Camino Portugal Coastal (2018)
I am planning to cycle from Porto to Santiago in May 2022 on the coastal route. I am interested in hearing other peoples experience of campsites along the route. I would like to choose this camping option instead of staying in hotels if at all possible. My camping equipment would be limited to a small tent and a light sleeping bag, so there isn't much concern on my part about weight.

How many nights were you thinking of camping?

Porto to the ferry at Caminha is just over 100km. You'll either be going slow, or you won't be doing much camping.

Going to limit my cycling to approx 50km per day
I did the reverse of this trip in 2019. By bike but didnt camp and at 50klms per day approx took 5 days i think from santiago to porto. Slept in Albergues. Last 20 klms got metro back into Porto as traffic bad and was going down with a flu. From Tui the coastal road was beautiful. Bon camino.
