The surface is in the main "gritty" which has one benefit-it does not blow in your face/drink/stick on your suncreamed body! It can also be very hot to walk on in summer and if... read more

Great views but the Beach was not for me, too much like grit. Although plently of sun bathers and I did have a wander along testing the sea.

Avoid in the summer months. It´s super crowded and not that grande. They also have catamaran cruises in and out all day so not as peaceful and clean as other nearby beaches.

Nice beach spot with a sandy beach, not rocks all the time. Renting sunbeds and parasol for a day is 6€/pce. Good beach bar were they speak multiple languages!

Nice beach with a lovely view to the castle and clear blue sea. The sand is harsh on your feet and the sea shelves quite sharply. Various boats land on the beach for trips up and down the coast, which I would recommend as it is such a beautiful area.

This is the main place to relax in the resort. I found the beach comfortable, however my girlfriend found the small stones to be painful. The sunbeds and umbrellas are expensive (6 euros each item) but you can bring your own if you have them.

This isn't as big as it looks, it's a small beach which fills up quite quick, no fine sand so you exfoliate your feet which I guess isn't a bad thing. in the end of the day, it is a beach. Close to restaurant and the beautiful castle, the water is clean and nice.

Its a lovely stretch of gold grainy sand. We sat after supper having coffee in one of the beach bars watching the sun go down whilst families were playing football, volleyball and generally having fun. Warning there is sudden deep shelf in the sea though.

Really nice beach, very popular with the Spanish so recommend that you get there early if you want a good pitch. The pebbles can be a little uncomfortable underfoot, so recommend a good pair of water shoes and trying to get into and out of the sea can be a little tricky due to the steep descent. I saw a...

The surface is in the main "gritty" which has one benefit-it does not blow in your face/drink/stick on your suncreamed body! It can also be very hot to walk on in summer and if you have a long walk to the sea then buy some plastic/rubber beach shoes-only €5ish at the local shops. The beach is cleaned every morning and...

As mentioned by other reviewers, people used to sandy beaches should be prepared to wear beach shoes in Tossa. They are even more important for going into the water than walking on the beach. For an American used to spacious Atlantic beaches in North and South Carolina, I find the Tossa beaches to be crowded but manageable as the "beach... More
