This is a recently reformed apartment of an old hostel in the beach of Tamariu. The beach is only 50 meters from the apartment. It is completely equipped. The apartment has a terrace for private use and a garden with tables and chairs to be shared with the other apartments of the building. The apartment has one bedroom with a queen sized bed and a sofa-bed suitable for two other people to sleep in. It is a very airy apartment as it has windows and doors in all areas of the apartment. The entrance to the old hostel is thourgh a door located on the first floor that leads you to an old stone stairway of 30 steps that take you right to the beach.
You will find the beds covered with clean sheets. However, towels are not included under 4 nights. In case you need them you can request them before your arrival for a cost of 5€ each set.
If you want to drive to Tamariu, you should know it is easy to find free parking spots on the same street most of the time, but if you happen not to find any, there is a parking place named La Pineda on the main street of Tamariu: La Riera, where you'll always find a spot to leave your car.Tamariu is 126 kilometers away from Barcelona and is one of the 3 beaches of Palafrugell along with Llafranc and Calella. It is very close to Begur and Pals as well, which are 10 and 20 minutres away respectively from Tamariu.
Tamariu is an old fishing village with a central beach and two small beaches at each side. It is one of the three beaches that belong to the town of Palafrugell together with Llafranc and Calella. The walk along the beach is lined with several bars and restaurants, and some small shops. There are three small supermarkets, a couple of bakeries and some places where they prepare take-away meals, sandwiches and pizzas.
On the beach there is a kayak rental place where they also offer guided tours with small canoes for small groups of people. There is also a boat rental agency that offer diverse types and sizes of boats with which you can go surfing nearby and explore the many coves and small beaches that surround Tamariu.
The dirt path named "Camí de Ronda", which covers much of the Costa Brava along the coast cliffs, leads us to beautiful and hidden places to enjoy nature in a greater and quieter way than in the crowded beaches.
There is an important and consolidated diving school on the main beach: a great experience to go for with "Diving Stolly's".
You can also enjoy the area by cycling from town to town through the gorgeous natural dirt paths that connect them. There are also several places to go play activities such as archery (near the village of Esclanyà), horse riding in many horse riding places in the area, playing golf, sightseeing with visits to Iberian and medieval settlements nearby... There are also other possibilities that we will be happy to let you know about if you are interested.
Tamariu is a familiar beach so nights tend to be quiet. Most people simply go have dinner by the sea, on the boulevard's restaurants, or choose to go enjoy a "cremat" drink, made out of rum and cinnamon burned up in flames, and orange slices. Summer evenings in Tamariu (mostly the traditional festivities such as 15th of August) tend to be accompanied by the folk Habaneras music as a background. If you are looking for clubs or discos, Tamariu is not the spot... to find this, you will have to go to Calella or Llafranc, Begur... where you'll find more nightlife spirit.
