Palamos and Pal Beach Appts

My family and I are thinking of going to the Pal Beach Appts in Palamos in the next couple of weeks.

Can anyone tell me anything about the area and the apartments? Is there enough to do on a 14 night holiday? Having two young children, we don't want to spend every minute on the beach. Is a car essential? Are there plenty of restaurants to choose from?

Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Jo

I would love to help but my information is way out of date as it is a few years ago since we have been, in fact I mention Pal Beach in my post Forgotten Palamos. If the place hasn't changed, which is a possibility, then you would struggle on a 14 night holiday with 2 young ones, as beautiful as I remember the place to be, I would advise car hire.

We would walk along the coast, slowly, which had two purposes, one was to see a little more of the area and the other was to tire out the children LOL. At the time we were in Palamos we had friends, with children, staying not far away at Playa de Aro so we would go and visit, taking the bus.

So as I say, apologies for this post as its not really of much use, I appreciate that, but on recollection, car hire would be advisable.

I've had a quick look at the apartments which seem to be in the middle of Palamos town and fairly basic. I don't know them personally but do wonder about the price which seems to be very cheap for high season.

If your budget will stretch to it (and if there are still any vacancies of course) you might be better looking for something a little further up the coast in the Calella de Palafrugell or Tamariu area. Or Estartit at a pinch.

Palamos is a interesting small town to go and watch the fishing boats come in or browse the shops and have a meal but I'm not sure I would want to be based there for a fortnight with small children.

Sorry to put a damper on things.

Thanks so much SammysGranny, really appreciate your comments. I understand what you are saying re. the apartments, but as we are booking very late, it's slim pickings on the accommodation front!!

I will certainly have a look at the areas you mentioned and maybe we'll give Palamos a miss!
