BEACHES AND COVES

When it comes to beaches, the Costa Brava is special. Although its seafront is stony and wild – which is why it’s called the Costa Brava (Wild Coast) – the landscape can suddenly become softer, giving way to wide beaches with different textures of sand. Then, and every bit as appealing, there are the hidden-away coves to be found just below the high rocks of the coastline. A great place to appreciate this variety is Palamós.

All the town’s beaches are easy to reach on foot or by vehicle and give beachgoers the option of choosing between the sandy beaches of Gran de Palamós, La Fosca or Castell, the rocky Cala Margarida or Cala S’Alguer coves, or a mixture of the two, such as Cala Estreta.

Palamós’ coastal path links all these beaches and coves, inviting visitors to enjoy unique scenery surrounded by pine trees at the edge of the sea.
