The coastal path (hiking trail n° GR 223)

Sometimes high on the rocks, sometimes low in the valleys, the footpath always amazes walkers with the variety and contrast of its landscapes. An exuberant nature offers a spectacle of light and shadows, colours, sounds and fragrances.
Every minute that passes on the coastal path appears under a new light, every view sketched on the skyline is another landscape. Experienced hiker or Sunday walker - up hill and down dale, whatever the season, you step from surprise to surprise on the custom's path!
