Sa Riera cove
How to get
Sa Riera cove
Two kilometres north of Begur we find Sa Riera, one of the most frequented and largest coves in this town. The name of the cove comes from the stream that runs down and divides it into two parts. In one of these parts, we usually find a large number of boats resting on the sand, while the other side of the stream is the place for bathers, where they have a large space to lay their towels.
The place is easily accessible from the town, by car or bus, although it is advisable to walk along the beautiful coastal path. Being one of the main coves in the area, it offers a large number of services: bar area, restaurants, lifeguard and Red Cross, boat hire, deckchairs, parking area, etc.
It is also an accessible cove for people with reduced mobility thanks to its ramps and walkways to access the sand, adaptable toilets and showers, and the assistance service for disabled bathers.
The "indianos" legacy
Begur is located in the heart of the Costa Brava, next to the Empordà plain. The village is dominated by its castle, which occupies one of the many hills that characterise the municipality's rugged landscape.
This rugged, natural setting is home to some of the most beautiful coves and beaches in this area of the Costa Brava. Visitors can also enjoy the scenery offered by the three coastal paths that link the different beaches and coves of Begur.
The legacy of the "Indians" is one of the main cultural attractions of the town. The inhabitants of the village, who prospered during the 19th century thanks to their business in Cuba, left magnificent architectural traces of their experience in America.
