Discovering the Camí de Ronda in Tossa de Mar

One of the great attractions of Tossa de Mar is undoubtedly its geographical location; the privileged natural environment that surrounds it makes Tossa de Mar one of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Brava. Emerald green coves and routes where nature is the main protagonist. So if you are visiting or on holiday in Tossa, we encourage you to discover the Camí de Ronda.


The Camí de Ronda in Tossa de Mar is a coastal path that runs along the entire coast of the municipality. It stretches for about 10 kilometres and connects several beaches and coves in the area, offering breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the Costa Brava landscape.


It can be covered on foot, and is an excellent option if you want to go hiking and enjoy nature and the sea. The variety of beaches, coves, cliffs and rocky landscapes make it a perfect plan to visit Tossa.


The Ronda path is accessible all year round, although in summer it tends to be busier due to the influx of tourists. It is advisable to bring comfortable footwear and sun protection, as well as water and food, since Cala Bona is the only cove that offers a beach bar to eat or drink something.



Where does the coastal path start in Tossa de Mar?

The cami de ronda in Tossa de Mar starts at the town's main beach, "Platja Gran" (Big beach), if you want to walk along the northern part. From there, the path follows the coastline and passes numerous beaches and coves, such as es Codolar beach, Reig beach, Llorell beach, Cala Morisca, among others.


A very nice route from this point is the one that takes us on the Camí de Ronda from Cala Codolar to Cala Llevadó. This is a walk of approximately 4 kilometres (1.5-2 hours, depending on the pace) along the Costa Brava, where you can enjoy breathtaking rocky views until you reach Cala Llevadó, a wide and quiet beach surrounded by pine trees and rocks.


Start from Cala Codolar and follow the coastal path through Punta de ses Donzellas, a rocky peninsula with stunning views of the sea.


It is also possible to start the coastal path at other beaches near Tossa de Mar, such as Mar Menuda beach. This would be the southern route that will take you to discover the impressive Cala Bona, Cala Pola or Cala Giverola.


Cami de ronda Cala Bona and Cala Pola

The coastal path to Cala Bona is a short and easy walk from the centre of Tossa de Mar that offers stunning views of the sea and the coast. One of the aspects to bear in mind is that getting there by car is almost impossible, as there is no parking and the cove is located under a cliff, so the route on foot is the only option to discover this marvelous place.


The route starts at La Mar Menuda beach in Tossa de Mar, following the coastline in a southerly direction. The route has no difficulty whatsoever, making it a perfect plan for all kinds of people, including children. In Cala Bona, you can enjoy the beach and its crystal-clear waters, as well as its rocky landscape and the cliffs that surround it. In the summer months they open a small beach bar where you can have lunch and enjoy the incredible views.


The total distance of the walk is around 1.5 kilometres and takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on your pace. However, bear in mind that this is a very small cove full of rocks, so if your plan is to sunbathe or go with children, fifteen minutes away you have Cala Pola, with much more space, sand and a restaurant that is part of the campsite.


Coastal path from Tossa de Mar to Giverola cove

Following the Camí de Ronda route you will reach the largest of the coves in the southern area. Of those mentioned, Cala Giverola is also the furthest away. The total walking distance is about 7 kilometres and it takes approximately 2-3 hours.


Cala Giverola, unlike the others, is located close to a residential area with the Club Hotel Giverola on the beach itself, so it has a wide range of services such as showers, toilets, bar and restaurant. Note that several cruise ships dock in this cove, so if you wish, it is possible to return by boat.




Camí de ronda Tossa de Mar with children

Visiting Tossa de Mar is an excellent option for exploring the area's coastline with the whole family. Many of the routes can be done with children, although it is important to note that the path runs through natural landscapes, sometimes steep, which lack safety measures.


If you are travelling with children under 3 years of age, it is advisable to bring a backpack so that you can carry them in the more difficult areas. It is also important to bring water and sun protection, as well as suitable walking shoes, as the hike can be demanding in some sections.


We suggest three easy routes along the camí de ronda for children:


From Playa de la Mar Menuda to Cala Bona.

As we have already explained, this route is approximately 1.5 km long and is one of the most popular to do with children. It starts at Mar Menuda beach and ends at Cala Bona. The path is relatively easy and offers breathtaking views of the coast.


From Platja d'es Codolar, to the Mirador dels Cards.

Choosing the northern route of the path, it is possible to reach this viewpoint, from where we can contemplate Punta dels Cards, Cape Pelai, or Punta d'en Querus, among others. A visual fantasy from where you can take good family photos.


From Playa de la Mar Menuda to Platja Gran.

This route is approximately 3.5 km long and is done along the "paseo" (promenade), making it suitable for children of all ages. It offers stunning views of the sea and coastline. Don't forget to stop for a photo next to the sculpture of Minerva or at the forged window next to the promenade in front of the Reymar hotel.


In addition to the proposals, there are several hiking routes that connect Tossa de Mar with other beautiful towns on the Costa Brava, such as Lloret de Mar, Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Platja d'Aro. Visit the Tossa de Mar tourist office for more detailed information on the coastal path.
