Costa Brava Coast Hike and Snorkel from Barcelona Including Lunch

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Leave Barcelona in the morning, and relax on the journey northeast with your guide and small group. Your destination of the day? A beautiful stretch of the Costa Brava coast known as Platia de Castell. With your hiking shoes on, hop out of your minivan and start your 3-3.5-hour coastal hike to discover one of the most serene parts of the Costa Brava.

    The winding cliff-top route is akin to a walk through history. Pass alongside the ruins of a 6th-century Iberian village, perched high on a rugged promontory, and listen to stories about the area’s past. The views are impressive, and the twists and turns of the coastal path frequently give way to jaw-dropping vistas of the Med, lashing against the rocks below.

    Make your way down to remote coves and sandy beaches, and enjoy several breaks to cool down with a swim or snorkel. Equipment is provided; you just need your bathing suit. After just over three hours exploring the coastline, finish your hike at Calella de Palafrugell — a tiny village on a bay that’s graced by fishermen’s houses and whitewashed villas.

    Head inside one of the village’s seafront restaurants, and relax with a 3-course lunch. Finally, step back inside your minivan for the journey back to Barcelona. Your tour finishes at the start point.

    This was a beautiful coastal hike along Costa Bravo. We stopped to swim and snorkel, and had an opportunity to jump from a rocky edge into clear turquoise waters. Be prepared for a moderately difficult hike of 3+ hours, wear appropriate shoes, wear bathing suit,...More
