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

Schönes, trubeliges Städtchen, in unserer Reisezeit in den Sommerferien war sehr viel los. Dennoch fand man immer einen schönen Platz am Strand oder in den Restaurants am Strand. Tolle Geschäfte.


Costa Brava reviews

Die Costa brava ist wunderschön und bietet so viel: Schöne Strände, kleine Buchten, zerklüftete Felsmassive, malerische Fischerdörfchen. Toll ist Cap de Creus, die Gegend um Begur und der Küstenstreifen zwischen Sant Feliu de Guixols und Tossa de Mar, von wo aus man schöne Bootstouren entlang der Küste buchen kann, die wirklich lohnenswert sind.

Playa d'Aro review

Ville animée (nombreux restaurants)


Costa Brava reviews

La plage est grande avec du sable assez grossier, elle plonge abruptement dans la mer (pas facile pour les jeunes enfants) Le front de mer est agréable. La côte est belle et decoupee.

Playa d'Aro review

Platja d'Aro is niet een heel bijzondere plek, wat ons betreft. Wij kwamen met name voor de andere kant van de streek: meer richting binnenland. Girona is een prachtige stad, en in de (ruime) omgeving zijn voldoende leuke en lekkere restaurants. De échte kustplaatsen (S'Agaro, Platja d'Aro, Calonge en Palamos) zijn leuk om 's avonds een ijsje te halen.
