EuroVelo 8 in Spain will run along the Mediterranean coast, but as yet only a handful of sections are open.
One of them is here in Catalonia, two-thirds traffic-free. The route also forms part of the outstanding Pirinexus circular tour.
Until you reach the inevitable crossing of the Pyrenees and the French border, EV8 here is pretty gentle riding, calling in at coastal resorts such as Platja d'Aro and l’Escala. Easy access from Girona airport and Roses (where the European Bike Express tour bus runs) makes this a plausible start point for cycle tourists tackling the whole Mediterranean route.
