From La Fosca, we will take the coastal route towards Palamós until linking up with a new bicycle lane. We continue left and, at the end of the cycling lane, we will have to follow the road closer to the sea and share it with other vehicles until we reach the beach of Palamós. At the southern extreme of the beach we will find ourselves in a car park between the beach and the sea walkway. When we start our climb, we will climb this walkway via one of the ramps and continue to the end. At the end of the bay, at the point where the cycling lane finishes and before an old lookout tower, we will follow the route that takes us to the C-31 road. Although this road has a high level of traffic in the summer period, it also has a clear border that will protect us from motorised traffic. Remember that you need to wear your fluorescent waistcoat to cycle on this road.


PALAMÓS
A traditional fishing village, its maritime front is full of evidence of this fact: the “trenyines” (typical fishing boats), the nets on the south part of the beach, the shops full of fishing art, the Llotja de Mar (maritime court) at the wharf and the Fishing Museum next to it.


THE FISHING MUSEUM AND THE ESPAI DEL PEIX
(Fish Workshop) in Palamós. We pass in front of these places of interest which are located in the port of Palamós just before reaching the beach of this bay. At the Fishing Museum we will learn all about fishing; about where and from where fishing is carried out, and about who is who in the world of fishing. Beside the museum we will find the Espai del Peix where we will be immersed in the gastronomy and culinary aspects of fishing products. We can also take part in the series of activities organised there, such as going sailing in an old boat with a lateen sail.


SANT ANTONI DE CALONGE AND CALONGE
The southern half of the bay through which the route passes falls within the town of Calonge - Sant Antoni. The coastal town is Sant Antoni, which is eminently touristic. In Calonge, we find the 8th century castle in the main square (Plaça Major). The gardens of the castle and the medieval walls are open and definitely worth a visit.


THE COASTAL PATHS (CAMINS DE RONDA)
By walking along one of these paths you can savour the essence, beauty and energy of the Costa Brava. From Sant Antoni we can choose to walk to Sant Feliu (5 to 6 hours) and you can be sure to find some charming little nooks and crannies that you will never forget. Just follow the GR signs. For bicycles, contact the Tinglado of Sant Feliu de Guíxols where the route finishes. They have an area for storing bicycles and also provide other services.
