Sarfa.es run buses from Barcelona Airport to the Costa Brava including Palamos (closest town for La Fosca). However, if you want to explore a little, you'll probably be better off hiring a car.

I am from Palamos and also have an apartment to rent in La Fosca. But to answer your question. In summer there is a bus with Sarfa from Barcelona Airport to Palamos. Other times of the year you have to make your way in Barcelona to Estacio de Nord bus station next Arc de Triomf on the Metro and get the bus from there. If in fact you arrive in Girona airport (sometimes dubbed Barcelona-Girona) you can take a bus to Girona centre then a Sarfa bus to Palamos. Sarfa is easy to find in internet. Also if you do a search you can get online prices for a door-to-door transfer. Try typing in reciocars for example. Great service and it will cost between €120 and €150.

Once you are in La Fosca it is easy walking to the Town of Palamos or there is a little bus that runs up and down.

By the way, La Fosca beach is world class: crystal clear shallow water and soft sandy beach.

But it's just as cheap to hire a car and it would be a pity to visit such a lovely area and not be able to explore it easily. It's an easy drive from Barcelona.

Fosca is a lovely beach and very safe for children but you also ought to try and see nearby places like Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu. And the lovely undeveloped beach at Playa d'en Castell next door to Fosca.
