Pleasant beach

Beach was clean but deserted when we visited. It wasn't a sandy beach but a very fine shingle. I would imagine it would be great in the summer!

We took the bus from Barcelona to costa brava (tossa de mar) but it wasn't worth it. To reach the beach you have to pass by the narrow markets. very crowdy and very expensive. Honestly, to stay an get benefit from Barcelona is better.

Tossa de Mar's main beach is made of rough sand and pebbles. Very easy to access and has public toilets at either end. In the summer there is a beach bar and boat trips depart from here to the caves and neighbouring towns. There is quite a steep slope as you near the waters edge so beware if on the... More

We visited Tossa De Mar for 12 days in October and it was shut. Well not quite but not far off. It was hard to find shops open and really I can understand because the weather was terrible. It's just like a seaside town in East Yorkshire. English restaurants were none existent except for Holly's Bar and Mike and Julies.... More

This beach is accessible from the town without taking a car. It is the largest of 19 beaches in the area. It's 430 metres long and 60 metres wide, and it's no surprise that it attracts a lot of tourists. There is a reason why; The silhouette of Cape Tossa and the walled fortifications of the old town situated at... More

One of the best memories when I was a child. Unfortunately too much crowded nowadays. I'd rather go to Wall Street on a business day!. Apart from that you can still feel some small details that tell you this was a typical catalan fishermen village too many years ago, now a touristic center in the Costa Brava. Its Vila Vella...

Not the greatest of beaches to be honest. Shingley sand on the beach and lack of Umbrellas to rent. We were disappointed by the Tossa beaches.

This is a busy but good and clean beach with excellent facilities for families. You can take boat trips from here to various destinations but at busy times you will need to book the day before you want to go. There are two beach bars and numerous restaurants just across the beach road.
