This is our favourite beach in the area. The sand is pure soft sand and the sea shelves very gradually making it ideal for young children. If you use the right side of the rocks (by the pedallos) the sea is much clearer. You can...More

This is a great little beach. The sea stays shallow for about 50 meters out and is perfectly clear. There is a shower for when leaving and two nice restaurants situated on the front. There is also a ramp down to the beach if needed...More

We visited this beach lots over the course of our family holiday. We have a 3, 7 and 20 year old and it suited us all well. The sea is shallow and easy for the children to get into. There are lots of beach bars,...More

The beach is overcrowded but the spot is really great, I like the beach but as start of camí de ronda and finish for a swim after the hike. The beach is very recommended for early summer June.

Fosca beach is the best you can visit in Costa Brava. It has sand, the water is very clear and clean, suitable for children since is not deep suddenly. There is also a private parking place near to beach with only 3 euros per day.

A decent stretch of sand in this bay and in October it was very quiet. Good rollers for gentle surfing.

We enjoyed the late season sunshine, the lovely surroundings and plenty of room on the beach. Parking is not that easy, but we found a space reasonably close. Chairs and umbrella were 15 Euros, situated near the Hostal la Fosca, which was good for lunch.

Hiking Costa Brava and public transportation (3 Replies)
Hello. We are a group thinking of going to Costa Brava. We will arrive by plane to Barcelona airport, and will take the bus to one of the villages; i.e Platja dàro ? La Fosca? It looks like there are several beautiful paths along the see, but I wonder; If we would like to stay in one town and take a daytrip in one direction and going back to our house /hotel in the afternoon, and then next morning take a daytrip another direction, do you think this is possible? How is the public...More

Thank you for a quick reply. But if we live in Llafranc and do the hiking to Aiguablava. Is it possible to take a bus back to Llafranc from there? We were told that was a nice walk. We are thinking of travelling in September next year. Also; how about transport from Barcelona Airport to either Llafranc / Palafrugell?
