A few weeks later, taking advantage of the good weather returning to Catalonia, we made the part of the route that had been pending of this stage of the round road. Last time we could only do from Begur to Calella de Palafrugellsince we couldn't get to Palamos. On this occasion, as it is often said that the experience is a degree, we had the logistics much better prepared. We were five people with two cars, one parked in the Fosca Creek, the end of the tour of that day and we got the five to the other car to go to the beginning of the road, Calella de Palafrugell, where we park. In both locations it was relatively easy to find free parking. Of course, we left the car about ten minutes walk from both beaches.

The GR-92 route has a section that runs through the interior, but there is another path that runs through the coves and is surely much more spectacular. We were a little disappointed with this tour because the truth is that on the inside the landscape is also not very beautiful. Of course, it is much more affordable than that of Begur to Calella de Palafrugell, and can be done in about two hours quietly.

From Calella de Palafrugell to the El Golfet urbanization (2.25 km).

Calella de Palafrugell It is one of the most charming towns and we did not mind returning there to start the road. That day was very hot, it was noon and people crowded the small beach. We pass under the mythical arcades and enjoy seeing people diving into the sea, reading sheltered under a table and even a painter immortalizing the landscape. You have to follow the coast walking south and, when you reach Francesc Erau street, a sign tells us that you have to take the street that goes through the interior of the town, but you can also go down the ramp and follow the path near the sea. Of course, in the first way you save yourself climbing more stairs.

Upon leaving the urbanized area we pass through a very well preserved and adequate section that runs along the sea from where you can see beautiful panoramic views of Calella de Palafrugell.

On this road there are access to small coves of rocks that are not prepared and there are signs that warn of the danger of going down to them. Come on, if you do it is at your own risk. At the end of the road we reach a crossroads. If we continue on the road to the left we go to the botanical garden of Cap Roig and if you climb the stairs on the right we follow the I walked round until reaching the urbanization of El Golfet.

From El Golfet to the cove of Castell (4.78 km; we carry 7.03 km)

As we climb the stairs that take us to the urbanization of El Golfet, a quote from the poet Joan Maragall welcomes us. Little by little, we are entering a wooded area and you have to go up until you reach Puig de Terme, about 140 meters high and from where you can see a beautiful view in a southerly direction. All in all, knowing what it is, I would have chosen to go along the coast rather than inland.

Once in Puig de Terme, the descent begins, which, like the ascent, is not pronounced. Two hours after starting our tour we arrive at the parking lot (for a fee) of the Cala de Castell. There, a map indicates the two routes in the area: the interior (GR-92) and the coast with the coves that can be followed from a fork in the road.

It was two o'clock in the afternoon, a sun of justice was falling and towards an incredible heat. The Castell Creek We were quite disappointed because it was like one of the many beaches that flood the Catalan coast, although without buildings. There are stalls for renting umbrellas and sunbeds and two very prepared beach bars. We sat in the shade in one of the bars and drank some refreshments to replenish energy and study our next movement. Finally, we decided to go back to Cap Roig along the coast road to see the coves.
