The coastline around Tossa De Mar is bulging with beautiful beaches and sheltered coves, with the two beaches in Tossa De Mar both awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness.
The wonderful crescent-shaped bay is backed by bars, cafes and restaurants serving delicious local cuisine and international dishes to suit everyone`s taste.
