Take a stroll around the castle ruins around dusk! One of the most romantic things you could do! Too bad I wasn't with anyone I wanted to be romantic with! ohhhh but I shall return to do that! What a beautiful place.
There were many different boat trips taking you up and down the coast to other resorts. We went on one that took us to a slightly better beach it took us 30 mins going as it stopped at some caves on the way but it only took 15 mins coming back this cost about 5 euros return. There were also fishing trips available.

The medieval wall surrounding Tossa del Mar has 3 towers. This is the view of the sea from the tower nearest the beach.
The beach of Tossa is very nice althouth it's quite narrow and crowded (in full season). It is very close to the town, cafes, bars and shops, as well as to the castle.
I don't know much about the castle's history but that doesn't bother me at all. It just looks interesting - both from the outside and from the inside.
On your way up to the castle you'll see at least two solid cannons aimed at the sea. They look very impressive and heavy. And they certainly make a good object for a picture.
Walking along near the medieval wall near the beach, there is a path which offers this great view of the wild coast looking south along the Costa Brava.
