route of the coastal path

Located on the beach of Sant Pol, a vertical sign indicates the way to follow to reach the Platja d’Aro by the GR 92 path. From here we follow the path that crosses a path of transverse woods, leaving on the left the buildings of the Nautical Base, and on the right an area of recovered dunes.

We are surprised to see how these houses seem to have had access to the beach by boat. If we look, under the promenade there are a number of old jetties, which seem to connect with the stairs and doors, also old access to the houses.

These are historic paths that run along the coast, which centuries ago were used to reach the coves, and that after the Civil War were used by the Civil Guard to monitor and combat smuggling.

Specifically, in Baix Empordà there are up to 11 coastal paths, from the one located further north, which goes from Cala Montg贸 to Punta Mil谩, south of L麓Escala, to the one you find further south, in Sant Feliu de Guixols, from Cala Jonca to San Pol beach.

From south to north, starting from the Rac de S麓Agar贸 beach, it runs along the cliffs and coves of the historic and sumptuous residential area of S麓Agar贸, to reach the beach of Sa Conca, south of Playa de Aro.

As well, in the historic Hotel la Gavina, built in 1932, and which you can see next to the aforementioned beach of the Rac贸 de S麓Agar贸, have stayed numerous artists, who after the Civil War came to make films.

In this beautiful place of the Costa Brava has been filmed, for example, Pandora and the wandering Dutchman, played by Ava Gardner, and more recently, the film Mar Adentro by Alejandro Amen谩bar, winner of an Oscar.

The route now runs along the walls of the Hostal La Gavina, a 5-star hotel built in 1932 by which many personalities of art, literature, politics and cinema have passed. We will arrive at Punta d’ En Pau, where is located the Caleta del Racó de Llevant, a small concrete solarium and much sought after by those who flee from large crowds.

The path is surrounded by a well-kept vegetation, with flowers and gardens, which bring more beauty to our route that, in this stretch, passes in front of luxurious and beautiful classic style mansions. Great stars such as Ava Gardner, Orson Wells or Elisabeth Taylor have walked here, and even today a large part of the Catalan aristocracy enjoy their vacations.

On our way we will pass by the Loggia de Senya Blanca, also known as the villa of Josep Ensesa i Gubert, the first villa that was built in the urbanization of S’Agaró in 1924 by the Girona architect Rafael Masó i Valentí.

costa brava coastal path

After visiting the coastal path from Platja d’Aro to Sant Antoni de Calonge and enjoying the route through different coves, I decided to return to the tourist town of Castell-Platja D’Aro, a popular tourist enclave surrounded by apartments and campsites, to walk the coastal path from Platja d’Aro to S’Agaró, one of the most popular of the Costa Brava thanks to its easy accessibility.

It crosses several seafront developments (and not so many coves) and it is rather a short walk to reach the spectacular beach of Sant Pol in S’Agaró. It also has some very elegant spots, such as the popular gazebo by the sea. Read on to know the details and enjoy it.

The coastal path from Platja d’Aro to S’Agaró is one of the most photographed and popular of the Costa Brava. Fortunately, this earned fame does not involve large crowds when making the way since it is a fairly wide road in its entirety, well paved and with little unevenness. It was one of the main advantages that I detected when I did it.
