negreira 20.6 kms
Santa Marina 20.7 kms
O Logoso 16.5 kms
Corcubion 17.8 kms
Fisterra 10.8 kms (plus extra 6 km round trip to lighthouse)
Muxia 27.8 kms

Private accommodation all the way as I wanted to leave some gear in Santiago and travel 'lighter' than I had been up to that point.

There are lots of accommodation options.
I added in a couple of extra nice ones....... as I had been on the road a long time and was winding down.
All private rooms with own bathroom.

Negreira (Hostal San Jose - turned out to be a whole apartment - washing machine in Albergue part)
Santa Marina (Casa Pepa - flies, but it's a working farm - nice people and bar)
O Logoso (Hostal / Pension O Logoso - really nice place, bar, food)
Corcubion (Pension Mar Viva - great location 2 min walk from the Harbour)
Fisterra (Hospedium H Cabo Sport - great location 2 min walk from the Harbour - washing machine ground floor)
Muxia (Apartamentos Costa da Morte Muxia - studio apartment with view over the Harbour and washing machine)

Accommodation reccomendations are always risky! We all have different expectations, budgets and quirks. And a lot can depend on who else is staying there, staffing etc etc.

So with those caveats, I enjoyed staying in all of these.


The final day was a bit longer than I prefer.
But with a pre dawn start, second breakfast at Lires, and plenty of water, it wasn't hard.
Took me 8.5 hours including breaks.

Re the distances, those are from Gronze.
My actual distances from GPS were usually a km or so shorter.
Nice surprise at the end of the day......

I have a daily blog of that section, SDC to Muxia here.

Brilliant many thanks Robo
 
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.
