Santiago to Finisterra and back


Past OR future Camino
Hi fellow pirigrinos!
How are you all doing?
I’m on my Camino right now, and have basically decided to walk to Finisterra.
I have several questions!
1. How long it takes? I hear it takes three days. Is that right?
2. How many km is it?
3. Once I arrive in Finisterre, how long do I need (for a lack of better word) to stay there? How long would be enough time for me to see what’s worth seeing. Is one night enough? I.e. I arrive at - I guess 2pm or 3pm after having walked in the morning; and then - would that afternoon be enough? And then maybe I book my coach back to Santiago for the following day?
4. Do I need to book the coach in advance?
5. How long it takes by coach?
6. How much is it?
7. Can the coach take you right to the airport?
ANY thoughts on any of the questions would be of great help. Don’t mean to be sounding like a crazy person lol just want to have an idea, and hopefully start booking flights etc!
Thanks in advance, peregrinos!
Buen Camino to all of you!!!

How long you need is a bit tricky, we stayed two days and still felt as though another day or two would have been great. We swam, walked around the village, up to the lighthouse, and all around the beaches, took the boat cruise, and generally relaxed with the beautiful view. I loved Finisterre. Other people stayed one night and left.

How long is a piece of string?
Some of us like to spend serious time at the end-of-the-world, some are happy with a selfie at the 0km mojone and a bottle of cava on the rocks. Sunset at the light-house is a memorable event (so long as it isn't raining or foggy): so maybe give yourself 24 hours and allow for a three hour bus-ride to reverse that three day walk.
