Castell-Platja d'Aro is a municipality in the middle of the Costa Brava in Catalonia, Spain. It is formed from two parts: Castell d'Aro is an ancient village built around a medieval castle and a fortified church, 3 km inland on the road from Platja d'Aro to Santa Cristina d'Aro; and Platja d'Aro is a coastal town on the road from Palamós to Sant Feliu de Guíxols which stretches along a large 2 km beach. Originally a small fishing village, Platja d'Aro is now a major coastal resort, popular predominantly with Catalans and villa-owning Northern Europeans.

We travelled out of season so spent no time actually on the beach but it is most attractive and can imagine lovely in the hot sun. Plenty of restaurants overlooking beach and great walks around both headlands.

Aquadiver is the best water park on the Costa Brava near Girona and in Europe unique attractions: amazing rides, wave pools, kamikaces and the fantastic tracks. A set of attractions aimed at both young and adult audience.
We had a lovely day at this water park. I went with my sons who are 7,10 and 12 who are quite adventurous and went on everything. We had free transport from Cala GoGo which was easy and is a nice touch. We went on second to last day so we couldn't put a second visit in (I don't think the parks big enough to warrant a second visit) and also had no transport to get to the other park. So I do think it's priced too highly and is in the same price bracket as huge attractions which it isn't.
Saying that we had a great day, the slides are fun, it was clean and you can find shade under the trees. The staff were nice and appeared to be attentive.
You have to pay extra for a locker which is a bit off after paying 132 euros to get in and sun beds are extra. We took a locker but I don't think you need sun beds.
People would be rating this more highly if it was priced around 25 euros however they don't need to do this as it's plenty busy enough. It's a nice day out and the queues weren't too bad!

Mas Molla is a traditional farmer house where we continue making natural wine that you are invited to taste. Usually we make visits three times a week, check our web calendar and book your place or propose use a date! We hope see you soon!
After some difficulty in finding this winery, as well as forgetting about the traditional Spanish siesta, I finally had an opportunity to visit this 700 year old winery. The winery has been in the same family since the 1300's and offers a variety of grapes to sample. The wines are pure, unaffected by chemical additives and so offer a very different experience. It does take an initial adjustment to your taste buds but I found the reds particularly enjoyable and for 1.5 euro for the whites and 2.2 euro a bottle for the reds are great value. The wines to one side the visit is all about the history of this vineyard. The 3 sisters who help their parents run Mas Molla are lovely hosts and they are proud to give you a tour of their cellar. This is a "must see", full of history, stories and the wine making process itself. Even if you don't drink wine I think you couldn't help but enjoy the experience.

Parque con estanque incluido lleno de aves. Además cada seis meses cambian la exposición de esculturas al aire libre y siempre vale la pena visitar-lo, en qualquier momento del año. Digo que és un error ya que la zona estava destinada a ser urbanizada y, por lo tanto, cubierta de cemento, alquitran y viviendas, pero la burbuja estalló, también en la Costa Brava, y ahora tenemos un bonito parque.

The perfect blend of natural beauty, adventure, history, wonderful accommodation, delicious local cuisine, and friendly people. The Cami de Ronda is a 230 km trail stretching along the picturesque Costa Brava coastline from Lloret de Mar (north of Barcelona) to the French boarder. There are many access points and a wide variety of terrain, including flat seawalks in resort towns, steep rocky trails through pine Forests, scenic staircases hugging the coastline, and sandy beach walking. Depending on the section you choose and the time available, it could be an afternoon stroll or multi-day hiking trip. The trail is very well maintained and well-marked. (Keep an eye out for the red and white parallel lines which indicate you are going in the correct direction, if the red and white lines are crossed you have taken a wrong turn.) We chose to hike the most scenic and popular section, called the ‘Baix Emporda’, equipped with a 30 liter backpack, sturdy walking shoes, a flexible schedule and no Reservations. We visited in Sept 2016, shoulder season, and easily found great accommodation at reasonable prices. We spent 7 days on the trail, only travelling by foot. Most of the hiking is quite easy for someone with reasonable fitness. The most difficult part was from Platja Fonda to Begur as it is all uphill.
Getting there? We took the SARFA / Moventis bus from Barcelona to Sant Feliu de Guixols, and spend the first night at the charming Can Segura Hotel… with time to explore the town, marina, and the monastery. We set out early the next day, and picked up the trail at the far north part of town, behind the marina….keep an eye open for the red and white lines painted on the roadway and poles. (Note: Sant Feliu de Guixols is also kilometer zero for the Via Verde, rails-to-trails path which heads inland and connects Catalonia to the Camino de Santiago)
Along the Cami de Ronda, you’ll discover historical sites, picturesque fishing villages, resort towns, secluded coves, pine Forests, naturist Beaches, and friendly people - the common Catalan greeting is ‘hola bon dia’. We enjoyed daily swims in the ocean, and marveled at the trail construction. It originated as a route to patrol the coast from pirates, and to connect fishing villages… later it became an escape route to France during the Spanish Civil War. We ended our hiking trip in Begur and took a bus to Palafrugell, then on to Girona. Along the Cami de Ronda we discovered so many beautiful, interesting spots … it would be a long list to name them all… enjoy the trail – it’s a wonderful adventure.

Ruines du château de Sant Esteve et baraques de pêcheurs de S'Alguer et Cala Estreta
The Beaches in this area are lovely. I visited Cala Castell more and found this to be very nice and family friendly.

Great house to visit. My kids came to see the toys, I just came with them and turned out to be the one enjoying it the most. The house itself is a great wow. They preserved the interiors, the lamps, the ceilings and floors, the inner yard, the balconies, the Terrace. And the toys are also very impressive. A must see place in Sant Feliu for you and your kids.

This is yet another Cala which at this time of year is largely devoid of the masses if there are any normally.
Most of these Calas are not that easy to get to. You have to walk around to get to them or at least I did.
Beautiful and quiet
