With steep cliffs and pine covered hills reaching down to the Mediterranean, simple houses and open air restaurant lining the beautiful bay - Tamariu is a village visited by travellers year after year.
There are no high rise blocks, smaller complex and villas scattered around the hillside of Aigua Xelida and the beach. There, accommodation is generally a few hotels, all budget to mid-price range, one campsite, and a few apartments.
Tamariu has a small selection of village shops, a diving centre and offers the possibility of renting a boat to explore the surrounding coastline.
The area is best suited to mature, independent, middlemarket holidaymakers. It is frequented by international visitors and lots of Spanish families at weekends. There are not a lot for children and it is way too quiet for teenagers.
calella de palafrugell
Calella de Palafrugell is the largest of Palafrugell`s beach resorts and consists of a series of pretty coves strung out like pearls behind a fishing village with whitewashed arches on the promenade. Fishing boats are pulled up on the sand and the seafood restaurants beside the water are always busy.
Development here has been low-rise and low-key; this old-fashioned resort seems to have found a middle way between the excesses of mass tourism and the exclusivity of some of its smaller neighbours. A cliff path leads to Llafranch (Llafranc) making a delightful stroll. High above the bay the Jardi Botanic de Cap Roig is a botanical garden offering stunning views.
Regarded by many as the most beautiful resort on the Spanish mainland this is a traditional fishing village with sandy coves and beaches providing a relaxing holiday environment.
The coastal walk from the botanical gardens and El Golfet beach to Calella`s twin village Llafranch takes you along some of the Costa Brava`s (Catalonia)most picturesque bays.
The beaches, restaurants, bars and small shops in the villages make this walk an absolute must. Take a walk or bicycle ride into the woods and fields behind the coast and you enter a tranquil rural world.
Calella de Palafrugell is a small holiday resort and fishing village in Catalunya Spain on the Costa Brava near Palafrugell and a short distance along the coast from Llafranc. It should not be confused with the larger, more commercialised resort of Calella, which is further south towards Barcelona.
Calella de Palafrugell has an excellent setting and, whilst busy in the summer season, it has does not have the large hotels and mass tourism of other Costa Brava resorts such as Lloret de Mar. The coastline of the town stretches some two kilometres south to the El Golfet beach - part of the Cap Roig headland where beautiful Botanical gardens are located
The bay of Sa Conga lies between S'Agaro and Platja d'Aro. You can reach the beach by taking the third exit on the roundabout towards Platja. After a few kilometers, you see a exit to the port of Sa Conga (A village with very luxury villas). Follow this road past the harbor all the way to the end (with a curve to the right) until you see a group of pine trees. Here you park your car and you have stairs that leads you to the beach. The beach is relatively small, with very clear water and lots of fish. Very nice beach to go snorkeling. The beach consists of small gravel

sant marti démpuries
The lovely village of St Marti d'Empuries is a gentle half hour stroll from L'Escala, along a shaded promenade running beside to the golden beaches. The pathway passes between the ruins of the ancient Greek & Roman city of Empuries and the sea.
The walled village itself is built over the oldest buildings of Empuries and had effectively been permanently occupied since the bronze age. It is considered to be the oldest settlement in Catalonia, with even the church dating from the 11th century.
This modest mediaeval village is famous in Catalonia for it's beautiful endless, fine sand beaches with excellent views of the Bay of Roses, the restaurants that dominate the small village square, and an impressive eleventh-century church.
A visit to this special village is strongly recommended, although getting a table at one of the restaurants in the village square is difficult in peak season. They are a favourite haunt of customers coming to dine from as far afield as Barcelona and France.
The beaches are next to those form sant pere de pescador, however on this part of the beach you will find several chiringuitos ( little restaurants) were the drinks and food are affordable. These chiringuitos will only be open in summer.
Because this beach is long and wide you will always be able to find a spot with a little privacy.
Definitely one of our favorites
