The beaches on the costa Brava comprise some of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. Within walking distance of Sant Feliu de Guixols you can find four, all completely different. Explore the map at the bottom of the page to see the location of these beaches.
Sant Feliu Beach:
A sandy beach with two cheriquitos (beach bars) and refreshment bars all close by. Sunbeds/parasols are available during the high season and there are many water-based activities too. Pedalos and sailing dinghys can be rented and there is a free to use diving pontoon too.
On the western edge of the natural harbour there are wonderful opportunities for snorkelling with beautiful cliffs and coves to investigate.
Throughout the summer the beaches are cleaned in the early hours of each morning.
Sant Pol Beach – S’Agaro.
A popular beach for families with small children because the sea stays shallow for quite some distance. The seafront comprises a selection of restaurants, bars and some shop. The restaurants and bars offer everything from fine dining to snack food and cater for most budgets. The shops sell everything you would expect in a situation like this. It is a five minute walk from the village of S’Agaro and there is plenty of parking (paid and free) nearby. Using the stunning coastal path, which is not for the feint of heart, it is just a 20 minute walk from Sant Feliu although there is a regular bus service and at the height of the season a tourist road train operating between St Feliu and St. Pol.
Sa Conca Beach, Platja D’Aro.
Stretching this a bit to list as a St Feliu beach but it is walkable along the stunning undulating coastal path and would take approx 2 hours from St Feliu but the views are just amazing.
To reward you upon arrival there are two Cherinquitos (beach Bars) serving food and refreshment. The beach is a bit of a local secret, the water is beautifully clear but very deep very quickly.
There is no parking nearby and should you travel by car, it is on street parking (free) with a walk or paid parking with a walk too, but shorter!
Walking from St. Feliu towards St. Elm anyone wishing to visit will find a steep stepped pathway leading down to this secluded beach. It is the only one of the four listed on this page with no sand and is a mixture of rock and pebbles. It is beautiful and rarely are many people to be found on it but let’s just say those who do go prefer to wear less clothing than would be expected on a busy beach!
