Playas de Calella

Reviewed By beachbuddy10 - Bridport, United Kingdom

Calella and Port Bo are small with soft sand and amenities close by. Showers and WC's are on or near the beach. With the right conditions, the waters are crystal-clear and great for snorkelers.
Similarly, Llafranc has everything but in greater quantities. More restaurants, shops and a wide, safe beach with rocks to attract fish at either end. Sun-loungers and parasols are available there too.

Jardi Botanic de Cap Roig

Reviewed By Andrew S - Southampton, United Kingdom

Well maintained Gardens with plants identified for reference. Exceptional views of the sea. Gardens beautifully laid out using the dramatic landscape and castle as a backdrop. Really needs a cafe where visitors could refresh themselves given that the tour of the garden requires a lot of descending and ascending of paths.

Faro de Sant Sebastia

Reviewed By familyb5 - Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom

Cycled up and was looking forward to a cool drink/ice cream. However on a Saturday in October around midday the Japanese restaurant was closed and the hotel had a wedding on so would not serve other customers. Fantastic views along the coast both ways - make sure you do the short Panorama path just under the hotel - free toilets here. Free of charge.

We did a shore dive with them and it was just fantastic. We could see a lot of corals and spot fishes. The dive center has an excellent location too. The Dive Masters are so friendly and make you feel extremely comfortable at every stage.

My daughter and I celebrated her 21 yo birthday. The guys from the tour service did the best possible boat tour for us. Must go if you are in the area. 1.5H €50 per person. Well spent, I reassure you.

Maritimes Met

Reviewed By 554Madeleine554 - Folkestone, United Kingdom

We stayed at Camping Le Siesta with Canvas holidays whose reps go beyond their call of duty. The park is set in great beauty and has everything you could want on a camp site. The staff are also very good and tolerate and understanding. There are few english, however the other nationalities proved it to be a good site. The surrounding areas are beautiful, however I noticed on both the site and in the towns that service was prioritised to those of other nationalalities and therefore service in cafes, shops, bars and restuarants was slow towards the british. Some people proved to be ok, most didn't have any issue with the brits, although there seemed to be few of us, however, some proved to dislike the brits, for example one beach we visited we had just arrived when a spanish couple began laying down the law about how my child should behave and what he could and couldn't do which put my nose out of joint some what!!!. It is however a beautiful place, with towns and Beaches to match, however it can have it's down sides, in that if you aren't prepared you can get very sunburnt like my child who's skin underneath now that he is peeling still looks like another burnt layer, so people should be prepared for really hot temperatures, the other negative is the bites you can get. I am covered in big bites but those on my right elbow have caused the elbow to swell leaving me in pain and still itchy and covered from head to toe in bites, so be prepared to take bite cream or spray. The other thing I would say is in august it may be very hot, but the sea is very cold and swimming pools are much colder than you would expect and part of my holiday was also lost not just due to bites but also as a result of going down with broncities whilst on holiday, I am really suffering with these bites and broncities and now need to seek medical attention back in this country. The tourist buses are great, trying to find your way back to Geroma airport is a challenge though, as is finding the right place to leave your hire car on return, however for someone who doesn't enjoy flying the flights were enjoyable but then we had day time flights!. I wouldn't recommend sleeping at an english airport either in the terminus or your vehicle on a cold summer's night such as that recorded on 23rd august this year before an early flight it is far to cold and like me could cost you your health and holiday fun. Costa Brava is great though, the arcitecture is fantastic and I love the views in Calella De Palafrugell Spain and the way that buildings are built into the trees and hills and Mountains, the terrain is beautiful and rugid, I wouldn't suggest driving hire cars though on spanish roads though unless you feel totally at home on the roads of Spain. sign posting isn't their strength, there is loads to do and it is easy for the young and older generation to make friends. however I didn't make friends, where as my child and my parents did!!! It was a good holiday generally and I would highly reccommend the area and especially Camping Le Seista.
