A decent stretch of sand in this bay and in October it was very quiet. Good rollers for gentle surfing.

We enjoyed the late season sunshine, the lovely surroundings and plenty of room on the beach. Parking is not that easy, but we found a space reasonably close. Chairs and umbrella were 15 Euros, situated near the Hostal la Fosca, which was good for lunch.

I have done this walk a number of times with my dog and absolutely love it! It's not so up and down as some of the coastal paths and takes about 40mins there and back. There are places to have a coffee either end too...More

Nice beach to spend the day, there is a hiking trail which takes you along the coast, worth the hike!

Just a 15 minute walk from Palamos this beach is very pleasant with plenty of facilities. As we visited it in August it was busy but that is to be expected. There are restaurants right on the beach that we're busy. Plus there are ships...More

Love it here. Really great sandy beach which is excellent for families. Safe swimming for young kids and close to amenities (toilets, shops, bars, restaurants)

Very nice sandy beach. Quite small but calm, protected from wind due to the small rocky gulf that surrounds it. Warm and clear water.

The beaches in this area are lovely. I visited Cala Castell more and found this to be very nice and family friendly.
