The best beaches on the Costa Brava

Wild landscape, crystal clear sea that ends in coves and beaches of all shapes and colors that can be imagined. Solitary, quiet, to be with the family, to spend the day, to enjoy with the children… At Delfín Verde we recommend our favorite coves and beaches.

Fonollera beach, next to the resort

Playa de la Fonollera, also known as Gola de Ter beach, is an idyllic spot that is not very visited. Ideal for bathing in the Ter estuary and being dragged out to sea. Temperature and color contrasts to enjoy. Ideal for children to enjoy to the fullest. A beautiful place overlooking the Medes Islands. It is a protected area, which consists of a clean beach of golden sand and clear blue water and wetland full of reeds. There is a zone nearby where dogs are allowed.

L’Estartit beach

A good beach, with fine sand, clean water and a well-kept area. The sandy area of the beach is quite large. It has a small promenade with numerous services and restaurants. Ideal for children. Free parking on the beach itself.

Cala Sa Boadella

The bay Sa Boadella, surrounded by a natural environment of rocks and lush vegetation, is one of the best beaches in Lloret de Mar. This beach, about 200 meters long, where nudism is allowed on the right, is perfect for relaxing and disconnecting from the tourist town of Lloret de Mar.

Cala Pola in Tossa de Mar

Pola Bay is located about 6 kilometers from Tossa de Mar, on the road to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, and is one of the most beautiful bays on the Costa Brava. At about 80 meters in length, it is hidden in a small rocky cove and it is one of the places that we are sure you will never forget.

Illa Roja beach in Begur

Illa Roja, which owes its name to the reddish colour of the sand and the large rock in the middle of the cove, is one of the best beaches on the Costa Brava. Located between Begur and Pals, it can only be reached along the Costa Brava Coastal Path, which runs from Racó beach in Pals to Cala Sa Riera in Begur.

Cala Jugadora in Cap de Creus

On the old road from Cadaqués, the most beautiful village in Catalonia for us, to the lighthouse of Cap de Creus you will find spectacular coves such as La Jugadora or Culip. This area of the Cap de Creus Natural Park is characterised by the capricious shapes of the rocks as a result of the incredible erosion of the sea and the strong north wind, which have given way to some very curious formations that have become part of the landscape of the area.

Es Castell beach in Palamós

Es Castell beach in Palamós, considered the most unspoilt beach on the Costa Brava, thanks to its neighbours’ commitment to preserving its environment, is one of the beaches you cannot miss if you come to this part of the Costa Brava. In addition to enjoying a day in the sun, on the far left are the ruins of an ancient Iberian settlement with magnificent views of the beach, which can also be visited for a complete day out.

Cala Aigua Xelida in Tamariu

About 20 metres wide and just over a kilometre from Tamariu, this cove is one of the best beaches on the Costa Brava. Just for the walk from Tamariu alone, we have to tell you that it is well worth it and is a highly recommended option for getting there.

Santa Cristina

Santa Cristina beach in Lloret de Mar is one of the most familiar and popular beaches on the Costa Brava. With fine sand, located at the foot of the Santa Cristina Chapel, it is surrounded by a magnificent natural environment of rocks and pine trees, making it one of the most beautiful in the area.
