Costa Brava Spain Beaches
Llafranc - reminiscent of the
Mediterranean fishing village beaches of old

This Costa Brava beach has a very special place in my heart…

Costa Brava

…it was here that we used to come on holiday when I was a child, and whenever I come to this beach my mind is flooded with brilliant memories

…of sand castles, melting ice cream and the tingling sound of the sails on the fishing boats.

Llafranc Costa Brava

Llafranc is a wonderful beach, just long enough to not feel too crowded in the summer, but small enough to have that village feel to it…

  • with a small harbour at one end full of boats (although mostly private boats these days)

Llafranc Costa Brava

  • lots of tavernas lining the promenade and the town square

Llafranc Costa Brava

  • a rocky headland at either end making for great snorkelling (spotted a beautiful red octopus snorkelling here).

There is a car park only a 5 minute walk from the beach and there is also street parking on meters available near the beach.

The beach of Llafranc (which belongs to the municipality of Palafrugell) was awarded a Blue Flag in 2007, 2010 and 2011. Not sure what happened in 2008 and 2009.

Costa Brava Spain Beaches Video

It’s early morning on Llafranc beach, the waves are gently lapping at the shore, the boats are tingling in the harbour and the cicadas are quietly singing in the trees. A couple of people are swimming in the calm sea, a lone person walks across the sand, the early sunlight makes the rocks of the headland glow orange. Oh happy happy days....
