Calella is the largest of Pallafrugells beach resorts. Today's village was built on the hills behind the original fishing village. The beachside walk under the ancient arches now houses many of the busy local bars and seafood restaurants. A number of working fishing boats still pull up on the beach at the end of a day at sea. Whilst bigger and busier than many of the other villages along this coast, Calella de Pallafrugell is still low rise, low key with no mass development. Just along the coast is the next little village of Llafranc, a small crescent shaped bay with a tree-lined promenade. The population of Llafranc is mainly made up of second home owners from Barcelona and tourists seeking a more tranquil environment. Llafranc is an easy walk by a coastal path to Calella.
To the North of Begur only 2.5 km away is the tiny bay of Sa Tuna with deep sides this dramatic sand and shingle beach is a sheltered oasis set in a deep ravine over looked by La Borna. Just along the coast, the next bay is also only a few minutes' drive from Begur to the north, more open than Sa Tuna, Sa Reira with a large sandy beach, with crystal clear water, ideal for swimming and water sports. To one side, there are fishing boats pulled up onto the sand giving it a distinctly traditional fishing village atmosphere. Up behind the beach is a small village, with shops, bars and restaurants. Whilst Sa Reira is one of the busier of the beaches in the area it still retains its charm. It is low rise, low density, with no mass development, still green and gorgeous.
About fifteen minutes to the North of Begur lies Medieval Pals. Inland, overlooking the plains to the south of the Pyrenees this historical village is a jewel in medieval architecture. Well worth a visit if you need to take a break from the beach and need a taste of history. On the Coast you will find the fairly large resort of Platja de Pals with a very long sandy beach that stretches for miles this resort town is popular all year round particularly with anglers and golfers who have three excellent courses within easy reach. Livelier than the smaller villages to the South, Pals beach still retains a Spanish atmosphere.
