The Costa Brava in Girona, bathed by the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean, offers an infinite number of places of great beauty hidden among the cliffs that separate the villages and urbanisations that are located here. Places that we can visit thanks to the paths that run along the coast and that back in the 19th and 20th centuries were used by the police of the time to make their rounds and control smuggling and black market, hence the name that some of these paths receive today. The Camí of Ronda of S' Agaró is one of these paths that has survived to the present day and has become a beautiful walk that combines spectacular mansions from other periods with the rugged landscapes that characterise the Costa Brava. As you can imagine, there are several Camís of Ronda that we can walk along, most of which coincide with the GR 92 route. In our case, we have chosen the section that links Sant Feliu de Guíxols with S'Agaró, extending it as far as Platja Sa Conca, perhaps one of the most beautiful Camí of Ronda that we can walk along.
The Camí of Ronda that we propose is a linear route that you can start on either of its two slopes. In our case we will start the Camí of Ronda in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, although you can also do it in S'Agaró. To get to Sant Feliu de Guíxols we have to take the C-31 road looking for the exit to Sant Feliu de Guíxols and head towards the yacht club. Both around Platja de Sant Feliu and Platja de Sant Pol, another of the most common starting points, you will find parking areas.
We start our Camí of Ronda in one of the car parks next to the port of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, heading towards the buildings of the yacht club. At the beginning of the parking area before reaching the club, we will see on our left, next to the cliff, the sign indicating the beginning of the Camí of Ronda. We quickly reach the viewpoint over Cala Jonca and, after enjoying the views, continue ascending to skirt the buildings of the urbanisation, wedged between them and the cliff.
This area ahead of us is the most rugged of the entire route. We are crossing a natural spot of great beauty, the Paratge de la Volta de l'Ametller, where we will be accompanied by cliffs and beautiful coves, surrounded by the vegetation that grows in this area. Coves such as Cala des Cranc or Cala dels Mussol until we reach Cala Maset, from here we only have to go down the last flight of stairs of this part of the Camí of Ronda to reach the visited beach of Sant Pol (1h 00min), which we will cross from one end to the other.
At Platja de Sant Pol we begin the Camí of Ronda of S' Agaró to Sa Conca, one of the best known and most popular stretches of the Costa Brava. This part of the route is the most civilised of all the routes, but it still retains its charm. The route is well laid out and suitable for the whole family, combining the scenic interest of the Costa Brava with architectural interest. Here the typical Costa Brava landscape is combined with imposing classical-style mansions, including the La Gavina building, dating from the 1920s and designed by the architect Rafael Masó. This building, or rather the area around the building without actually entering the housing estate through which it is accessed, is where the GR 92 markers await us, indicating the starting point of this section of the Camí of Ronda.
Once again we find ourselves moving from cove to cove, which in most cases can be reached by a staircase. The walk also leads us to discover spots such as the Esculls de la Font viewpoint, a beautiful gazebo with eight columns that offers magnificent views. Almost before you know it, the beach of Sa Conca (1h 30min) appears in front of you, marked by a small islet that separates it from Platja dels Oriços. At the end of this beach we have the possibility of climbing the stairs that will take us to the Punta de Pinell viewpoint, from where we can enjoy beautiful views of Platja d'Aro. From here, all that remains is to return to our starting point, following the steps that brought us to this spot.
