Leave from Platja de Riells, walking along Port de la Clota. The path leads to the must-visit MARAM, the Fish Interpretation Centre. Walk to the end of the marina to the area with military bunkers to Punta dels Cinc Sous, and turn right towards the steep Platja de l’illa Mateua. Return to the starting point the same way, the path coinciding entirely with the GR92.
