We leave the Beach of Nemiña with the view on the village of Lires, on the other side of its estuary, the smallest of the Galician estuaries, on the way to Cape Finisterre. To access this population we must enter through forests and link the
Way of St. James of Muxía and Finisterre
It is only possible to cross the estuary in some hours of the summer months, which would save some kilometres.
We arrive at Lires, where we will have the last services before reaching our goal.
We continue and pass by Lires Beach, which gives us access to the open sea again. We pass by Area Grande beach, continue along the cliffs and arrive at the majestic Playa del Rostro beach, whose sand we will walk on. At the end of this beach, between Punta do Rostro and Punta do Castelo, the Casón cargo ship ran aground on 5 December 1987, and 23 of the 31 crew members died.
Passing by the remains of Castro de Castromiñán, more cliffs lead us to the small beach of Arnela, and from there to Cabo de la Nave, with the viewpoint of Veladoiro, followed by the viewpoint of Mar de Fóra and its beach, dangerous because of its tides.
We follow strong ascents and descents and we face the final stretch, passing close to the Piedras Santas de Finisterre in its Monte Facho, whose panoramic view of the Lighthouse, our goal, is spectacular and exciting, because it turns us into real trasnos after having travelled and enjoyed this unique and singular Way of the Lighthouses.
To be taken into account.
This stage is very exciting, because it is the last one and its goal is a magical place, the Cabo Finisterre, and on arrival we will be able to enjoy its famous sunset, so you have to take calmly the route from Playa de Nemiña, especially in the ups and downs of the final stretch, with the certainty that the reward for our effort will be very rewarding.
