It may look like sand in the photographs but it is in fact very small stones and it can be very uncomfortable to walk across without shoes. Saying that though the beach is very clean and the water is clear, but does get deep quickly. The Castillo is at one end of the beach so the views are just amazing.... More

A lovely beach with a view of the castle. It can be very busy especially in August when the Spanish take there holidays. The water is clear, swim shoes recommended as stone rather than sand and the water is deep very quickly however at the castle end it is suitable for small children.

Costa Brava beaches are all practically the same. This one is alike Lloret, but smaller. The city is smaller, the beach is smaller => not so many people as at the Lloret beach. But the water and sand are very good

We landed here at the end of the tourist season. As a result the beach was totally empty. But that aside, it happens to be a beautiful beach. If what our tour operator said is right, this place was the site for those scuba diving scenes in " Zindagi na milegi dobara " with Hritik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. That... More

Within Tossa there are really three distinct beach 'areas.' I never actually caught their individual names and from a quick Google search it's not clear to me if they are distinct. What you really need to know is there are three: (1) a north section, which is separated by rocks from the middle section (middle being the largest and most... More

Tidy beach. Good facilities, sun beds, boat trips, restaurants and bars. I did expect a sandy beach looking at the photos but found it to be sand coloured pebbles, having said that, they easily moulded under your towel and it was easy to get comfortable to catch a bit of sun!

The beach is made of small stones rather than sand but that helps the water to be clear. Big and small fish come near to the beach so take your snorkelling gear.

Not proper sand, it's kind of grainy!! The beach drops off very quickly as you enter the water so gets deep very quick. This is because of the boats coming in with visitors several times an hour. Beach is very clean though with showers available

I did not find this beach attractive due to the crowds. However, we took the Fondo Cristal tour to the caves and they left us in Cala Giverola, which was definitely much worth visiting, with cristal clear waters and a beautiful scenario. It only tooks us 40 min to arrive to Cala Giverola as the boat was stopping around caves.... More
