This 2 kilometres path hugs the coast, with the sea a constant companion to your side, from the district of Pilons, in the tourist hub, to Replanells, on Cape Salou. Historically, these paths followed the coastline and were used for sea surveillance and by the fishermen. The complete revamping of this path now makes it possible to stroll along the coast and see sites that were impossible to get to for many years.

The Camí de Ronda winds through stunningly beautiful landscapes. Besides the amazing views, the path passes by beaches and coves, making it a unique way to get to know Cape Salou. From Pilons, the path heads south and goes past Capellans Beach, where you can see the remains of the former quarantine station, which was built in 1829. Next is Llenguadets Cove, where you can see the bunkers built during the Spanish Civil War. The last section takes you past Llarga Beach, a natural setting, now far from the tourist area.

The path reaches a maximum height above sea level of 77 metres, with sections that are a bit difficult, although the majority of the route can be done by everyone.

Cape Salou offers another possibility. Due to its location, you can see sea birds that are difficult to spot from the beach. With a telescope or binoculars, you may catch a glimpse of shearwaters, jaegers, gannets, puffins, razorbills, loons, different migrating birds and sea ducks, such as common and velvet scoters. Different species of gulls can also be spotted, including the Andouin’s gull, which is quite abundant and easy to see in the spring and autumn.
