Holidays in
Palafrugell

Art, beaches and forest adventures

Why have just one sandy beach when you can have three? Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu make up the enticing trio of bays that can be enjoyed on Palafrugell holidays. Despite drawing in the summer-holiday crowds, all have managed to retain that secluded, ‘hidden gem’ feel. Think sun-bleached, low-rise buildings nestled between rocky outcrops, where the sea air mingles with the scent of pine forests.

Back in town, time can be well-spent meandering around the many fascinating museums (this area is rich in Dali heritage), while families looking for an action-packed day out will find it swinging through the treetops at the nearby adventure park. This region also has much of historical interest, with a number of ancient lookout points that make great photo opportunities. On holidays to Palafrugell, you have some of the best of Costa Brava at your fingertips.

Scale a castle

Looking for sweeping vistas? Seek out a watchtower to stand in a spot that sea-scanning locals would have occupied hundreds of years ago. The climb will be totally worth it.
