I walked to this beach from Palamos along the coastal path. It is a lovely walk but not for the fainthearted. The beach itself has car parking nearby, 2 bars for lunch (possibly evening too) and water sport facilities.

Platja de Castell beach was easy to reach (by car), 5 Eur all-day parking on a big lot (in the sun). The beach itself was archetypal: half moon, perfect, clean sand, two stands for snacks and drinks, gentle slope into the water. Beach was clearly...More
