Playa d'Aro

South east of Girona, and roughly midway between Lloret de Mar and Begur is the fabulous beach-side resort of Miami Playa (Platja d'Aro in Catalan). The international airfield at Girona is approximately 40 minutes drive.

Platja d'Aro is a 

modern, cosmopolitan town, neighbouring the elegant town of S'Agaró, in south east Girona.

This fabulous beachside town, also boasts a wonderful and historical town centre, which has preserved well its medieval charm. 


The area offers a brilliant holiday experience, with so much to offier: a beautiful natural setting, culture, leisure, sport and best of all, a delightful seafront location, with an impressive, endless beach, and idyllic little bays.

Leisure & recreation
The three neighbouring towns of Platja d'Aro, Castell d'Aro and S'Agaró offer an unrivalled holiday experience and perfect location: on the coast, yet situated close to the main transport routes, excellent selection of businesses and facilities, excellent shopping, variety of nightlife and gastronomy, and leisure and sports opportunities, to name just a few.

The resort offers all year round facilities, making it one of the main destinations of the Costa Brava, and one of the most popular of the whole of the Mediterranean.

The main town has many boutiques and makes a great shopping location. Nearby there are opportunities for hacking, hiking and running.

Beaches
The main beach is a long stretch of beautiful sand and there are many further sandy coves and rocky areas to explore. Equipment and tuition for a variety of water-sports can be hired; plus there are diving schools.

Events


Platja d'Aro remains full of life all year round, with a complete programme of events and festivals, such as Carnival, the Beer Festival and the Medieval Market in Castell d'Aro.

Businesses and other organisations also hold conferences and conventions here, shaping the projects and innovations of the future.



Excursions
Barcelona, Girona and the Pyrenees are all close enough for day trips, as is the incredible Dali museum.

A gentle run by car inland or along the coast will turn up many surprises as you enjoy medieval architecture and quaint villages, and discover old fishing ports and vibrant towns.

Cuisine
The gastronomy of Catalonia is rich and varied. Principally it is the typical Mediterranean diet of fish and seafood with fresh vegetables, olives and olive oil rice and pasta.

We recommend that visitors try some traditional Catalan dishes whilst on holiday, especially delicious are 

Escudella I Carn D'olla, vegetable broth with pork, veal and chicken. Pa Amb Tomàquet, 

simply rustic bread, can be toasted, rubbed with tomato pulp and dressed with oil and salt; these delcious breakfast can also be served with ham, sausage or tortilla.

Coca is a very thin dough baked with onions, peppers and other vegetables served with and meats, or fish (especially sardines).

Climate
Mild winter merges into blossoming spring which in turn gives way to a seemingly endless sunny summer the eventually yields to an autumn of mellow fruitfulness.

Playa d'Aro review

Playa d'Aro is a nice place for beach holidays. The beach is clean and not too crowded (but we were there in June), lots of places to eat.It is pretty touristy though, and does not give you much impression of the local atmoshpere - but for that you can take a ride to Palamos or elswhere - there are lots pretty little towns and villages not far from this place.


Costa Brava reviews

Most beautiful coast ever - I want to come there again and again

Located just outside of the village of Playa D'Aro in a quiet neighbourhood. 10 minute walk to the beach!

Playa d'Aro review

Very surprised at the area as I had never heard of Platja D'Aro before reserving the villa. It's a very lively summer beach town - lots of Spanish tourists and not so much a foreigner destination.


Costa Brava reviews

Costa Brava is beautiful. Loved it.

Playa d'Aro review

One negative about Platja D'Aro was the Beach. A very gritty "sand" with a steep incline into the sea, not suitable for young children.
