DATE: May 6 at 8:30 a.m.
Enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches and coves on the Costa Brava with a spectacular walk along the coast from Palamós to Calella de Palafrugell. A nature and beach hiking route through one of the most beautiful spots on the Costa Brava, the one that connects Palamós with Calella de Palafrugell.
We start the route in Palamós and walk to La Fosca. From there, we will take a very easy coastal path to the beautiful and picturesque Cala S’Alguer, where we will take a short break before resuming our march towards Platja del Castell, one of the few almost virgin beaches on the peninsula, with important remains of an ancient Iberian settlement.
On the Castell beach we will have free time to have a drink at the beach bar and enjoy the calm that this beautiful beach offers us (if someone wants to bathe, here they will have the first opportunity to do so).
On the Castell beach, we will visit the remains of an Iberian settlement and we will resume our march to the beautiful and virgin Cala Estreta, where we will stop for a while to eat a picnic (you have to bring a sandwich from home or buy it in Palamós).
After eating and resting, we will walk to Cap Roig, where we will take the beautiful coastal path to Calella de Palafrugell. Finally, we will have some free time to have a well-deserved beer.
