Palamós is an authentic fishing village that offers a wide range of possibilities for its visitors, both for those who seek to rest as the most active.
The beaches and coves, such as the Playa Grande in the bay of Palamós, the Playa de la Fosca or the incredible area of Cala s’Alguer (historical complex declared a cultural asset of national interest), are idyllic spaces that allow you to enjoy tranquility.
If we talk about water activities in Palamós, without a doubt, we have to highlight diving. But there are many others that make the area an endless source of fun by the sea:
– Walks along the round roads, proposed as Unesco’s world heritage.
– Kayak excursions
– Excursions with classic sail (as in the mythical boats Pepa Banderas or Rafael)
– Departures with sailboats, catamarans or motor yachts
– Excursions in Btt through the woods
Palamós is a fantastic starting point to reach wild and special areas, such as the sunken ship Boreas.
Palamós is not only sea, but also has a small and very well preserved historical center, with streets and alleys that have managed to combine the modernity of its shops and marine traditions.
The market and the fruit shops of the main street give you the possibility to always enjoy fresh and local food.
The visitor cannot miss the visit to the fish market (one of the most important in Catalonia), where the red prawn of Palamós and a great variety of fresh fish from the area stand out. Most of the restaurants in the area offer them in their menu.
Bucólica is the stamp of the fishing and nautical port, located in the great bay of Palamós. Between them they create a harmonious, picturesque and full of life set.
In the careful and varied cuisine offered by its restaurants we can find restaurants specialized in succulent and fun tapas, innovative cuisine, traditional dishes of authentic homemade fishermen’s cuisine and international cuisine.
