The beach of Sant Pol is easily reached from Girona airport (about half an hour drive). It is in a beautiful, small bay with quite an 'exclusive' feel about it. In fact, the locals call it 'Little Hollywood". This has something to do with the area where film stars from around the world would stay in the (1950s & perhaps even before this) at the very luxurious Galvina Hotel (still an exclusive 5* hotel) with prices to match. We stayed in the S'Agaro Hotel & Spa where you can enjoy the benefits of the area at much more reasonable prices. S'Agaro does have an air of California, with the decked and roped pathways. In February when we last visited many properties are not occupied and just a few restaurants are open; it's extremely quiet unlike the Summer months when the beach can be quite busy as it's the choice resort of Catalans visiting from Girona or Barcelona. In the early evenings, people get dressed to promenade & stroll by the beach to visit the cluster of good restaurants & bars on the sea front. Many are staying in the well appointed hotels and pretty & unobtrusive, sympathetically designed urbanisations in the area. You can see some appealing traditional beach huts that sit just on the beach.There is an innovative playground for the kids, water sports facilities and a great little beach bar (really cold beer!) which is only open in the mid/high season. It's a gentle, relaxing place to be and in this way differs from many other more hectic resorts. There is a lovely, easy walk around the cliffs to another beach behind an area of very expensive and established houses where you can take in great views of the sea, great for photo opportunities, gaze wistfully at some of the enormous posh houses and meander around cliff tops safely to another delightful small bay, less built up, with a back drop of pine forests called Sa Conca.

You hear a lot of French accents as it's not so far from the border and not so many English & other nationality voices as you find in more popular resorts but this is the where the Catalans choose to spend their beach days so this is mostly the language spoken and therefore a great place to be among the locals.

Perfect for couples in need of some R&R and families with young kids although teenagers and groups of young adults would probably prefer to go visit Plaja D'Aro or Sant Feliu nearby where there would be more to do. If you don't fancy doing much at all in tranquil surroundings then S'Agaro would be a great choice.

A nice quiet beach and decked promenade. Loungers and parasols available by the day. Only one shop and some nice restaurants - this is a quiet, upmarket area.

My wife and I were staying at the hotel Gavina so we used this beach a lot.
It is very clean and all sand.
There are lots of restaurants looking over the beach and the sea was clean and warm.

We have had an apartment in Sant Feliu, and Sant Pol is our favourite, decent restaurants and varied prices, beautiful clean beach and very atmospheric with the beautiful yachts that moor up during the day. More parking can be found behind beach huts as you drive out,

Spent five nights here in September with my husband. Lovely calm water that was surprising still warm for September. Enjoyed five days of sun beds and SUP boarding, with plenty of places to eat and drink. Stayed at the S’Agaro Hotel last year, returning to sat at San Pol Beach hotel this year. Probably best for couples to visit out of season as I am told beach is very crowded during summer months with locals. September was perfect during the week, but noticeably busier at weekends. Be aware that limited English is spoken in restaurants, so be prepared to use google translator! Adds to the cultural experience in my opinion :-)

This immaculately-maintained beach is backed by a sedate, decked promenade which is lined by a selection of agreeable eateries, and some modernist villas of the belle epoque. The lovely ( and exclusive) Hostal de La Having sits serenely at its northern end, where you can also join a lovely section of the Camp De Ronda coastal path. Just the thing for a low-key, select resort.

Beach is very scenic and close into town, Beautiful water. Small ways as in a sheltered bay. Many sail boats come in during the day.

I could describe this place more than paradise on earth! It is breathtaking! You should go hiking along the cliffs and don't forget your camera!

we were staying at the hotel s'argo and i came down here for a swim, just down the hotel's driveway and across the road and down the path. lovely clean water. only a few people on the beach. met up with my husband and we had a lovely walk along the promenade. loved the coloured bathing sheds. our first night in Spain and the start of our 6 day self guided walking trek along the cami de ronda. an ideal spot to start our adventure!
