Situated right at the heart of the Costa Brava, Palamos will dazzle you in ways that you never expected. The marinas and waterfronts that rest upon the shoreline attract hundreds of yachts throughout the year, bobbing idly within the turquoise of the Mediterranean water.
This means it is more than likely that upon reaching Palamos, you will be greeted with the incomparable sight of countless sails and colourful hulls, the precursor to the scattered picturesque houses of the main township. The excellence of the beaches beguiles a friendly community concerned with good food, good times, and a timeless atmosphere of relaxation. For every cruiser, this is a part of the Costa Brava you could spend weeks delving into.
This hidden cove seems to be borne of another time. Not much has changed within recent years, yet this only adds to the timeless allure. Traditional fishermen houses, complete with window frames and doors painted in reds, blues, yellows and greens, will greet you as you head along the coast toward this secluded paradise.
You should expect none of the crowds which normally flood Mediterranean beaches, as the sea-side cottages of this fishing village are in no danger of being overrun with commercial interests. Make no mistake; this is one of the finest beach spots in the Costa Brava, if not the most serene, and is very worthy of your attention.
Platja De Castell
The Costa Brava is often unfairly derided as a haven only for package tours and commercial interests. The Platja De Castell is one of the best reasons to banish this tarnished image from this region of Spain. Untouched by development, the golden sands of this beach are a perfect place to indulge in a day trip away from the stresses of modern life. The pine forests that frame the stretch of the sands also hide a pair of tiny, secluded coves, where you are bound to find marine wildlife nestled in rock pools.
The Palamos Fishing Museum
In the port of Palamos itself, an old shed in the centre of town has become home to a major attraction. Walking under the old archway at its entrance, framed by tall wooden doors, you may be expecting nothing more than a tool shed, but you’ll be amazed by what’s on offer. This museum was set up as dedicated chronicle of the town’s illustrious fishing history and doesn’t disappoint.
Riveting audio-visual presentations bring life to the rich maritime culture of Palamos, and there are even opportunities to sail with specially designated boats during the summer months, letting you learn more about the Costa Brava coast than you ever dreamed.
You can’t get the true experience of visiting Palamos without a stroll around the Mercat Municipal, the town’s main market. Home to street vendors selling all kinds of wares and items; expect to get up close to a cornucopia of fresh seafood and fish.
La Menta is the place to be if you’re looking for gourmet food with a Costa Brava twist. Everything from the fillet mignon to the prawn cocktails is fresh from the local markets, beautifully prepared, and flavoured with delicious herbs and spices.
