At the time we arrived there (sunset), it was almost empty, with the calm and relaxing look, common at those hours. During the day, with all the people I saw walking in the streets at night, transferred to the sea side, it must become another massively occupied good beach, in the warm coast of Spain.more

This restaurant is located in the building I stayed, this year in P. Aro.
I spent a lot of time in the balcony of the appartement enjoying the sea view, and it was almost impossible not to notice the wonderful paellas passing by.
Favorite Dish: Paella, paella and paella
Very good music, not a typical spanish disco: please check out its URL www.900houseclub.com

I only did this once, and it goes like this: from the airport to BCN's centre it's like above, but u go to the Estacio de Sants. There, u catch the train to Girona, and then the bus with SARFA to Platja d'aro. I think it's more expensive and it takes longer to get there.
There are flights directly to Girona (+/- 30 Km from P. d'Aro) operated by Ryan Air www.ryanair.com

If you have the money, there were some really good buys on...more

The town of Castell – Platja d'Aro i S'Agaró, as part of its wide range of attractions, offers the possibility of practicing a multitude of sporting activities in public municipal installations (Sports and Congress Pavilion, Auditorium, Municipal Football Field...) or private installations (bowling, golf, tennis, swimming pool...).
During the year the Department of Sport and Youth organises a considerable range of activities to encourage physical and sport activity on an ongoing basis (Municipal Football School, Multi-sports Program, Beach Fun...) or special events (20 and 10 Km walks, Swimming, Beach Rugby 7x7...).
Apart from the municipal initiative a large number of sports clubs open their doors to active participation in numerous proposals of various types, making sporting activities an active choice for leisure.
