cami de ronda costa brava

Spectacular hiking along Costa Brava’s coastal path

If you want to do something a bit more active during your holiday than spending every day on the beach, try a walk along the Camí de Ronda, Costa Brava’s hiking gem, unknown to most tourists.
This 200km long hiking trail covers the whole coast from Blanes to Collioure in France right next to the water. It was originally built by fishermen and the police who used it to look out for smugglers.

In many places the path goes right along the water and you’ll pass hidden beaches, secluded coves, small fishing villages, pines trees,… the views of the landscape are amazing! Plus you can cool off any time in the crystal clear turquoise water!

You can choose between leisurely strolls, hour-long walks or week-long hikes if you want to walk the whole path.

We recommend the following parts of the trail that you can easily walk in a and combine with lunch/dinner or a stroll in any of the Costa Brava’s little fisherman villages that you will pass on your way.

Tamariu – Llafranc
Platja d’Aro – Sant Antoni de Calonge
Cadaqués – Port Lligat
Calella de Palafugell – Llafranc

This 1,5h hike will blow you away as you pass diferent sceneries. You can combine it with lunch or dinner at Restaurant Tragamar, on Calella’s beach.
If you walk the other way around (from Llafranc to Calella and back), drive up to the San Sebastia light house and reserve a table at hotspot Nomo, a japonese restaurant inside the lighthouse.
