History Museum
“En Palamós el trabajo del hombre en la mar se convierte en espectáculo ante los ojos de los visitantes: a media tarde con la llegada de las barcas se ofrece un cuadro de movimiento y color inigualable. En Palamós el mundo pesquero no termina en el muelle sino que tiene continuidad en el Museo de la Pesca, único en el Mediterráneo en su especialidad. Este centro presenta el pasado, el presente y el futuro de la pesca, a través de la exposición permanente y de un conjunto de actividades vinculadas con el hecho marítimo y pesquero de la Costa Brava: visitas guiadas a la subasta de pescado, navegación con embarcaciones de pesca profesional, rutas marítimas y talleres. También propone en l’”Espai del Peix” el aula gastronómica del Museo, actividades de descubrimiento y valoración del pescado desembarcado en el puerto de Palamós y de cocina y degustación de platos marineros. ”

Point of Interest
“Personally, the best beach in the Costa Brava. It is a virgin beach without urbanization. Easy to park, parking 400m far. The parking cost 5€ for the whole day or 3€ afternoon. The beach is great but the surrounding are amazing! on the north (2 minutes walking distance) there are an old iberian ruins up on a small cliff. on the south there is a pedestrian path that reached the best spot of the Costa Brava (3 minutes walking distance). It is an old fisherman's "village" called s'Alguer. Actually, it is a group of 15 houses painted in white with colorfull doors and windows. An incredible place where you can really feel the old times of the Costa Brava. Best pictures of your stay may be there.”

Natural Feature
“Pese a ser una playa nudista hay de todo, lo bonito es hacer el camino de ronda y pasear por el paisaje!! es muy importante tener a mano un buen calzado y agua porque en verano hace calor... Despite being a nudist beach there is everything, the beautiful thing is to walk the path and walk through the landscape! It is very important to have good shoes and water on hand because in summer it's hot ... ”

“In Sant Antoni's promenade you can find this fish restaurant. Sure one of the best quality fish restaurants in Sant Antoni de Calonge. Make a reservation if you don't want to go there and leave disappointed because they don't have a table for you. Always make a reservation in summer. And, of course, make the reservation at their nice terrace, not inside! The fish and shellfish they offer you is best quality and always fresh. But you have to be aware that the prices are high. So this is a place to go just with your partner or adult friends. Don't go there with your little ones. 50-60€ per person can be very easy to reach here but it is worth it if you want to have a nice (and perhaps romantic) dinner in front of the beach in a nice terrace. ”

Park
“La joya de la corona. Pasada la Pineda d’en Gori, un estupendo paraje de pinos y al que se permite la llegada en coche, encontramos libre de grandes edificaciones, un conjunto de casas de pescadores emplazadas sobre las rocas que se remontan al siglo XVI. Están caladas de blanco pero añaden una estampa colorida gracias a la diversidad de colores; azules, rojos, verdes… de su puertas y ventanas. Aportando también color a esta estampa están las barcas de los pescadores varadas en la cala que en su conjunto hacen de esta vista una foto obligada. ”

“Just amazing! Restaurant right on the beach, great quality of fish dishes. Good spot to take kids, as while you have your lunch kids can play on the beach...right in front of you. Open only from May until end September. During the summer you need to go early to get a table outside on the sand”

“Definitely the cheapest and best restaurant in the area for families with kids. The quality is best and the price is incredible! It is a large restaurant where always people of the area go to have lunch. They have a very affordable menu. I don't remember the price but I think it is around 15€ per person! Open every day except Tuesdays from 13:00 to 16:00 and from 20:00 to 23:30. Reservation 972602044 Don't miss it if you want to taste real "Catalan village cuisine" at a fabulous price. And you can go there with kids at any time...”

“Palamos...originally a fisherman's villa. Her you can find lots of good restaurants. This one is a fine cuisine restaurant so the prices are usually high... but the quality is very good. Again this is a place preferably to go just with adults and not with little kids. ”
