About Camí de la Ronda DAY 3 in Costa Brava

This three day walking (and swimming!) activity that traverses what I think is the most beutiful part of the GR-92, Camí de la Ronda Hiking trail between Palamós and Begur on the Costa Brava. The route passes via many small coves and beaches as well as the most stunning white fishing vilages such as S'Alaguer, Callella de Palafrugell, llafranc, Tamariu, Aigua Blava, Fornells, Sa Tuna and Aigiafreda before turning inland to finish at Begur.

This blog covers Day three from Aigua Blava/Fornells to Begur, a distance of 14km.

Starting in Aigua Blava and Fornells the trail follows an inland track up a forested hill that gives spectacular views of the coastline. After passing over the summit of the headland the trail gets a bit boring as we pass through several coastal urbanisations. Fortunately the trail soon picks up the coast again with a path over the Begur headland and dropping down into Sa Tuna. this is one of my favourite villages on this section of coastline because of the coloured houses and beautiful beach. I recommend swimming here and getting some patatas bravas.

Eventually, leaving this village the trail continues along the coast to Aiguafreda. This is a small cove with a slipway used for boating and other water sports. This is the last part of the three day trail that is on the coast so the last opportunity to swim. From here the route takes a forestall trail inland to Begur castle and town. Begur is an old medieval walled town with great restaurants and plenty of old buildings and boutique shops.

It is at Begur where the bus back to Barcelona can be taken.

Visiting Camí de la Ronda DAY 3 in Costa Brava

My Recomended places to swim between Aigua Blava/Fornells and Begur on day three are on Sa Tuna beach and Aiguafreda cove.

Take at least 3 litres of water and a full bottle of sun cream

Doing this as a three day trip means that it is viable to get the bus.
