The best beaches on the Costa Brava
Just half an hour from Casa Anamaria are the beaches of Costa Brava. The Costa Brava extends along the northern coastline of Catalonia in the province of Girona, from Blanes to the French border. Sun, sand, hidden coves among the vegetation, crystal-clear waters, tranquillity, long walks along the Camí de Ronda hiking trail, and fishing villages with lots of charm. If you’re looking for beautiful Mediterranean seaside spots, here are just some of the coastal towns we think you’ll enjoy.
In the beautiful town of L’Escala, for example, you will find Riells Beach with fine sand and shallow waters, making it ideal for families with children; Montgó Cove is a fine-sand cove protected from the north winds; and the Illa Mateua Cove is a rocky cove ideal for scuba diving.
Another example is the beach located in the bohemian village of Cadaqués, which stands out among the towns of the Cap de Creus area due to its uniqueness and authenticity. In Cadaqués you'll find both fine-sand and rocky cove beaches. Beaches Grand beach and Portdugué beach are ideal spots for families, owing to their shallow waters and sandy areas. Es Pianc offers magnificent vistas overlooking the town, especially at sunset. In addition to its coves and beaches, we recommend a visit to the old quarter of Cadaqués, where you can get lost in its labyrinthine streets made of unique paving, made from stones taken from the seashore that have been shaped by the tides. They have been laid in a herring-bone pattern in order to absorb the water and prevent people from slipping.
