1. Aiguablava – Begur
Aiguablava beach, next to Begur, is one of the best-known beaches in Costa Brava, and it’s no wonder why. Its name says it all: here the blueness of the sea has a different, charming tone. The starting point of this route is Malaret beach, from where you can reach Racó beach in Pals in an accessible hour-long trek. If you want to walk more and want to do a circular route there is an itinerary that returns to Begur. You can check it out on Wikiloc.
2. Platja d’Aro – Palamós
Don’t miss Cala Rovira, Cala del Pi and the Forn Treumal Tunnel. This circular path is a little longer than the previous one: with approximately 10 and a half kilometres, it will take you to the beautiful village of Palamós. It is highly recommended to get to the end to be able to enjoy the Sa Punta des Molí lighthouse and the route through the old town, where you can breathe the good atmosphere and summer weather!

3. Cadaqués – Cap de Creus
In the middle of the Cap de Creus National Park -as we have already told you before, a must-see on the Costa Brava- there is a beautiful path between Roses and Port de la Selva. Starting from Cala Monjoi, the path is easy until you reach Cadaqués and the famous Cap de Creus. You can also stop in Portlligat to visit Salvador Dalí’s House-Museum. The perfect combination of nature and culture. See route.
4. Tossa de Mar – Cala Pola
We slightly increase the difficulty with this route, but it is well worth it. In the 3 kilometres we will start from Tossa de Mar (whose old town and castle are not to be missed) and the many cliffs will leave us speechless until we reach Cala Bona and Cala Pola. Both beaches are ideal for swimming and cooling off and with caves accessible from the sea. There is also a bar. Tossa de Mar Coastal Footpath.
5. Port de la Selva – Llançà
The total length of this footpath is 9 kilometres forth and then 9 kilometres back, with very notable places such as the lighthouse of s’Arenella and Castellar, a magnificent viewpoint that offers splendid views of both Llançà and Cap de Creus. In Castellar you will still find visible bunkers used during the Second World War. Port de la Selva Coastal Footpath.
