It was such a beautiful day that we went straight to the coast and decided to leave balnearis for another day! We did stop off in Caldes de Malavella and found out that one of the huge hotel spas didn't really cater for day trippers while the other - Hotel Vichy Catalan - offers lots of different packages for a reasonable price.
But....leave the dogs in the van while we relaxed in mineral bathes? Not possible.
So we went to a beach called St Pol near Sant Feliu de Guixols, had a slow walk around the coast path and then a long and even slower lunch in El Racó de St Pol.
There are some lovely seaside houses on this part of the coast - places to dream about and imagine how it would be to go down for early morning swims in the green blue sea.
