Tossa de Mar - The Jewel of the Costa Brava
The town of Tossa de Mar, with just under 6000 permanent inhabitants, is one of the jewels of the Costa Brava. Small enough to be manageable, it still has plenty of things to do, and boasts a lively selection of restaurants and bars.
Benefiting from three different beaches, the town is an ideal place to come for a beach vacation, but also a fantastic base to explore the small coves and larger beaches of the Costa Brava, as well as the cities of Girona and Barcelona, and other attractions.

Three Beautiful Beaches
Almost everyone coming to Tossa de Mar will spend a little time on the beach, and with 3 gorgeous sandy beaches and crystal waters to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice. All of them awarded with blue flag.
Right in front of the hotel, and separated from the main beach by a rocky outcrop, the Mar Menuda Beach is smaller, more private and less accessible. Feeling almost exclusive, the beach is just 180 metres long but has all facilities including beach bars, deckchairs and diving services, as well as disabled access.
The Main Beach (Platja Gran) sits right in the heart of the town, and is bigger and more active. Measuring 380 metres long, it is much larger than the Mar Menuda beach, but still relatively small. About 200 m. from the hotel and its where the ships depart for the tours to the coves, caves and coastal cities .
The third beach, El Codolar, sits behind the castle walls to the south of the town, and measures around 30m long, looking out over a narrow bay. Formerly used as a port for small fishing boats of Tossa de Mar.
