We have just spent a fortnight in this lovely part of the world and visited this beach often. It is a beautiful beach - with one good beach bar and several public toilets (temporary ones what weren’t amazing but better than nothing!!). The sea is...More

This lovely beach is very big so you can find space for yourself to enjoy a peaceful visit. Good for families. Great surf to play in.

This is a large, very clean beach a with a pretty landscape. There are two lifeguards on duty, two bars/cafés, a medical point and kayak hire located on the beach. The area is best known for picturesque, smaller, rocky coves. Those are indeed beautiful, but...More

I walked to this beach from Palamos along the coastal path. It is a lovely walk but not for the fainthearted. The beach itself has car parking nearby, 2 bars for lunch (possibly evening too) and water sport facilities.

Platja de Castell beach was easy to reach (by car), 5 Eur all-day parking on a big lot (in the sun). The beach itself was archetypal: half moon, perfect, clean sand, two stands for snacks and drinks, gentle slope into the water. Beach was clearly...More

Beautiful large sandy beach in an area of natural beauty. As its protected there are no permanent buildings but there are two beach bars with toilets, but they are quite expensive so take your own refreshment. Can hire kayaks and canoes too which is great...More
