Lazy days

Sunbathe in view of Tossa’s medieval castle on the Platja Gran. It’s a sweep of deep-sienna-coloured sand connecting the old town, Vila Vella, to a smart modern promenade. The sand is particularly fine and flat, sloping into the shores of the Med – super for taking a dip.

Picturesque Old Town

Just behind the Platja Gran, you can wander through the old stone gates and into the romantic Vila Vella, the only fortified medieval town left on the Catalan coast. From the outside it’s all battlements and parapets, and inside it’s a tangle of cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings.

Day-tripper

If you’re up for exploring further afield, you’ll be well placed here in Tossa De Mar. The Catalan capital of Barcelona is south, while northwards you can visit the charming fishing village of Cadaqués, the majestic city of Girona, and Salvador Dalí’s birthplace over in Figueres.
