“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. ”

“La fosca Surrounding the coast to the east in the direction of Calella de Palafrugell we can enjoy the coastal path that leaves the Gran de Palamós beach. We climb to the Pedró and cross the Marina Marina and Margarita cove we reach the beach of La Fosca, facing southeast and characterized by its black rock that divides the beach in two halves. If we continue along the roundabout path we find the Sant Esteve de Mar Castle, a history of the origins of Palamós from the 12th-13th centuries. Further on, from the Gori pine forest, we can see the picturesque houses of Cala S'Alguer, a Cultural Asset of National Interest, old fishermen's huts from the 15th century. Then we arrive at Platja de Castell, a natural space that has been isolated and has conserved, by popular will, the most crude cleanliness of the landscape. The Iberian settlement of Castell allows us to get closer to the archeological remains of the Iberian site (6th century BC until the 2nd century AD). And among the cliffs, the Foradada, pure Costa Brava that delves into its magic, crossing wonderful coves; Senià cove, Canyers cove with its fountain of the sea, Corbs cove and Estreta cove, until the end of Planes.”

“2 playa importante de Palamos, Esta playa es de arena muy fina y es ideal para los niños ya que se hace pie hasta 100 metros dentro del mar. También es una playa que al estar orientada diferente a las otras playas sucede que cuando en Palamos sopla viento de mar y hacen olas, en la fosca sucede lo contrario el mar esta liso y sin olas ni viento. ”
