I like beaches, but it is not always so easy to find idyllic ones. There are often too many high-rises, too little scenery, too much of this and too little of that. Tossa's beach, however, is small and perfectly proportioned. It is a lovely little community, nestled around an arc of beach that runs between the picturesque castle and a... More

We stopped for some beach time here on our drive up from Barcelona to Cadaques. It's a gorgeous beach with beautifully clear and calm turquoise waters. Beachgoers were mostly families and though it was fairly crowded, the atmosphere was jovial and relaxed. Scenery is lovely, with the castle in the (near) distance. We parked at a nearby underground parking lot... More

I love the sunshine and I love beaches. However this one disappointed me because it was so crowded. Maybe I just picked the wrong time of year, and am sure the beach would have been more appealing. I don't like overcrowded beaches. I like to be able to wander along the seashore unhindered and at a leisurely pace. But this... More

we had a great peaceful time since there's only few people on the beach in winter time. the beach and water is cold, but our son still had great time playing at the shore.

With its wonderful aspect and the Castillo above, the clean, well kept beach is nice even in winter. The sea defences were being maintained by tractor pushing up big dunes of sand against sudden high tides. Long to see it in summer!

It is gorgeous here .its easy to find parking and then walk to the beach . By now we are ready for a swim .the waves are rough and there is a big downward slope to the water and it's deep . Rally refreshing. I wouldn't recommend it for young children...as it is quite rough.

This is the main beach of Tossa de Mar but i prefer Es Codolar because is a small one. From the beach you have the most beautiful views...sea and Castillo de Tossa de Mar. Also is a very beautiful place to walking in the morning and night.

I just love this beach been to Tossa de Mar 3 times and this is the best beach to visit although it's busy and the sand/rock are hot on your feet the water is refreshing , as long as you don't swallow any as its very salty but where else is there such a wonderful view of a castle.

A very quiet and beautiful scenic place with Mediterranean on one side and the beautiful residences and hotels on the other side. Beautiful walking place in the morning and a very quiet serene beach
