COSTA BRAVA: CALELLA DE PALAFRUGELL AND LLAFRANC BEACHES


Like Begur, Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell are two lovely seaside villages of La Costa Brava. Their beaches, their typical nice white houses, the Ronda Way between them and the wonderful views of these two villages from San Sebastian Lighthouse are enough reasons to spent one day, or even a weekend, enjoying their beauty.

There are houses built really near the beach in Calella de Palafrugell, so the promenade goes under them when necessary

I enjoyed a lot the time we spent in this peaceful viewpoint admiring impressive views of Llafranc and La Costa Brava like this one



After enjoying this views of Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell, we went to Calonge, where we walked along the streets of the old city and visited the castle.


Besides, If you have enough time, I strongly recommend visiting the nearby village of Tamariu, another beautiful place in La Costa Brava as you can see in the next picture. Another lovely seaside villages of la Costa Brava is Tossa de Mar, with beautiful beaches and an old city really nice.

Beautiful Calella de Palafrugell. I was there last summer and I loved it. It has a special atmosphere, and you can take long walk with incredible views. I also stayed at a familiar hotel in Calella de Palafrugell , surrounded by pine trees, overlooking the sea, a paradise!
