The essence of a fishing village
Tamariu is a small municipality that belongs to Palafrugell where past and present go hand in hand. Its urban centre is made up of a group of narrow streets that gave shape to the old fishing village. Nowadays, Tamariu has a very low population density.
Rocks, vegetation and coarse sandy beaches form the natural landscape of the village. Lovers of active tourism can follow its beautiful and rugged coastline by kayak or boat, or opt for a stroll along its coastal path and discover its magnificent, half-hidden natural spaces, such as Cala Pedrosa.
