If you visit Girona, an extension trip would be visiting a town/beach in Costa Brava. We visited Calella de Palarugell and this place is like a dream White washed houses set on one side with a clean beach for swimming and chilling. Very picturisque.

Definitely let your kids stay up late and let them enjoy the beach at night. Eat ice cream and roll around playing with your kids on the fantastic beaches. It’s magical in the evening!!

Loved Callella so much, we went back to spend time there a few times. Gorgeous little seaside town which was not too busy for the high tourist season. Some lovely clothing shops, an amazing ice cream shop and lovely restaurants too.

Calella de Palafrugell has several beaches connected with an easy foot trail (Camí de Ronda). They are very representative of the Costa Brava, with clear waters and cliffs with pine trees. Unfortunately the beauty is broken by a large number of recreational boats that are...More

Good beach, lots of room even on a busy day, would recommend buying a beach parasol from the shops, but make sure it fits in your case as there is a charge at the airport. The beach has plenty of facilities, toilets bars and shops...More

I could easily have spent a week here and not been bored. It's an ideal location. Walk to the neighboring village for lunch or dinner. Easy parking. Not too crowded. Beautiful beaches. We loved it.

Most villages are steep, have steps to the beach or a broad walk. Llafranc would be the pic but its hotels alongbthe front. There is very little traffic and it would be easy with kids. It is a bit more expensive and quieter... More
