“Les Costes del Garraf” is the most spectacular sealine tour of Sitges, Garraf coast and Barcelona. If you do a tour of this area by kayak is the best way to discover the cliffs, nooks and coves.
This coast is characterized by its rocky appearance with limestone cliffs, where we will find a diversity of coves, cliffs and caves, … and where we will be able to see cormorants and other animals and birds depending on the time of year. It is also one of the few green areas remaining on the coast between Barcelona and Tarragona, a green lung that remains quite unspoilt, despite urban pressure, and other infrastructure and industrial attacks. It is populated with white pine, palm hearts (native and protected palm), rosemary, among other vegetation. During the journey we will meet several pebble coves and caves. On a calm sea day we can go along the ends, the coves and the cliffs almost touching the rock or passing between the rocks.
The tour can be done in different ways depending on the level, the interest and the time available, so we propose:
– 2 hours excursion, for families, groups of friends, initiation, … Look at the “Sitges Coves” Family Tour “ https://cota-zero.cat/en/family-tour-sitges-coves/
