We visited Tamariu beach while our stay at Costa Brava and absolutely loved it. We went there on a week day in September so I do imagine it gets much more busier in weekends, especially in summer. Do bear that in mind if you decide...More

This is a great little beach, very picturesque. Lots of small restaurants line the shore and streets, not even that expensive. Lots of families were enjoying the beach and younger people. Come early to ensure you can park within comfortable walking distance. We didn't have...More

It gets very crowded on Summer holidays and even more on weekends. The sand is white and clean..many families with children, many tourists from all over Spain and France.

Beautiful pebbly beach, if rather sore walking into the sea. Stunning scenery around the cove. Water is crystal clear and calm enough to bob around on an inflatable quite safely. It is busy, but it's a relatively small area and so doesn't feel crowded, but...More

This little town beach is quaint and has 3 different areas, the big area in front of the town, a narrow strip between 2 rocks to the right, and after that a small cove. The beach sand is mostly little rocks, for those who prefer...More

Yes. You can park your car in the village, it's less than 5 minutes by walk far from the beach. Watch out : it's overcrowded in medium and high season. :) Enjoy your stay there as much as we enjoyed it !
