This is our favourite beach in the area. The sand is pure soft sand and the sea shelves very gradually making it ideal for young children. If you use the right side of the rocks (by the pedallos) the sea is much clearer. You can...More

The beach is overcrowded but the spot is really great, I like the beach but as start of camí de ronda and finish for a swim after the hike. The beach is very recommended for early summer June.

Fosca beach is the best you can visit in Costa Brava. It has sand, the water is very clear and clean, suitable for children since is not deep suddenly. There is also a private parking place near to beach with only 3 euros per day.

A decent stretch of sand in this bay and in October it was very quiet. Good rollers for gentle surfing.

We enjoyed the late season sunshine, the lovely surroundings and plenty of room on the beach. Parking is not that easy, but we found a space reasonably close. Chairs and umbrella were 15 Euros, situated near the Hostal la Fosca, which was good for lunch.
