From Hotel Acapulco we would like to propose a nice footpath beyond the coves from the “camino de ronda” which links Lloret de Mar from Sa Caleta till Cala Canyelles.
Whoever does this walking, will discover the real landscapes which give the sense to the Costa Brava name; paradisiacal places, virgins, and small coves with turquoise waters and rugged cliffs carved by the Mediterranean Sea.
Thus, beginning your journey from the Lloret de Mar front beach direction to Sa Caleta, a little Cave with “llaguts” (typical Catalan sailors boat)and d’En Platja Castle, a 1935 building which reminds a medieval castle and together being one of the most singular pictures from town. Just at the bottom of the castle, it begins the coast path for leading you around the seaboard until the Roca des Frares Cove (1 km, 15 minutes walking). This beautiful cove with rolling stones, rocks and crystalline water; it’s perfect for snorkelling, fishing and for its hidden nooks the naturism lovers will found the wished privacy there.
If you will go up the upstairs, at the top of the hill, it’s located the Puig Rodó sitting, a late Iberian settlement from the III Century B.C.
Following up the coast path direction to Cala Trons, you will enjoy the prettiest natural rockiest landscape from the path cliffs; just arriving to the biggest of them, you will be forced to use the grand staircase which goes up to the Montgoda neighbourhood. From now, pay attention to GR-92 marks because they will guide you through Ave. de la Torutuga and Ave. de Llevant until reach the little circus where the path stops. Take the sand way in front of you till you will arrive the tunnel where turning into the right you will arrive again to the upstairs that goes down to Sa Tortuga Cave, a nice grey rolling Stone beach and difficult access which it makes it a perfect beach in summer for its lowest occupancy.
From Tortuga cove to Cala Canyelles (2,6 Km, 33 minutes walking), you will swear a little bit caused for continues ups and downs between the housing developments, always you must follows the GR-92. Close to l’Aigua d’en Clos, you should go forward to your steps until the small circus thus the coast path become closed, from there following again the Ave. del Sol Eixent you will arrive to the Llevantina’s neighbourhood. Crossing the Golf field on the right you will have reached to Cala Canyelles development. Now, you only follow the way down and the GR marks till reaching the beach and the Marina of Lloret de Mar.
Cala Canyelles, rounded by cliffs full of pine trees, it’s a white sand beach divided in two by a large rocks. On it you will find different services for enjoying the aquatic sports, several bars and restaurants of a highest quality.
If someone of your partners have a reduced mobility disability, one of yours may accompany them at the end of the route by car. Cala Canyelles is just a 4 km from the town centre and once there you could park your car closet o the beach (parking place paying). The beach has enabled access for handicapped persons also as well as lying beds, umbrellas and rescue point… Then there aren’t excuses for a nice walking and sunbathing day on the beach!!!
