You can reach Tossa de Mar via the N-II highway or the A-7/E-15 motorway and then the C-35 road. From there, the GI-681 road takes you to Tossa de Mar.
Set out from the bus station down Avinguda del Pelegrí and Carrer de la Guàrdia. You’re already on the GR, which continues down this street until it reaches the Torre dels Moros or Moorish Tower. The GR climbs up the left way.
Following the Route:
Pass by Suros del Santos to Els Cars. At the end of the rise (about 1.2 km from the starting point) follow the main path to a TV relay station, which you will see to your right. 2.5 km from there you will come to the Lloret road (GI-682), which you have to follow for another 2.2 km. When you reach km 16.800 of this road, turn off and take the road leading to the left and downward. You will walk through a residential estate to the left, and when you reach the 5.7-km point the dirt track becomes a paved road. It goes back to dirt at km 6.2, and here you have to turn left towards Cala Morisca. By km 6.650 you reach Can Juncadella, which you must skirt around taking the path to the right, leaving behind the path to the left, which enters the property. Here you may have problems finding the path again.
At km 7.00 you will reach another residential estate. Take the dirt path that leads downward and then turn left onto Carrer Gènova, which is paved, and leads to Cala Canyelles, passing by the Plaça de les Nacions Unides. Turn right, and before reaching the marina, climb the steps that lead off to the right, and then turn left onto Carrer de França. You will find a tunnel, but don’t cross under it; rather, follow Ronda d’Europa towards a restaurant and then follow Carrer d’Anglaterra. After 100 metres, turn left and then right. You will find a dirt track, which you must follow until you pass the entrance to the La Llevantina Residential Estate, to your left. Then take the cement path that goes off to the right. Km 9.800: Take the road that leads to the Cala Tortuga Residential Estate, and 400 metres farther down, a track takes you to the Mongoda Residential Estate. Take Carrer Costa de Llevant and go down, turning left onto Carrer de les Gavines and then onto Carrer de la Tortuga. A flight of steps takes you down to the seaside and the Camí de Ronda, the coastal footpath that continues along Lloret de Mar’s seaside promenade.
You’re on the GR 92, so you can extend the itinerary by continuing on down section 10 (Sant Feliu de Guíxols-Tossa de Mar) or 12 (Lloret de Mar-Tordera).
Tossa de Mar is one of the most mythical towns of the Costa Brava. The Old Town is within a walled enclosure dating back to the 12th-14th centuries, with a number of cylindrical towers that are very well preserved. Tossa was an important art centre in the 1930s, and it continues to preserve the artistic ambience. Works by great painters like Marc Chagall hang in the Municipal Museum.
Lloret de Mar
Tossa de Mar beach.
is one of Spain’s most popular tourist resorts, but it still preserves places of great interest like the Puig Castellet Iberian settlement,
the romantic Santa Clotilde
gardens, the castle,
a number of houses
owned originally by the Indianos (as the locals who went to try out their fortunes in the Americas were known), or the Sant Quirze hermitage
, which dates back to the 11th century. The two towns boast some of the Costa Brava’s best coves.
Observations and Recommendations:
The itinerary goes through a number of residential estates. Though the GR signs are there, there are a lot of roads and forks that can cause you to doubt which way to go. Tossa and Lloret are both served by public transport, with a regular bus line connecting the two. Though the itinerary is linear, you should have no problems getting back to the starting point.
