The best locations on the Costa Brava
A journey along the coast of Girona through its villages, its beaches and hidden coves with crystal clear waters and very well preserved quiet corners that you can use in your next audiovisual project in Catalonia.
The Costa Brava, for many unknown, has great natural value and a spectacular scenic beauty.
The charm of Cadaqués, a small fishing village full of white houses, lies in its narrow streets. Its old town is full of natural, cultural and gastronomic delights. It is worthwhile to walk along the seashore and enjoy its idyllic bay full of boats. The town and the sea merge into one, integrating completely.
Nearby is the Salvador Dalí House Museum, and the Cabo de Creus Natural Park. There are, in addition, numerous coves, many of them virginal and difficult accessible. Between the cliffs you can find areas where it is possible to descend in order to access the beaches, little traveled but precious places, known above all by those who live there. Find them and enjoy them in your audiovisual production or photographic shooting.
Located in the beautiful bay of Roses. Here you can find the beach of Portitxol and its famous anchovies. It is also advisable to visit the ruins of Empúries, the most important Greek archaeological site in Spain.
L’Escala, thanks to its privileged surroundings and great beauty, has been the scene of several advertisements, video clips and films. An ideal location for your next audiovisual project.
Begur is located on the top of a hill. Enjoy its narrow streets and climb up to the castle, it is in ruins but the views from there are spectacular. You can see the coast and enjoy the blue waters of the Mediterranean.
Around Begur are some of the most beautiful coves in the region, for example: Cala de Illa Roja, Cala de Aigua Xelida or Sa Tuna. Perfect places to snorkel, some of them require a short walk along the cliff. The safe walk is worth it, you will find ideal locations for your photographic shooting or audiovisual production.
Illa Roja, which owes its name to the reddish color of the sand and the large rock located in the middle of the cove, is one of the best beaches on the Costa Brava. It is located between Begur and Pals, in the middle of Ronda de la Costa Brava. This nudist beach, about 100 metres long, has crystal clear waters, tranquility and an incredible landscape.
Calella de Palafrugell
Calella de Palafrugell is a well preserved old fishing village. Its natural setting is perfect: there are coves and small beaches that look at a turquoise and crystalline sea between vegetation, rocky promontories and mountains. Each beach looks like a natural pool with calm waters and a gentle swell. The constructions are never invasive or exaggerated, and maintain harmony with the landscape.
Calella is picturesque and full of charm. Its arches on the seashore are famous and its white fishermen’s houses are an incredible background for your audiovisual project on the seafront.
Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodas
This is one of the great medieval wonders in the province of Girona and it is a recommendation to enjoy a beautiful sunset there. On the top of the mountain Verdera, reachable by a path that ascends in dozens of curves, we will find this monastery, one of the best examples of Catalan Romanesque architecture. All spaces are located in the form of terraces that adapt to the steep slope of the mountain. A spectacular location for its architecture and views for your photographic shooting or audiovisual production.
Pals is a medieval jewel of Spain that perhaps is not as well known. This town, full of angles, where it seems that time has not passed looks more than good in each image. Pals is located in the region of Bajo Ampurdán and has almost nine centuries of history.
In its historic center, the cobblestone streets, its facades with stones and plants that climb as if devouring them, its arches, Romanesque towers, a Gothic quarter, ogival windows and its stone balconies stand out. There is also a wall with four towers of the 4th century, a viewpoint towards the rural surroundings of Ampurdán, and even, views towards the Mediterranean and the Medes Islands. In Pals you will find everything you need for your audiovisual project.
Palau-Sator is another hidden jewel of the Empordà. Few people know it but it is a medieval town equal or more beautiful than its neighbours Monells or Peratallada. An area where you will find many locations for your photographic shooting or audiovisual production. After passing under the imposing Tower of Hours, you will enter Palau-Sator and discover that it retains all its medieval charm with its walls, cobbled streets and the castle.
Cala dels Corbs
It lies on the path that goes from Palamós to Calella de Palafrugell. Secluded, away from urbanizations, a small bay sheltered by rocks and forests that ends at a small beach. Everything seems the summary of a small-scale paradise. A beach where you will find hardly any visitor and a lot of tranquility, ideal for your audiovisual project. An authentic coastal paradise in an almost virginal state, without any construction other than a staircase that descends to the sand.
S’Alguer is a beautiful fishing village that looks like a postcard or a fairy tale. You can walk through its streets, sit in the cove or take a dip.
This corner of the Costa Brava was declared “Well of Cultural Interest” in 2004 to prevent anything from changing and to ensure that this haven of peace and tranquility remains authentic forever. S’Alguer is unique and full of charm. You will not miss it in your next audiovisual project.
Cala Pola is located about 6 kilometres from Tossa de Mar, on the road that goes to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, and it is one of the most beautiful coves of the Costa Brava. Its length of about 80 metres is hidden in a small rocky bay. Cala Giverola, Cala Futadera and Cala del Senyor Ramon are other incredible beaches between Sant Feliu de Guíxols and Tossa de Mar, an area full of hidden coves and spectacular panoramic viewpoints to the Mediterranean sea. Again such an incredible area on the Costa Brava, full of locations for your photo shootings or audiovisual productions.
