  • Not sure you can find a beach with better views. Tossa de Mar is a lovely medieval village with great views of a castle built in 1331.  more »
  • Nice views and good food and drink places around. The water was a bit dirty at times but we found that the right side was the cleanest. The sand is thicker so bring something for your feet else it might hurt a bit.
  • Really a beautiful place, very quiet at this moment due to the COVID 19 situation.
  • Beautiful beach within a beautiful town. Parking is a bit of a nightmare if you don’t plan it, but still well worth a visit.
  • Very busy. Due to Covid restrictions it was necessary to queue to access the beach. Very picturesque beach, spoiled with the boats and jet skis
  • Nice view with the castle in the background. Only annoying point is the ferry that boards which takes a big chunk of the beach and water itself
