“Good swimming at Tossa”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Swimming is always a bonus for us and we loved swimming at the main beach in Tossa. The water was so clear and clean and we were often the only people swimming before breakfast (June), so certainly not crowded at that time of day. Hope we manage to return sometime.

“At it's best out of season”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

June & September are ideal-less crowded and the water is gin clear. Good snorkeling under the Minerva statue and at the far end of the Mar Menuda beach where you can float above the many scuba divers going through their paces.
For good food do try Bar Claudi on the main beach-the other beach bar is drinks and snacks only.
If the weather is good then the beach on Sunday can be heaving with Spanish day trippers plonked right by the water but most of them vanish at 2.30 for their main meal of the day.

“Overated.”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

We have been to alot of spanish beaches but found this one not to good. The sand was like walking on broken glass at times. The sea was very rough and dangerous for young children. Much better beaches in spain than this.
