CAMINO DE RONDA – LA FOSCA
Route especially designed for amateur users who are not much used to hiking or for those hikers that wish to spend a different weekend; straying, without any hurries, enjoying the landscape and an impressive natural setting. If the journey is completed with a premium accommodation, it will be a difficult weekend to forget. Along the track, we will find a number of cristal-clear sandy beaches lines, charming stone coves where you can take a bath and sunbathe in some of the most privileged spots of the Costa Brava, such as Castell beach, cala Canyers, cala Estreta, cap de Planes, cala dels Corbs, el Crit and Golfet among others.
We reach la Fosca beach, with the ruins of Sant Esteve castle. From this point on, the wildest stretch of Camí de Ronda® starts. We reach s’Alguer, small fishermen place of traditional Mediterranean architecture; the Castell beach, one of the only virgin beaches of Costa Brava, cala Canyers, cala dels Corbs, cala Estreta, cap de Planes and el Crit. Then, we climb cap Roig, to reach Golfet beach and we barely notice we enter Calella de Palafrugell.
