Not too touristique, friendly people and prices and great beaches
I think some of the other beaches in The Costa Brava are better
In a nutshell
Quiet, restful and relaxing place, beautiful bay.
Maybe it sounds a bit weird, but as an experience traveler I know that you every now and then need this kind of information in advance: electricity in Spain is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second. If you travel to Spain with a device that does not accept 230 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter.
There are three main types of voltage converter. Resistor-network converters will usually be advertised as supporting something like 50-1600 Watts. They are light-weight and support high-wattage electrical appliances like hair dryers and irons. However, they can only be used for short periods of time and are not ideal for digital devices. Some companies sell combination converters that include both a resistor network and a transformer in the same package. This kind of converter will usually come with a switch that switches between the two modes. If you absolutely need both types of converter, then this is the type to buy.
Outlets in Spain generally accept 1 type of plug: Two round pins (see the picture). If your appliances plug has a different shape, you may need a plug adapter. Depending on how much you plan to travel in the future, it may be worthwhile to get a combination voltage converter and plug adapter.

Favorite thing: Ask around for the fisherman Quim (his boat is the LýEmporda), and then tell him that Jim said hello. If you are lucky, very lucky, he might cook for you one day. Thi sis unlikely unless you're a close personal friend, or you agree to go fishing with him at dawn . . . but it's your choice.
Fondest memory: Eating at Quim's
