After visiting Tossa de Mar on a boat trip from Santa Susanna,after a day out, I really wanted to come back and spend more time there, and I am glad that I did!!! We stayed at a quaint family run bed and breakfast in the old town and had great views from the top floor room, although very basic, was... More

Although quite small this beach is very pretty with a typical Spanish ambience to it. The shoreline is dotted with restaurants that cater for all tastes and budgets. A walk on the promenade provides you with a couple of sightseeing spots and photo opportunities. The town adjacent to this beach is also worth visiting. It's got narrow winding roads filled... More

This was a wonderful beach, not sandy but a more gritty beach. The sea was wonderful, but I would not recommend this beach for children; the sea drops away quite quickly, and the sea quite choppy most of the time

I understand that the artist, Marc Chagall summered here for 4 decades. You'll understand why. One corner of the beach seemed to attract topless sun bathers. I noticed, but I hope my wife didn't notice that I noticed!

Swimming is always a bonus for us and we loved swimming at the main beach in Tossa. The water was so clear and clean and we were often the only people swimming before breakfast (June), so certainly not crowded at that time of day. Hope we manage to return sometime.

June & September are ideal-less crowded and the water is gin clear. Good snorkeling under the Minerva statue and at the far end of the Mar Menuda beach where you can float above the many scuba divers going through their paces. For good food do try Bar Claudi on the main beach-the other beach bar is drinks and snacks only.... More

We have been to alot of spanish beaches but found this one not to good. The sand was like walking on broken glass at times. The sea was very rough and dangerous for young children. Much better beaches in spain than this.
