Palafrugell area

Hi, we are a family of 5, (3 kids aged 14,13,11) staying in Palafrugell with a car for 1 week in end August.

-We are quite a sporty, active family, kayaking,snorkelling sounds good. Any advice on where to do this? Is there anything we shouldn't miss?

-Any recommendations on good restaurants where to eat that's good food but not too pricey and casual for the kids would be appreciated. Should we pack bug repellant in August?

-Any particular dishes we should try as first timers to Spain?

Any replies/advice gratefully appreciated.

Most beaches have kayaks to rent (in Calella de Palafrugell you have to go to Platja Canadell - the last beach before the headland to Llafranc) but for an adventure have a look at a day hire from Platja de Castell and explore the coast up towards Cap Roig.

Snorkelling is best in places with rockier seabeds. The bays in Calella de Palafrugell are excellent as is Aiguablava. In Tamariu there's a pebble beach to the left of the main beach which is has lots of fish. And another alternative is Sa Tuna. Some of the diving companies (eg those in Llafranc) take snorkellers out to some of the more remote bays and coves.

If you're active you might want to look at Parc d'Aventura near Pals - a ropes and tree-climbing adventure park. Personally i'd also recommend some coastal walking and visiting some inland villages (eg Peratallada), but then we do a lot of walking.

Mosquitos tend to come out at night, so bug repellent in the evening helps.
