Beaches and coves - Portbou

What to Visit - Portbou

Costa Brava's litoral is formed by an incredible mosaic of beaches and coves suitable for all the interests and tastes, most of them with some quality certificates, like Blue Flag. From little virgin coves and with a difficult access, to extended urban beaches of many kilometres equipped with all the possible services.

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax with your partner your place is in a little cove. There are a lot of hidden coves difficult to find them but after a nice walk through the nature you will find it and enjoy an intime day. Because of its difficult location the level of occupancy is low so anyone will bother you. It is recommended to be prepared for all the day, because this little coves hasn't got so many services for the people due to its reduced space. But without any doubt, you will enjoy a very nice day.

On the other hand, if your objective is enjoy a great family day, playing with your children and then enjoy Costa Brava's gastronomy and its towns centres, the coast offers us a lot kilometres of urban beaches, very long and wide where we find a lot of people. This beaches are well equipped with so many services, from toiletes and showers to quality restaurants.
In addition, if you are a sports lover, this big beaches offer us a lot of space and in some of them we find nets to play volleyball or goals to do an improvised beach soccer match with friends. Most of them also have facilities to practise aquatic sports, from scuba diving clubs to kayak trips or practise paddlesurf and some modern sports ports to leave your boats.
