Stage 10: Route description
From Tossa de Mar to Lloret de Mar
We can take a relaxed approach to the final stage of our hike: It is only a half-day hike to Lloret de Mar.
Those who don't want to spend the night in Lloret, which is known as a party town, but want to continue directly by bus to Barcelona, should already buy a bus ticket in Tossa de Mar for the buses of the Moventis/Sarfa company, which require reservations. (Tickets at the bus station in Tossa de Marthe starting point of our stage).
The first part of today's hike takes us up to a viewing platform with a view back to Tossa de Mar. Shortly afterwards, there are signs indicating the end of the Camí de Ronda. This does not bother us: we follow the GR-92, which branches off to the right here. This leads us briefly to the coastal road and then in a curve around a gated holiday home settlement down to the beach of Canyelles. In the marina there is a nice little restaurant with seating directly on the quay wall.
From here, we climb stairs and pass through more holiday home settlements until we descend a steep serpentine staircase to the sea. There we walk along a beautiful path with stone walls in the direction of Lloret de Mar, from where we are met by more and more short excursionists. After a very picturesque stretch of coast with crystal-clear water, it is no longer possible to ignore the dense development of Lloret de Mar after a short tunnel.
A few hundred metres from the beach, in front of the Hotel Hawai, is the first bus stop in the direction of Barcelona(see also Bus connection to Barcelona).

Overnight stay in Lloret de Mar
We didn't stay overnight in Lloret de Mar ourselves, but went straight on to Barcelona. However, there is a reader's tip from Stefan for an overnight stay in Lloret de Mar: The 15th Boutique Hotel is supposed to be very good (4-star, link: 15th Boutique Hotel).
