The central Coast
The large beaches of fine-grained sand in Pals (it is highly recommended to walk around the medieval town inland off the Playa de Pals) contrast with their neighbors, in Begur, where the rocks and cliffs return, creating small coves surrounded by nature and with little urbanization. We must especially mention Sa Tuna, a charming little fishing spot. Then, the three beaches of Palafrugell follow the same line; the first is Tamariu, small, pleasant and welcoming, then comes Llafranc, with its glamour and great gastronomy, and finally Calella de Palafrugell, with its traditional fishermen-houses, down to the seashore and being the undisputed capital of Habaneras.
One special case is Platja d’Aro with its bustling commerce 365 days a year and the top leisure centre, day and night, on the central Costa Brava. The non-stop activity of Platja d’Aro contrasts with the peaceful calm of S’Agaró and its Sant Pol beach, a perfect place to walk and swim, crowned by one of the most exclusive residential areas on the Girona coastline.
The journey through the central Costa Brava ends at Sant Feliu de Guixols, a fishing town with a great nautical tradition and a private arts centre owned by Baroness Thyssen.
