Hi all. What in your opinions is/are the best guidebook(s) for the Portugues COASTAL - possibly including the Senda Litoral. I used Brierly when I did the start of the coastal from Porto then moved inland to the central, and as I recall info on the coastal was limited in Brierley. Is there a better, more detailed coastal guide ?

I quite like Wise Pilgrim but it wasn’t too helpful when swopping routes whereas the Brierley maps were.

Brierley’s latest edition (2018) is more complete on the coastal options, with route descriptions, etc. Earlier editions had only maps.

I am in the process of planning our coastal route starting in Porto and I have bought several books including the 2018 Brierley. The book that I have found most helpful in the way it is formatted and the information it provides is the Village to Village map guide: Camino Portugues: Lisbon-Porto-Santiago, Central and Coastal Routes by Matthew Harms. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1947474022/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

One advantage for me of the Village to Village guides over the Brierley is that they are also available in Kindle version so I can take them on my phone with no additional weight. You can do that with the Brierley maps, too, but I like having the full guidebook.
