La Fosca Beach, Palamos

4.6
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Soft sand backed by modern construction and the Castle of Esteve make La Fosca Beach a popular spot on the Costa Brava. Volleyball players often set up nets in the evening hours, while the days on the beach are reserved for relaxation. The bay next to the beach is roped off for safe swimming. To the left of the bay is a canoe rental station, and to the right a paddle boat rental. Small bars called "chiringuitos" are located on the sand, serving snacks and a small selection of drinks to keep you refreshed. Save money by bringing plenty of water and snacks for your day on the beach.

  • Nice beach, sometimes too crowded on summer but you can get nice walks and swins there
  • What a beautiful beach of Costa Brava. I love the place. ❤❤❤
  • Beautifull beach❤
  • Nice sandy beach. Was quite busy when we visited but still plenty of room on the beach and to swim in the sea. Reasonably shallow shelf so good for paddling. Plus plenty of fish for snorkelling. Parking nearby was easy and cheap (€3 for the day). There are a few places to buy food and drink fron on the beach - D&C would recommend.
  • Ok.
