S’Agaró coastal path

Along the Costa Brava, from Blanes to Portbou, we find the so-called seaside walk paths, walking trails next to the rocky coast providing a beautiful view of the coastline.

Initially these trails had a double function: to provide a rapid transit route for fishermen who had to move from one beach to another and, moreover, create a night security roads that would allow authorities to control the maritime smuggling. To the extent that both activities have been disappearing from our way of life, coastal trails have lost their original usefulness. However, local authorities have given a great importance to this ancient elements of our coast and now many of them are conditioned and protected from private property, so that visitors can walk and meet our coast in a simple manner.

Probably S’Agaró coastal trail is the smartest of the Costa Brava. It goes next to one of the most luxurious urbanisation in the whole area (designed by Josep Ensesa i Gubert, a disciple of Gaudí, in the years 20 of XXth century).

We start our trip from the beach of Sant Pol in Sant Feliu de Guixols. From there, facing the sea, to the left, we take the marked walkway GR 92. This is a large and excellently paved path that allows us to follow without any problem.

During the tour we will discover the luxurious Gavina Hotel, magnificent facades of s’Agaro urbanisation, facing directly to the sea, the wonderful viewpoint of Punta de Pau … during the tour you will find many trees and plants… they are really well maintained by the village authorities of Sant Feliu de Guíxols and the inhabitants of the  urbanisation, who wish to display all this environment proudly for the enjoyment of visitors.

We continue to Cala Pedrosa, after which there is another temple veranda facing the bay. The path continues then through the steps of Sa Conca, until Cala de los Oriços, where we end our tour having enjoyed one of the most extraordinary places on the Costa Brava, declared Heritage of Cultural Interest.
