La Foradada waterfall, Cantonigros

A stunning place to visit just under a 1.5hr drive from Lloret de Mar. There is ample carparking but the walk down to the waterfall can be quite difficult at times. From the car park we reached the waterfall after a 30-35 minute walk. The pathway is very slippy in some parts so you need to wear shoes with a good grip on the soles...trainers or something similar. You can hear the water as you are about half down the pathway and it gets louder and louder the nearer you get, once there the noise is can hardly hear each other talking! In the summer months its said that it gets very busy so if your aim is to go get some good shots of the area then go earlier in the year.
