COSTA BRAVA: CAMI DE RONDA IN CALELLA DE PALAFRUGELL

The footpaths called Camins de Ronda (Ronda Way) will allow you to discover in detail the most lovely corners of the Costa Brava in Catalonia.

Historically-speaking, they are old paths criss-crossing the coast, used mainly by customs officers to keep an eye on tobacco smugglers, and by fishermen and sailors to go fishing or in cases of shipwreck.

Nowadays Camins de Ronda are a set of public seaside footpaths (belonging to the GR-92) often connecting beautiful beaches and villages of Costa Brava and offering beautiful views of its beaches and coves.

There are several sections of Camí de Ronda near Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell:

  • From Garbí stairs in Llafranc to Golfet beach in Calella de Palafrugell (about 1h 30min.)
  • From Pedrosa cove in Tamariu along the coast (1 hour approx.), continue inland to Saint Sebastian (45 min. more approx.) and, finally, you can keep walking to Llafranc (20 min. approx.)

Next I would like to show you some pictures of the first section, the one I enjoyed.
