Spain Beaches...Tamariu's Secluded Coves
AIGUA XELIDA - literally means "frozen water".
Named because of the fresh water springs under the sea that cause a sudden drop in temperature.
The beach is a small stoney cove, about 1 km north of Tamariu. Aigua Xelida is accessible on foot, from Carrier de Cala Marquesa or you can walk from Tamariu along the Cami de Ronda.
LA PEDROSA - is a small pebble beach, 1.85 km south of Tamariu.
La Pedrosa is accessible on foot from Tamariu along the Cami de Ronda or by kayak/boat.
EL CAU - is a small stoney cove, about 1 km north of Llafranc.
El Cau is accessible on foot, from Sant Sebastia lighthouse and the residential streets to the north of it, or you can walk from Tamariu or Llafranc along the Cami de Ronda.
Costa Brava Spain Beaches Videos
I stood on this beautiful beach one busy August day and shot this short video to remind myself of holidays when it was deepest winter. I didn't even bother to add a sound track, much preferring to keep the bustle of the summer beach....
Also take a look at this great video of this beautiful Costa Brava beach....
(you might want to mute the music though!)
If you watch the video from the start you can look at stunning Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc.
Costa Brava Beaches - Tamariu - General Information
There are a few car parking spaces right behind the beach, on Carrer Riera (you have to get here early to get a space). There are more car parking spaces further along Carrer Riera (heading away from the beach) and also a pay & display car park.
More parking can be found if you take a right turn off Carrer Riera on to Carrer Pescadors and then turn left on to Carrer Muga (there is a dirt floor car park at the end of this small road). You can also park on Carrer Aiguablava (this is quite a steep hill though).
