The beaches of the Costa Brava are gorgeous and varied. If you like small inlets, or calas, there are Sa Tuna, Aigua and the Beach at Begur just to name a few. For a broad promenade with restaurants and sand, Calonge may be the place for you. For the charm of seaside restaurants with a view of the beach and harbor, Palamos, LLafranc and others are a great place to head for lunch
Our favorite! You will drive down a winding, beautiful cliff and catch wonderful views of the turquoise waters.
A very charming, pebble beach.
A great beach for swimming, surrounded by cafe’s and shops.
San Feliu de Guixols
A swankier enclave, the surrounding houses are the most expensive in the region. You can have a drink, tapa or meal next to the beach, and remember: pinky up!
This is a long sandy beach. You can walk over a steep walkway from Sa Riera to the beach at Pals if you’re looking for a little exercise and some scenery. Pals isn’t as picturesque as Sa Riera, but it is easier to park there, and there tend to be bigger waves that kids tend to enjoy :).
Sant Antoni de Calonge
A long beach with stores, restaurants and a walkway for cycling and walking. For the active folks seeking some exercise before relaxation, try cycling over the mountain to get here.
This beach has ancient Roman ruins nearby. To get to the beach, you go to the entrance of the ruins at Empuries. There is also a promenade between the beach and the hotel. You can walk or take a little tram from there into the little town of L’Escala, where Picasso used to often paint.
