Llafranc Beach in Palafrugell is southeast oriented and well sheltered by two rocky headlands surrounding the bay. The former fishing village has become a major tourist centre without losing its ancestral charm. The beach is well equipped and has ramps for people with reduced mobility. It is flanked by a tree-lined promenade, Passeig of Cypsele, where there are lots of bars, restaurants, ice cream parlours and other businesses. The atmosphere of the beach is very family orientated and up market. The number of pools and the cost of surrounding rentals give that feeling. The mountain of Sant Sebastia, to the left of the bay, protects the beach from the Tramontana wind. On the left, a pretty postcard harbour. The sailing club which has its headquarters organizes dinghy sailing courses and in the summer many yachts are often anchored opposite the beach.
Behind the port, a coastal path leads to Tamariu through the Sant Sebastià lighthouse and the Pedrosa cove. To the right of the beach, another path, shorter and less steep leads to Calella.
Facing the beach are some submerged islets called Els Ullastres. Their abundant wildlife and extraordinary colonies of sea fans make it a popular place for diving centres. A paradise for nature lovers!
Long cove or small beach sandwiched between two rocky outcrops, Llafranc combines the advantages of both.
Cleaned in the morning, it is impeccable. However, it is not classed as a blue flag beach.
Shaded promenade with lots of shops ...
