A really gorgeous cove with golden sands and rock pools. The water is crystal clear and ideal for snorkelling. So many varieties of fish just beneath you as you enjoy a swim - bring goggles or mask. Ideal for families with young and not so young children. Some beach bars here too. La Fosca is at the start of a coastal path that takes you north of Palamos along a delightful adventure past ruined castles, fishermens cottages, breathtaking coves and more idyllic beaches. Be sure to return to La Fosca for a well earned swim and refreshment.

I loved this beach; it is safe for swimming, patrolled by life guards from about 11 am till at least 4 pm. The water is beautifully clear and clean. Even in September the water temperature was perfect at about 23 degrees C. It's not a big beach - I prefer small beaches. The yellow sand appears to be cleaned and graded each night. There were lots of families on the beach with young children. It wasn't crowded when we were there but could be at the night of the summer holidays.

Gently sloping beach with crystal clear waters and therefore a safe place for children and a good place to learn to snorkel - if it's your first time.

We stay in Tamariu and love this part of Spain. This is the beach for younger children, our 9 year old is fine anywhere but the 7 and 5 year old don't like the drops on some beaches. The water is lovely, there is a friendly bar on the beach for snacks, parking is free and the sand castles always work well here. Friendly, family and not crowded.

The bay of La Fosca in Palamos has the perfect beach of soft sand and warm water. Ideal for all from sun-worshippers to children.You don't even need to leave the beach for lunch as there is a beach bar serving snacks and drinks. A small bus goes frequently from Palamos centre but it is a pleasant 15 min walk.
