Feature: Treasured Beaches Around Begur

With pocket-sized coves framed by pine trees and subtropical flowers, and lapped by crystalline water, the sublime coastline around Begur is home to some of Spain's most gorgeous beaches. Thanks to their small size and difficult access, many remain largely undeveloped, making them some of the Costa Brava's quieter spots to soak up some rays.

From mid-June to mid-September, Sarfa (www.sarfa.com) runs bus platges (€1) services to Sa Tuna, Sa Riera, Fornells and Aiguablava from Begur's Plaça de Forgas. Or you could follow one of several scenic walks to your beach of choice.
