Costa Brava Spain Beaches - Discover
The Secret Beach...
Cala El Golfet

The Costa Brava's Calella de Palafrugell has a secret beach…

Golfet Costa Brava

Ok. So it's not totally secret, but until recently it wasn’t signposted, and even now it is, not that many people find it, or make the effort to (why would you when the rest of Calella's beaches are so lovely).

Down some steps, round a rocky headland, through an archway...

Golfet Costa Brava

...and there it is.
