Quiet and beautiful, one of the nicest beaches in the Costa Brava. The landscape is amazing, a black rock emerges and divides de beach in two.

This is a lovely beach, gorgeous soft sand, safe sea to swim and cool off in, rocks to catch fish and crabs around. Very child friendly with all amenities including a couple of restaurants. Plenty of parking available as well. Including free parking if you look.

Nice beach and certainly not crowded in Oktober. The cafes, bars and rstaurants are already closing or closed for the season. Probably very crowded in the high season. Not far from Palamos, aprox. 1/2 hour walk.

Pretty beach but so too many people. Shame not more there in the way of shops and nicer restaurants or cafes.

Stopped off here between other resorts simply cos we'd never been before. Can be busy. Yet that's what everywhere is like in summer isn't it? This is a very scenic small bay with rocky headlands. Good choice of bars etc directly off the beach. Safe water for kids. An awesome place for the unattached on sunnier days in Spring &... More

If your idea of a perfect beach is gently sloping sand and being able to stand with your head above water 100 metres out, combined with a collection of beachside bars selling beer and Gin and Tonics this is a must.

It's a nice beach at the outskirts of Palamos, sandy beach with clean water but too busy, it's hard to find a place to put the towel.

Great location for day on the beach with family. Not overcrowded like the major beach resorts in the area.
