In today's video we are sharing with you Day 4 of our Great Mediterranean Coast Hike where we walked through Colera, Llançà and Selva de Mar in Costa Brava.
We started our day feeling very refreshed and energized after having a nice rest at the camping Sant Miquel in Colera, Spain. We had a plan to make 15 kms to the town Selva de mar further down the coast and hoped that the relief and the weather will work in our favor. When we were leaving Colera for the first time during this hike we felt the piece of our heart was left in this place. It seemed so cosy and home-like to us and we were definetely considering going back here to stay for several days when we finish the hike. So we said goodbye to this beautiful place and started to climb up the first hill for the day. As always we were determined to go as close to the coastline as possible and go over every cliff. And so after the first hill we came down to the beach Playa de Garbet. There it was so tempting to get in the water that we almost decided to jump into it but then we realized that the shower on that beach didn't work. And hiking all day long with salty shoulders didn't seem a good idea so we had to surrender to this fact and continue hiking. During the next several kms we met plenty of stunning little beaches scattered along the cliffs that looked like a great place to chill out. But we were happy just enjoying the beautiful views and breathing the fresh salty air. The sun however was really getting at us burning our skin and striking our heads. So we were hiding and searching for the shadow all the time. Then we entered the town of Llanca where we had to do a little break in the shadow of the park. It was the best decision cause this way we could wait for the heat to come down and continue hiking in the more comfortable conditions. The sky started to cover in clouds and it saved our day. The last 7 kms we were walking on a really nice pavement route made out of rocks and it was just a perfect idyllic route for taking a peaceful walk that was connecting the town of Llanca to Selva de Mar. On the way we met a beautiful lighthouse Far de s´Aranella as well as lots of great views over Cap de Creus that was the final destination of our hike. So in a very peaceful mood but a bit tired from the heat we got to the outskirts of La Selva de Mar...
