The little known beach of Platja d'en Castell is a 12 minute drive away. A lovely long stretch of sand, backed by a protected nature reserve where only two beach bars are allowed to open from June to September. To the left of the beach a short walk through pine trees takes us up to a fascinating pre-Roman Iberian settlement and to the right, after a short walk between the rocks, we find the beautiful shingly cove of Cala S'Alguer flanked by a jumble of pretty brightly coloured fishermen’s cottages. La Fosca sits just north of the bay of Palamós and its fine, sandy beach shelves gently into the warm clear waters, making it ideal for children.
The coastal walk between Platja d'en Castell and Calella de Palafrugell reveals the Costa Brava at its best with beautiful hidden coves only accessible by boat or on foot.
