In this bathing area, very well-known for its caves, we find el Canadell esplanade. Under Can Jubert and el Canyissos (or under can Comes) there are little corners much loved by winter bathers, which lead us to a section of steps to Tres Pins, where we find the hotel la Torre, with the Calella watchtower built in 1597 to control the pirate attacks of the time, and from where the coastal path continues towards Llafranc.
Recommendations: follow the sea path, do not walk the path in stormy weather, wear comfortable footwear and take water with you.
