Aigua Blava and Begur Area
The beach of Aigua Blava is typical of the area - a pretty sandy cove with pine trees growing in the craggy rocks that reach down into the turquoise sea. There are two cafes/restaurants which serve good local food - calamari, grilled sardines, paella and other classic Spanish dishes.
There are pedalos for hire from the beach and a scuba diving club. The other nearby beach of Platja Fonda has a windy path that leads down to the more secluded beach and during summer months there is small snack bar here. The local town of Begur provides all of the necessary amenities - supermarket, fishmongers, grocers, bakery, butchers, pharmacy, etc. The pretty streets lead to the central square by the old church where the cafes and tapas bars provide a wonderful area to sit outside for a drink or light meal. Begur has a good selection of restaurants to cater for all tastes.
There is a weekly market with all of the local produce and during the summer months there are various shows and entertainments in the square. A walk up one of the winding streets past the rose-coloured stone buildings will lead to the castle ruins from which there are spectacular 360 degree views either inland towards the Pyrenees or along the coast and out to sea.
