Along the coast of the Costa Brava (in the north-east of Spain) you’ll find a beautiful trail: the Camí de Ronda. The trail starts at Port Portbou in the north and ends in Uldecona. In this article, I’ll show you a beautiful part of the trail, between Llançà and Port de la Selva.
We start our hike at El Castellar, a peninsula next to the harbor of Llançà. You can climb El Castellar and from the top, you’ll have a great view of the area. At the far left, you can see our destination for today: Port de la Selva.
The beautiful bays of Llançà
After climbing El Castellar, you walk towards the south, with the bright blue Mediterranean sea at your left side. The path is paved very well and goes up and down, you will have to climb some stairs. Along the coast, you will see a couple of beautiful small bays, where you can relax.
Far de Punta s’Arenella
When you walk further south, you’ll leave Llançà. This is a beautiful part of Camí de Ronda, you will have some spectacular views. At some point you’ll reach the lighthouse Far de Punta s’Arenella, which is on a fenomenal location.
Going to Port de la Selva
When you leave the lighthouse, it’s only a short hike to Port de la Selva. Port de la Selva is a nice little town, in a bay. A perfect spot to go for a great Spanish lunch or hang out at the beach. From Port de la Selva, you can choose to hike further, into the mountains or take a bus to Llançà.
