The coastal path, Camí de Ronda, connects Llafranc to its neighbour Calella, a lovely little fishing village with whitewash buildings rising up from the sea. Stop off en route at one of the fabulous restaurants and enjoy some delicious fresh fish! This is a fairly easy, well-signposted walk taking about 30 minutes. The path enjoys spectacular views out to sea to the distant Illes Formigas or ‘ant islands’, so named as they are said to resemble ants walking along the horizon. The islands were the scene of a decisive naval battle when, in August 1285, a French squadron was routed by the Catalan fleet under the command of Roger de Llúria.
Going the other way, walk up to the lighthouse (uphill) and then follow the signs for Tamariu. This is a lovely walk, much further than the walk to Calella and some of the track is unmade and rocky so wear sensible shoes! For early risers, to watch the sunrise from the lighthouse is an unforgettable experience as it traces a silvery pathway across the sea from the horizon to the coast.
Many coves are to be found along these coastal paths ideal for snorkeling
