Tourist attractions at Begur:
What to do in Begur? First of all, enjoy the beach, at Sa Tuna beach, sublime with its beautiful coves and restaurants by the sea. There are a very nice coastal path and beautiful houses all around. A ride to Begur side, by going to the Castell de Begur: but beware it climbs! You will appreciate the view of the whole coast and the typical houses of Begur. Another beach just as nice: the playa de Aiguablava. A real dream beach: transparent water, sand, and rocks. Do not be surprised to see people; the beach is very popular in summer!
The coastline of the Costa Brava is characterized by its irregularity. In Begur, the small coves and beaches are often lined with pines and steep cliffs and spread a carpet of fine white sand. There are a total of eight beaches and coves along the coast of Begur which entitle to a variety of landscapes. To the north is the beautiful, spacious Raco Beach (Platja del Raco), which also offers a beautiful view of the Medes Islands. In this coastal area, you will also find the warm beach of Sa Riera which offers a large number of services and sports activities. Between the two previous beaches is the nudist beach Illa Roja. The central and most easterly part of Begur includes the charming little cove of Aiguafreda (which has a marina) than that of Sa Tuna. The latter is certainly one of the most beautiful of Begur. Its main assets lie in its crystal clear waters and its enchanting environment. A coastal path runs along this beach, which suggests pleasant walks.
Further south of Begur is Platja Fonda, a beach that has kept its wild side. It enjoys a privileged setting near Cape Begur and is covered with gray sand. The coves of Fornells and Aiguabrava are those that are the most southerly. These are small quiet bays and sheltered from the crowd.
By getting away from the coastline, you can discover Esclanyà, part of Begur which is full of historical monuments built at different times including the Romanesque period. Its castle and Sant Esteve Church are among the things to visit. You will also enjoy the excitement of the markets of Begur and the 17th-century houses of the Catalan city. To dominate the whole city of Begur, its coastline and the massif of Montgri, nothing beats the castle of Begur. The monument dates back to the 11th century and although there are only ruins, the viewpoint it offers on Begur amply justifies a visit. This castle takes place not far from the beach Sa Tuna but moving away from a little of the littoral. The environment of Begur is to be discovered through a hike plunging you in the heart of the pines of Pals, the torrent Sa Siera, and the Cami de Ronda. If you particularly like hiking, you can join the GR92 trail. It is a very long hiking trail (more than 550 km) that starts from the north of Catalonia to reach its south.
If you will certainly not be able to make the whole of this path, you will be able to make a small portion to admire the beauty of the plains, mountains and Catalan beaches. From Begur it is possible to reach the Medes Islands (although Estartit is a better location to reach them). These untouched islands enjoy an inviting marine ecosystem that you can discover either by diving or through a tour of the islands aboard a glass bottom boat. Close to Begur, do not miss a visit to Palafrugell and its countless places of interest. You will be able to stop at the castle of Cap Roig, visit the botanical garden of the same name and the sumptuous beaches of Plafrugell.
