To get to the best beaches on the Costa Brava – small sandy coves, crystal clear waters, and dramatic cliffs – you’ll need wheels of your own although a bus service can get you to some of the villages from where you can explore the area by foot.

Of these, Calella de Palafrugell (not to be confused with Calella de Mar) and neighbouring Llafranc are among the most picturesque. Both retain the feel of small fishing villages and offer sandy beaches, decent restaurants and photogenic old fishing boats. Walk south along the coastal path and you’ll find more secluded spots but be aware that most of those beaches and coves have rocks and pebbles rather than sand.
