We leave the beautiful beach of Niñóns through a forest that takes us to the small beach of O Morro, which leads us to Ponteceso. Small coves and beaches such as Niño do Corvo and Santamariña make us advance to a point where we will momentarily leave the coast, as it is a dangerous area of cliffs. We quickly return to the coast and we find the beach of A Barda.
Now comes the complicated part of the stage. The Costa Tremosa offers us a demanding path that will take us to the rustic and picturesque village of Roncudo, with its traditional popular architecture perfectly adapted to the difficult climate of the area. Dotted with wind energy blades, this high area will suddenly offer us a steep downhill slope towards cliffs rich in barnacles, where brave and brave “percebeiros” risk their lives to put these rich marine jewelson our tablecloth.
We have arrived at the Roncudo lighthouse.
From there an asphalted road joins the lighthouse with the village of Corme, where we can find several services. After the beaches of Arnela, Osmo and Ermida, we will arrive at Balarés Beach, at the foot of Monte Branco (don’t worry, we won’t climb this one), which, after surrounding it, offers us the marvellous beach of Barra Beach. A path and then the Paseo del Malecón will take us to Ponteceso, a small village with services and the end of our stage.
This is one of the longest and most complicated stages, so have a good breakfast before leaving Playa de Niñóns and take it easy, and we will start to find steep downhill slopes, so we recommend knee pads and walking sticks, to reach Ponteceso without incident. Fortunately, we will pass through the town centre of Corme shortly after the halfway point of the stage, so we will have access to several services.
