Es Castell Beach

Platja Del Castell Palamós, 17230 Palamós, Girona, Spain

The wild beach of Castell is located in the area of Castell – Cap Roig natural park. The Aubi river flows here to the sea. The main beach offers 300 metres of fine sand and pine trees. You can learn in a kayaking school or take a walk, even for persons with reduced mobility. Big parking nearby, payment only on summer.

For some people, the beach of Es Castell, in Palamós, is the most wild beach on the Costa Brava, and a recent symbol of the fight against the urbanisation of the coast. More than 70% of local referendum voters opposed the construction of a golf camp in the area.

You can find the ruins of an Iberian settlement on the top of one small hill, that was raised on s. VI BC. You can visit the ruins anytime and is totally free. It is known this Iberian civilization ocupied this region until s. I D.C.

Other nice places to visit are the old Catalan farmhouses, the little-known “painting studio” of Salvador Dali or the family home of the painter Josep Maria Sert, who lived here.
We recommend to take a walk and search for some creeks near the  main beach.
