Opening of the new Palamos to Castell Cami de Ronda

The new Cami de Ronda that improves and updates the path from Palamos, around La Fosca to Platja de Castell opened today.

There are new raised wooden paths around the back of the Palamos Port that finally give Palamos a full coastal path connection, and routes to La Fosca and on to Castell have been updated. The path behind the port in particular is very welcome and the wooden walkways and bridge are excellent connections taking walkers away from the old road route (how they will hold up after a couple of winters will be interesting).

There has been some controversy locally, as the new paths have a lot more concrete and have removed some of the rustic feel of the old paths, particularly behind the picture postcard bay of S'Alguer which used to be more of a track, and now feels like walkway. Given the tendency for GR92 routes to age and weather, I think we'd be willing to see how it beds in.

We'll add some photos in the coming weeks. Meanwhile today was the first time for ages that the Costa Brava has felt busy. The easing of lockdowns for the Spanish has brought tons of people up from Barcelona, glad to get out of the city. Restrictions are still in place limiting numbers of people in restaurants, but it felt like the first day of holiday after a long period stuck in. We saw walkers and cyclists all over, taking advantage of the sunny weather and fresh air.

The lockdown was eased a couple of weeks ago, so we could finally leave Baix Emporda after 3 months confined to our locality. We have a report to write up from Vallfogona de Ripolles from a couple of weeks ago when we could finally get out to the mountains. France is still on lockdown which means many fewer foreign visitors. Let's hope the easing lasts...
