Hi,
Portomarin for sure and there are lots of little streams and rivers that you walk along/across that could be tempting in warm weather-if the water level keeps high enough. It depends on how much depth you require but wallowing can be very refreshing!
If you decide to go on to Fisterra then the little river you cross between Olviroa and Hospital has some nice deep pools and once on the coast beaches are lovely between Cee and Fisterra.
Bonne route

I have just finished walking from Astorga to Santiago.
I saw people swimming in Molinaseca (young people diving from the road bridge above the river), Vega de Valcarce and Cacabelos. Beautiful weather.

And the albergue at Boadilla del Camino has a swimmingpool.
Can't tell how deep, I walked in october / november; the pool is outside without heating, so the whole thing was covered.

The very small pool at Boadilla del Camino was closed in very hot weather when I stayed there in mid May 2008. Is it ever open?

In Molinaseca, even in summer, water is absolutely cold!!

And, don't forget Ribadiso.

Buen Camino,

Many, various, and continuing.
In Puente de Villarente, (going into Leon) that notoriously dangerous bridge for pedestrians crosses over a lovely swimming hole on the River Porma!

Does anybody know the phone number for the Pilgrim shop in Tricastella in Spain? I was charged twice for the same item. I bought a pair of shoes which cost 29.99. I was asked to tap my card twice...

At the entrance to El Burgo Ranero there is a lovely monumental cross, It bears this inscription: "A la memoria de los ninos." Anybody know the story behind that inscription?
