Playa de Pals
Stretched along the crescent of a four kilometer bay, Playa de Pals isn't so much a resort as a collection of elegant hotels and private villas. We are pleased to offer a number of villas in Playa de Pals for holiday rental.
From wine tasting to skiing to Salvador Dali...
A two mile long, white sandy beach surrounded by pine trees makes this a beautiful back drop for any holiday maker. Its central location in the Costa Brava makes it ideal for exploring many of the surrounding attractions Begur, Torroella and Palafrugell, and the medieval town of Peratallada, are all close by.
Playa de Pals is surrounded by rocky headlands, rice fields and a small lake. Further south past intimate coves are the small up market resorts of Tamariu and Llafranc. Playa L’Illa Roja is more secluded. Pals beach is in a conservation area so no noisy water sports, strictly snorkeling, pedaloes and scuba diving. This is a compact resort which means that all our Playa de Pals villas are very close to the beach and other amenities.
