Tossa Del Mar or Cadaques?

I plan on spending 3 days relaxing on the Costa Brava and sightseeing with my family (children 12 and 14). Any advice on choosing between Tossa del Mar and Cadaques?

Tossa is a bigger and a better base for sightseeing than Cadaques is and it has nicer beaches.Cadaques has tiny town beaches by the road and otherwise it's mainly access climbing over rocks to get into the sea.

Or you could choose somewhere a bit higher up the coast (also nice beaches) and go to Cadaques for the day as it is magical, it's just not really a beach town.

Difficult to chose between two or my three favorite places in the Costa Brava. I think Lynda has given you a perfect picture of the two places

When you mention places further north on the coast, would you mean the area around Palagrugell (Callela de Palafrugell for example)?

Yes!

Same area: Llafranc/Tamariu/Pals (Platja de Pals), Begur on a hilltop.
