Circular walk on Cap Béar

Topo de randonnée du Cap Béar

The circuit – 14km, 650m ascent

Port Vendres is at the very end of the Pyrenees. Walkers on the GR10 normally dip their feet in the Mediterranean at Banyuls but Cap Béar just to the north is worth a visit.

The circuit is waymarked in yellow (most of the time). Starting from Port Vendres it follows the coast on the Charles Rennie Mackintosh trail. A steep climb takes you to the headland followed by visits to a series of coves and down to the Paulilles beach, peaceful now although it was the site of a munitions factory until 1984. Return to Port Vendres via the vineyards and the village of Cosprons. Thanks to the  Indépendant and Christophe Levillain for the idea.
