After a great night out with a few brandies, we were all feeling a little bit delicate on the morning of day three, so we decided the best plan of action would be to go out for some brunch. Federal Cafe on Carrer de la Força was our choice of restaurant, and I was delighted to receive a big plate of delicious scrambled eggs and bacon with sourdough toast.
Once nourished, we decided to make the most of our last day on our break and headed off on another day trip, this time to Tossa de Mar. I was excited about having a refreshing swim in the Mediterranian, but first, we had to navigate two buses.
There was no direct bus from Girona, so we first travelled to Lloret de Mar, and took a connecting bus to Tossa de Mar from there. In total, the journey takes about an hour (not including waiting time for a connecting bus).
Tossa de Mar is a picturesque fishing village with a beautiful sandy beach and a lovely walk up to an ancient medieval castle with stunning views. After appreciating the vistas from all around the castle ruins, we headed to the small sandy cove of Playa Es Codolar for an exhilarating swim, what a brilliant way to end our day.
By the time we had our swim and a quick bite to eat it was getting late, so we travelled back to Girona for our last evening of relaxing before catching our flight back to Ireland the next morning.
We had a fabulous time, and I would recommend Girona for a girl’s trip or couple’s getaway. I’m already thinking of bringing Ronan here for a few nights away next year. There’s plenty to do and see in Girona over a couple of days, or even a full week if you go on some day trips.
