The Wildest Beach on the Costa Brava...
Platja de Castell


There is a beach on the Costa Brava that is completely unspoilt by development...

just one house hides in the trees and the old boat house on the beach serves as a xiringuito (beach bar shack) in the summer...

a wide sandy beach backed by pine trees and scrubby heath...


Platja de Castell Costa Brava

...its name is Platja de Castell.

Coming under the municipality of Palamos, Platja de Castell, is a very unusual beach.

There are hundreds of unspoilt coves hidden all along the Costa Brava, but nowhere else, is there a beach the size of Platja de Castell, that has escaped development.

Platja de Castell Costa Brava

Why has it escaped?

Conservation groups lobbied for years to prevent developers from moving in. They won the fight. Hooray!

After the rain, a river will often divide Platja de Castell in two...giving it an even wilder feel.

There is even an Iberian settlement to explore on the promontory at the north end of the beach.
