Coastal Route to the Tossa de Mar: You can reach the town of Tossa de Mar five kilometres away with a good hour's walk along a lovely coastal route. The well-marked walking route follows the wild, hilly coastline through a pristine nature conservation area. Tossa De Mar: The small fishing village of Tossa de Mar is just 5 km from Giverola Resort. With its quaint houses and spectacular flowers, the medieval old town perched on a hill has a special charm all its own. At the same time, Tossa boasts a lively holiday atmosphere with numerous galleries, bars, restaurants and little shops selling souvenirs and local products. The beaches – especially in summer – are hopping. And on the water too, with numerous daily boats from Giverola and Pola along the rugged coastline to Tossa. A hotel shuttle bus also runs between Giverola Resort and Tossa de Mar. Our tip for boating enthusiasts: Take the glass-bottom boat Fondo Cristal directly from the Giverola cove beach to Tossa de Mar and visit the beautiful caves on the way back. The cities of Sant Feliu and Playa D’Aro can also be visited by boat directly from the Cala Giverola.
