Discover the most authentic and wild Costa Brava hiking along the Camino de Ronda.
This historic path was born more than a thousand years ago to communicate the different towns of the coast, its beaches and its coves. It began to be known by the name of Camino de Ronda during the 19th and 20th centuries, because it was the path used by the police and the Civil Guard to carry out their surveillance rounds and control the smuggling and black market activities that took place on the coast.
There are several routes in both Costa Brava and Costa Dorada that start right next to our hotels (Cap Salou and Tossa de Mar).
The beautiful Costa Brava
Currently, this GR is a beautiful path that combines charming paths, spectacular views and dips in idyllic coves. These are very simple routes, although there are some sections that require a minimum of preparation, since they include numerous ups and downs. Although it is not a highly difficult route, we recommend that you wear technical footwear for hiking.
Although one of the most spectacular parts of the entire coastal path is the one that runs between Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Begur.
Camino de Ronda - Tossa de Mar
Discover the most authentic and unspoilt Costa Brava hiking along the Camino de Ronda: a beautiful route between the towns of Blanes and Portbou.
Two main routes depart from Tossa de Mar. The one to the north leads to Cala Giverola and passes through three wonderful coves: Bona, Pola and Giverola. From the latter you can return by boat.
The southern route takes us to Cala Llevadó, on a tour whose prize is enjoying splendid views from the Mirador des Cars and a swim in the Moltó cove.
The surprising coves of the Costa Dorada
One of the most beautiful and affordable routes in this area is the one that runs along the route between the castle of Tamarit and the city of Tarragona. It is a fragment of the coastal path, one of those historical routes that were opened over the centuries to communicate the coastal towns and help in common defense.
The Costa Dorada also has numerous coves, just as charming as those of the Costa Brava. The difference is that here the blue of the sea has those golden tones that give this piece of coast its name, instead of the dark blue, almost black, of the sea on the Costa Brava.
Camino de Ronda in Salou
Going through the Camino de Ronda is one of the most interesting activities that you can do if you visit Salou. The 6.5km path runs along beaches and coves, and is an original and different way of discovering the Cap Salou area.
From Pilones, the path heads south and passes Capellans beach, where you can see the remains of the old lazareto, built in 1829. The route continues along Llenguadets cove, from where you can see the bunkers built during the Civil War Civil. The last section corresponds to the Larga beach, a natural environment and far from the tourist area.
The route consists of 2 sections: from Pilones to Replanells (2 km) the path is fully enabled; from Replanells to El Faro (4.5 kms) on a natural path, it is not fully conditioned.
TIPS before starting any route:
Be honest with yourself and assess whether you have the necessary physical preparation to do the chosen route.
Wear appropriate walking shoes.
Check the weather forecast before starting.
Wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions at the time.
Bring water, especially in summer.
Use sun protection.
Take extra care on the stretches of the coastal path exposed to the cliffs and do not leave the path.
Be aware of your own limitations and act with common sense.
Respect and enjoy the environment.
