This is the main beach of Tossa de Mar but i prefer Es Codolar because is a small one. From the beach you have the most beautiful views...sea and Castillo de Tossa de Mar. Also is a very beautiful place to walking in the morning and night.

I just love this beach been to Tossa de Mar 3 times and this is the best beach to visit although it's busy and the sand/rock are hot on your feet the water is refreshing , as long as you don't swallow any as its very salty but where else is there such a wonderful view of a castle.

A very quiet and beautiful scenic place with Mediterranean on one side and the beautiful residences and hotels on the other side. Beautiful walking place in the morning and a very quiet serene beach

Large beach and not many people. The season finishes on 31st Oct so a good time to come. The sand is very gritty but clean. Sunbeds and brolly are normally 6euro each but we got them for 5 euro today. Weather still good for mid October. This fronts the lovely little town of tossa de Mar. A quiet and more... More

A long main beach in town - good sand - some beach cafes, most are on the main promonade. The town has a flash flood dry river bed that sepates the promonade from the beach. Beach is accessed over a couple of low bridges at two points. Nice

The beach has a very steep drop into the sea. It is very difficult to get out of the sea due to the steep drop from the beach. We found the beach to the left to be more child friendly

Good for strolling, swimming, snorkeling. A big slope when entering the sea can take you to undesired depths, but it is quite obvious since the water is transparent, clean.

sand and shingle steep drop in to sea not too good for paddling plenty of room towards the back of the beach as people all tend to go to the sea shore

The beach is fine gravel not sand as I expected, but has plenty of space to sit. The sea is clear as you would expect from a blue flag beach, but there is a big slope as you enter the water and it rises quickly from knee to waist level. Good for off shore snorkelling.

Always room on this clean beach. Boat ride from the beach to Loret is recommended. Water is clear and usually calm.
