The route is typically referred to as the Camino de Ronda or the Cami de Ronda – but it’s made up of multiple coastal paths running from Blanes to Portbou on the Catalan coast of Spain.

This Blog Series will cover a combination of paths from the Camino de Ronda, the GR 92 and its local variants – all of which make up the Costa Brava Coastal Path system. All are fairly well marked and lightly traveled which makes for a great hike with the most stunning views of the Costa Brava region and plenty of hidden coves and beaches to take a dip.

Salty sea breezes, colorful flowers that reminded me of bowls of Easter eggs, skies that stretched forever and ever, burning calf muscles, salty sweat running down my forehead, and methodical crashing waves; this what I experienced my last two weeks in Costa Brava Spain hiking the Cami de Ronda coastal trails. I finally accomplished my […]
“I don’t know how you travel with dad, I don’t think I could do it,” my siblings often mention to me. We all have distinct memories of growing up and my father being the ‘leader’ of the family and family trips. He was the one who made all the decisions and ultimately the family dictator. […]
