    Great to visit in the mid June while less tourists
    We liked this beach a lot for its sand and nice waves. We we not in the hottest season - June. The water was still not hot, but pleasant to spend time. Less tourists. Easy to find parking place. Easy to eat.

    A beautiful beach with great snorkelling for kids
    This is a gorgeous beach - much calmer than its busier neighbour Lloret de Mar. Our children (10 and 12) loved jumping in the waves and spent ages snorkelling around the rocks at the edges - there were a surprising number of little fish to swim amongst. It was quite windy when we were there, so the waves were quite big - our kids loved this, but perhaps it wouldn't be great for toddlers. Can't wait to go back.

    Great beach day outside of Barcelona
    We wanted one beach day while we were in Barcelona so rented a car and went to Playa de Fenal. We chose a car rental so we could go to Girona for dinner afterwards. We chose this beach because: (1) just over an hour from Barcelona; (2) big broad beach but not as party-central as Lloret a few minutes north; (3) a kayak rental place and rocky coastline to explore by water; (4) a path through the rocky coastline to the north to explore by foot; (5) ice cream on the beach and a couple of restaurants. Seems to be mostly Spaniards, some other northern Europeans and Russians. I think we were the only Americans. Plenty of street parking. Buy a day ticket at the machine. Though we were there at the end of May and it was free until June. May was a bit windy and chilly in the morning but it could just as easily been hot.

Beautiful and quiet beach, with plenty of beach shacks serving ice cream and smoothies surrounding it. The ‘sand’ is actually very small gravel which gives the appearance of white sand, and can be uncomfortable at times but we found it easy enough to walk on - perhaps not the best for children though as you certainly couldn’t build a sandcastle!! The sea also has quite a severe dip at the start, so only for competent swimmers, but was very calm and few waves. Sunbeds and parasols were only 7€ each (much cheaper than I expected!), and boats and water sports were available.

Totally loved fenals beach. Area mainly full of Spanish families, busy in august but still plenty of room. You can hire loungers and an umbrella for €10 each. We left our bags by these when we went swimming and they were perfectly safe. You can buy drinks, food and ice creams you the promenade and there were toilet blocks available. We also hired a pedal boat with a slide on the front which the children loved. We loved the area so much we’re going back this year! (The beach is made up of tiny stones - not quite a stoney beach, not sand- but you can walk in it without shoes!)

This is a gorgeous rugged beach with forest walks and paths which lead you around to other bays.
It has quirky bars and activities such as kayaks and diving.
Its busy but walk along far right and it's far more relaxed.
Views from the forest are stunning.

In mid-October the water was a bit cool, around +20 and on most days the waves were pretty high, despite it, the water was very clean. The beach offers basic facilities, nice cafes, you can also take a boat trip along Costa Brava. The boats go several times a day from May till November.

I did not spend a lot of time here, bit took the pictures for review. Nice coarse sand beach. Temperatures were reasonable for October to stay out and get the sun.

Mainly French people at this time of the year, some brits.

Loads of shops and eating places nearby
