Beautiful pebbly beach, if rather sore walking into the sea. Stunning scenery around the cove. Water is crystal clear and calm enough to bob around on an inflatable quite safely. It is busy, but it's a relatively small area and so doesn't feel crowded, but...More

This little town beach is quaint and has 3 different areas, the big area in front of the town, a narrow strip between 2 rocks to the right, and after that a small cove. The beach sand is mostly little rocks, for those who prefer...More

A beautifully structured cove beautiful scenery and gorgeous water. Many places to eat, bring water shoes. Get there early bring your own chairs, there are none to rent. Parking is tougher the later you arrive.

We where there in April so very empty beach. I have seen photos in the heat of the summer and it seems to get too crowded. If you find yourself there take a walk to the left.... there is a fantastic rock formation.... 4/5

I spent two weeks in Tamariu across the Easter holidays in April earlier this year, with my parents. Me and my Dad would spend every morning walking across the beach front and exploring across the rocks, early doors about 7:30am, and enjoy the views and...More

Yes. You can park your car in the village, it's less than 5 minutes by walk far from the beach. Watch out : it's overcrowded in medium and high season. :) Enjoy your stay there as much as we enjoyed it !
