N3-Description

Bike route description

This route starts in Sant Feliu de Guíxols and ends in l’Estartit. It follows the “camí de ronda”, a coastal path, which allows you to enjoy the incredible coastal landscapes of the Costa Brava region.

A coast that will surprise most of the visitors, as we pass through old fishing towns as Calella de Palafrugell or Llafranc, or charming medieval villages as Pals, more inland.

Far away from the crowded places related to this area, the region  that you’ll be walking has plenty of unknown places as well as absolutely beautiful unspoilt coves such as Cala Castell, near Palafrugell. 

This tour will sure provide little but precious happy moments such as  drinking coffee just in front of the Sea, or having dinner in some of the best restaurants of the region.

N3-Must-do

Must do & must sees

Relax and swim in one of the outstanding little coves that you’ll find on your way.

Have dinner in one of the restaurants in front of the seaside with fresh seafood.
