The sea is the star of this route, which could be defined as a very beautiful trip along the coast of Laxe, Soesto and Traba.

We start from the promenade, sharing the first five hundred metres with the PR-G 70 which ends in Punta Insua. After passing the last houses in the village and the Fonte de Arriba, we recommend going up to enjoy the magnificent views from the chapel of Santa Rosa.

From here, we continue along a restored pathway bordered with wood that goes to the Alto de Cal do Castro, from where it is possible to climb the Peñón do Castro to see this stretch of the Costa da Morte (Death Coast).

The next stop is Soesto beach, much frequented by surfers and also by people who come to spend the day there. Our route, after crossing the bridge over the Soesto stream, follows the wood-floored path to Punta Catasol, where you can see, in the granite, the ruts left by carts which formerly collected seaweed to fertilise the fields. When we reach the small beach of Arnado, we come to a wide path coming from Boaño. We take the path in this direction until we come to the recreation area of Campo de Almozarro, which is very close to the first dunes of Traba beach.

The final stretch runs through the beach dunes, between the road and the creek of Rego do Vao, crossing over a stone bridge and finally coming to Traba Lagoon, where the route comes to an end.


Laxe lies in the Corme and Laxe Estuary, on the legendary Costa da Morte (Death Coast).


8 km. (The main route is 7.760 km and the diversion 240 metres).
