Hello good people. I plan to go Camino Portugues - Coastal Way in May 2020 with my girlfriend. I plan to propose her during the way or maybe at the end. Could you please share some beautiful romantic spots for this occasion?

Excellent advice. You wouldn't be wearing the ring making it very likely it would get lost (as my brother's best man I had the wedding ring jump out of my pocket twice on his wedding day and, when he proposed, the engagement ring got lost in a box of chocolates before his betrothed even got to see it).Just one caution: Don't be carrying a diamond ring on the Camino, unless you can afford to lose it!

Hi @robertgreen, what a lovely thread you've created here!-Islas Cíes (boat from Vigo).
Amen to this! The moment is way more important than the location. A seemingly prosaic setting might present that absolute perfect moment.I'm with @SYates in thinking to do it at the end.
But proposing in front of the Cathedral right when you first arrive might not be the best time. It takes away from what is already an emotionally loaded moment, and something that deserves to be savored on it's own. But why not afterwards, once you're basking in the glow of having finished the camino journey - and looking ahead at the journey of life.
You could go back to to the Plaza do Obradoiro and pop the question there some time later.
And...not to over-think it. A proposal is a very private moment and not theatre. So why not play it by ear? There may be a natural moment that arises which would be far more perfect than something planned ahead.
A beautiful sunset, or even the opposite end of the spectrum - like when things are so awful that it's funny and you loose it in giggles about being wet and muddy and plugging up some horrible hill. In spite of the physical misery, these can actually be very happy times and times when heart bonds are fired in the kiln of struggle together.
Lots of great suggestions so I'll add another to the mix;
There is a limit for number of visitors in a day and an authorization is required especially in summer months.Hi @robertgreen, what a lovely thread you've created here!
I imagine that you'll know when it's the right place and moment, but I LOVE @Pelegrin 's suggestion of the Islas Cíes. A sunset proposal there would be incredibly romantic, uncrowded and memorable. It would take a little bit of organisation, but it's definitely worth considering.
You can do it as a day trip, but an overnight stay would be really special (the campsite has pre-erected tents).
This website might be helpful. Good luck with whatever you decide.
Good for you a wonderful idea you have all my support and wish you well. You can hear a but coming can't you.
Sounds lovely - hope she does not read this forum!!!
Any where in Galicia the red wine is 45% she will say yes but might not remember it it in the morning
Camino de agua y piedras, along the variante espiritual!

In Caldas de Reis you will encounter the lovely O Muiño restaurant. The food will make a pleasant scene-setter then go out onto the river walkway where the question can be popped in an unforgettable place. Good luck.
If bas been mentioned you want a place that you will want to return to I would suggest one of the restaurants along the Douro River in Porto. Lots of hotels, pensions and albergue type places to stay and of course Port wine and chocolate might seal the deal!
It was meant in jest. My apologies if I offended. I have deleted it.I know this was posted as a lighthearted jest.
Unfortunately, the level of violence against women in my society, especially violence by men as a response to rejection, prevents me from receiving it in the lighthearted manner it was intended. I worry that humour like this, although it may very well be harmless among people like us, when seen (or heard) by the types of people that commit these crimes sends the wrong message: that these crimes is understood, or not serious, or heaven forfend, okay. The worry may be needless, but I worry nevertheless.
I apologize because I know this kind of response is uncomfortable and awkward for everyone. But my conscience made me do it
