A short itinerary that starts at Cavall Bernat, at the end of Platja d’Aro’s Platja Gran, which runs along the way to the north, walking along coves of exceptional landscape beauty.
The northern Cami de Ronda’s trail along Tramuntana’s coves follows the GR-92, a track which was formerly used to control coastal populations and maritime borders to avoid smuggling. Nowadays it is a path that gives access to the coves and small tunnels that increase the trail’s interest. On the way back, we will go through the remains of the Roman town of Pla de Palol, an ancient and rich farm that shows us that, for centuries, humans have chosen these areas to live thanks to their exceptional conditions.
The first part of the trail runs at sea level as far as Cala del Pi and the second part returns along the road of the urbanized area.
-You can park your car next to Sardana Square. In the summer season, you can leave it at the two car parks in the center of Platja d'Aro: Europa Square (paying) and market place (free).
-Cala Rovira must be crossed walking on sand.
-If you decide to walk along the rocks away from the “Camí de Ronda” (by the sea) you have to pay attention to the waves.
-The whole year
-Sun protection during hot days. Cap, cream and sunglasses.
-It is recommended to wear rubber shoes. Rocky coves are usually covered with algae that, when entering the water, can make you slip.
-At Platja Gran and Cala Rovira, there is a beach bar during the summer.
-In the parking lot of Plaça Europa and the market square there are public toilets. During summer, there are also at the seafront promenade. And the public toilets of Cala Rovira are open from Easter until September 30.
