Palafrugell Tours

506 reviews

Built above 12 kilometers (8 miles) of beautiful beaches paved with soft, golden sand, the medieval town of Palafrugell has long been a port of some importance. Until recently, it was also the region's top producer of cork, for popping off fine Spanish wines.

Today, the windy, winsome spot is a popular resort town, though it remains a real city beyond the quaint tourist quarter. Palafrugell is best known for its impressive coastline, which can be explored in yachts, kayaks, or on foot. But culture lovers and adventurous foodies will also enjoy the city's famed markets, selling fresh seafood (sea urchin is a local specialty), produce, and inexpensive eats made with the same - don't miss the famous night market. La Cuina de les Festes, the city's Spring Festival, is known for its gastronomic delights.

There are several other festivals held here throughout the year, as well museums, botanical gardens, and other attractions to keep you busy between tanning sessions.

Practical Info

Unfortunately, there's no train service to Palafrugell, but you can get direct buses from Barcelona, and from here to the less developed beaches of Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc. 

The actual city of Palafrugell is located about four kilometers from the coast, where the tourist quarter - including most hotels and other amusements - are located. There's regular bus service, and of course taxis, that can take you between the two parts of town.
