With a coastline of 12 km divided between beaches and coves, Palafrugell is one of the most important seaside resorts of the Costa Brava. Unlike other resorts, the seafront has retained a certain authenticity. The seaside resort of Palafrugell is split into three separate villages: Calella de Palafrugell in the south, Llafranc in the centre and Tamariu in the north.
The village of Calella de Palafrugell is the most authentic. It is an old fishing village with its beautiful beach and its white houses, some with arches. It is in a part of the Costa Brava which is very sought after in the summer season and the prices are very high ... Some compare this village to St Tropez. We also like the beach of Port Bo with its traditional boats on the beach which recall the importance of fishing for this village.
The village of Llafranc is lovely but more urbanised (it is reasonable) with a small harbour where you can still see some traditional fishing boats.
The village of Tamariu, in the north, is a former fishing village. Its beach is small but it is a renowned spot for snorkelling with its two underwater chimneys.
The neighbouring resorts of Palafrugell are more oriented towards mass tourism. An exception with Begur which rugged coastline has discouraged developers.
