On the way to Cala Nans lighthouse we’ll discover the southern shore of Cadaqués Bay, unspoilt and less crowded, in the typical rocky landscape of Cap de Creus. We’ll find Sa Sabolla beach, the lighthouse and the wonderful sights of the bay at the tip of Cala Nans.

On the way to Maçanet de Cabrenys stormy dark clouds cover the Albera
mountains. The sun doesn’t shine, but we are so keen on nature that we happily follow the Darnius road, breathing in the green across the woods. The landscape changes quickly, Mediterranean forest fades away and we soon find the mountainous vegetation of Albera and Salines. Surrounded by oaks and hollies we head towards the starting point of our route. Next to Maçanet, at a junction, Marc and Viviane are already waiting for us. They are the founders of E-bikes Tramuntana, an electric mountain bike rental company.
Imeet Javi, a great photographer and an even better friend, at a
cosy café in Santa Cristina d’Aro. With the assignment to develop a feature on the megalithic tour in Romanyà de la Selva, we begin our day with an easy chat while we walk serenely to the start of the trail.

The Baix Ter natural park not only includes the Montgrí mountain chain
and the Medes Islands but an immense diversity of landscapes, wildlife, villages, histories and trails. What a gift to be able to experience all this on our doorstep!
Someone told me about a small riding school run by Anna
Wintle and, from what I heard, I thought that she would be the right person and it would be the right place to get back to my old passion for horses.
Last year three families arranged to go out for a walk to the Stone
Beech Tree, north of Cantallops, in the Albera Natural Park, past Requesens castle. The people from the restaurant La Cantina—the old canteen of the castle and the starting point of our trek—assured us there was no way we could get lost: “After the water tank, take the first turning to the right and then continue straight on.”
We continue the tour parallel to the coastal path (the GR -92), towards the end of the Punta del Pau. The landscape appears crammed with sea urchins, sea grass, sea tomatoes, and some fish. Everything seems larger and closer than it really is. We are in no rush
