The most representative location in the whole Costa Brava is very near our offices – Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu. For this reason, today we present to you these little nooks in the coast of our beloved town.

The area is packed with beautiful hidden spots, most of which are out of reach for most people as they are only accessible by boat. We are about to tell you about the secret charms of these three towns, but we also suggest that you book a boat or canoe excursion to make the most out of it!


The town of Calella de Palafrugell has several beaches, but the most important ones are Port-Bo, famous for hosting the Havaneres concerts in summer or Platja de les Barques, but there are also many other beaches such as El canadell i els canyissos, Port de la malaespina, Platja d’en calau, La platgeta, El port pelegrí and Sant roc or els canyers.

They can all be accessed on foot from the town. You can enjoy some pictures here:

Calella has another beautiful, even more hidden beach – La Platja del golfet. This 75-metre-long cove is some twenty minutes away from the coastal path to Palamós.


The only one in this town is a 400-metre-long, fine-sand beach. The beach of Llafranc is located just outside the town, right after the promenade, and can be accessed on foot, by car or using public transport.

Tamariu has a beach in a residential area, facing south-East, with golden fine sand. It is 220 metres long and 40 metres wide. It has been awarded the blue flag for the quality of its facilities.

The rest of beaches in Tamariu are small coves, with dreamy surroudings – El cau o cala dels gens (only accessible from the sea), Cala pedrosa, Els liris, Aiguadolça, Aigua Xelida and Cala Marquesa (only accessible from the sea).
