On one side, the green of the pine trees; on the other side, the blue of the sea. On the Costa Brava there are no walks more spectacular than the ones along the coastal footpaths, a wonderful way to discover small coves, vertiginous cliffs, charming beaches and other unmissable coastal beauty spots.

The rocky point of Platja d’Aro is the departure point for a coastal path that communicates with Torre Valentina beach, in the municipality of Calonge. The route goes through tunnels at places and is characterised by its magnificent panoramic views. Ramis point, Rovira beach, the passage known as the Xuclador, the little beach of Sa Cova, the small bays of Pitxot, Vilaret or Pi, the rocky point of Escuits make a windy route dotted with rocks that mix in with the vegetation. From the route, you can see the so-called Rodones de Dintre and de Fora, a set of reefs that appear and disappear with the force of the waves.

The coastal path continues through several places such as Ros beach and Es Canyers beach, Belladona and Sant Jordi beaches. The latter is in the middle of a point of rocks that reach out to the islet of the same name. At this point, there is a tiny corner sheltered by the very wall of the coastal path.

Cap Roig beach is next, surrounded by a wall of cement over which you can walk. From here, you can see the surface of the sea full of rocks and reefs. Next are the Ermita, Ses Torretes, Treumal (Cala Gogó) and Can Cristus beaches.

Here, the point of Malpàs, which communicates with the bay called Les Roques Planes, makes an area that is different from the rest of the coast, marked by the strange appearance given to it by the grey rocks rounded off by erosion.

Then the path continues along a section dotted with small red rocks that ends up in Torre Valentina beach, in Sant Antoni de Calonge.
