Autumn is the ideal time to embark on a circular walking route from our campsite. Make the most of the sunshine and the mild temperature and enjoy a leisurely stroll from Cala Llevadó to Tossa de Mar and back again via some of the primary natural attractions of this stretch of the Costa Brava. During this 8 km-route, which includes its fair share of ups and downs (including a 300-metre slope), you’ll have the opportunity to explore a number of unspoiled areas of the Macizo de Cadiretes, while taking in spectacular views of some of the most charming coves in the area.
Now, put on your sensible shoes, pack drinking water and a camera with plenty of memory and… we’re off! First, we take the coastal path to Tossa, along the cliffs with their gorgeous sea views. Listen to the waves breaking below and admire the myriad shades of the Mediterranean. This walk is suitable for all ages, but if you’re walking with kids, keep an eye on them along some of the steeper slopes.
You might be taken aback by the fact that some of the places names here begin with the article ‘Es’. This comes from the Catalan salat dialect that was traditionally spoken in this part of the Costa Brava. Highlights of this first part of the circular route include the Freu de sa Boquera, sa Muladera Island, Cala Moltó, Cala d’en Jeroni and la Punta des Cards. Next, the path leads you into Tossa, with incredible views of Codolar Beach. If it’s a sunny day, treat yourself to a swim or a paddle. You deserve it!
The great thing about this circular route is that the way back takes you along a different, shorter path. Make the most of this opportunity to visit some of Tossa’s most fascinating corners. Leave the Torre de los Moros (Moors Tower) until the end, as this will be your starting point for your trip back to the campsite. From the top of Can Magí hill, say your goodbyes to this 16th century tower (built to defend Tossa from pirates) and take the GR-92, which leads back to the campsite.
