Begur Travel Guide
Is anyone else already dreaming of their next travel destination? We thought of sharing our favourite things about Begur, the beautiful town and area on Spain’s Costa Brava where we spent our family holiday this summer.
Begur itself is a town with a profound sense of history. With a 1000-year old medieval castle up on the hill, the streets are scattered with incredible architecture by Spain’s returned colonists. It feels like a stretch of Cuba on the Mediterranean coast.
La Bisbal d'Emporda
Cork makers, ceramists and basket weavers. This area is filled with traditional craft makers. Visit La Bisbal d’Emporda for a fine selection, the terracotta museum and incredible stores of vintage furniture.
The beaches! All breathtaking, different from one another, yet turquoise, not too big and (my favourite part!) connected by a unique hiking trail.
I discovered vermut - a white wine fortified with herbs and botanicals - when visiting my sister in Barcelona ages ago, and I had my last one in this vermuteria on the perfect beach of Llafranc.
Pals is medieval beauty at its finest. A well-preserved, dreamy village on a hill overlooking the rice fields of the area.
Our daily stop at Ultramar, a typical ‘chiringuito’ on the beach of Pals, serving the finest Catalan food in a modern way.
