Palafrugell Tours

510 Reviews
Palafrugell
Halfway between Barcelona and the French border lies the town of Palafrugell, a jumping-off point to some of the prettiest and most pristine areas of the Costa Brava. Enticing spots include the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, Cap Roig promontory, and the beachy villages of Tamariu, Aiguablava, Fornells, and Llafranc.

The Basics

Many visitors explore Palafrugell and its surroundings on a day trip to the Costa Brava from Barcelona. Small-group tours along the coast typically include guided visits to the medieval city of Girona, as well as Pals and Calella de Palafrugell. For greater flexibility, opt for a private tour of the Costa Brava, where you can design your own itinerary and choose how much time to spend where, allowing time to walk along the coastal cliffs, explore the villages, or even duck into a local winery for a tasting. 

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Palafrugell is an excellent option for beach lovers and those looking to get off the beaten path.
  • Palafrugell is situated 76 miles (123 kilometers) northeast of Barcelona.
  • The public beaches in the area are rather basic, so bring what you need with you.
  • Day trips that include Palafrugell typically last upwards of 10 hours.

How to Get There
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 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) from the coast, where the tourist quarter is located. Buses and taxis can take you between the two parts of town. 

When to Get There
The months of May, June, September, and October tend to offer the best weather for enjoying the beaches of Palafrugell without the crowds of high season (July and August). Come Tuesday to Sunday to shop at the city’s central market.

The Camino de Ronda
Many of the small towns along the Costa Brava near Palafrugell are situated along the Camino de Ronda coastal trail. This footpath was originally developed for local law enforcement to curtail smuggling, but today it’s a popular way to get from one beach or resort town to the next on foot.
