5 must-visit viewpoints in Tossa de Mar

Whatever vantage point you choose to view the seaside town of Tossa de Mar, it always looks very charming. These are the 5 viewpoints that you have to visit during your stay in this Costa Brava village.

Punta d'es Cars

To enjoy some 100% Costa Brava vistas, you have to walk up to the Punta d'es Cars viewpoint. You can get there on foot following Camí de Ronda heading to Lloret de Mar, starting at the Es Codolar beach. Otherwise, you can drive there following the Torre dels Moros road to Tossa de Mar's upper part. A pleasurable view that offers you total peace and quiet.

Far de Tossa

Climbing up a lighthouse ensures some spectacular views because such towers used to be built on elevated peaks offering maximum view span of the sea. So Far de Tossa is a must-see viewpoint, where you can have a rest and a drink at the terrace overlooking some exclusive views of the Mediterranean. To get there, walk up the cobblestoned streets in the old town or follow the town wall from the Gran beach.

Torre dels Moros

This viewpoint is nearly clandestine, in other words it isn't very well-known, where some locals go to find some peace and quiet close to the village. You still can find the "Torre dels Moros" (Moorish tower) built in the 16th century by Felip II to warn seaside dwellers of pirates' raids.

Santt Feliu road viewpoint

Those who have been to Tossa de Mar and haven't taken any picture from this vantage point, must come back! You can make an idyllic panoramic shot of the Tossa bay seen from here. To get here via the St Feliu de Guíxols road, a few minutes away from Tossa. Sunsets are spectacular here!

Puig de Cadiretes (519 m.)

The 5th viewpoint can't be skipped at all. It tops the Massís de Cadiretes range, where you can enjoy a panoramic 360º view of the rugged Costa Brava and lush and scenic Mediterranean vegetation. You can get up there walking or cycling, following the signposted itineraries starting from Tossa de Mar, or driving by the Santuari de Sant Grau.
