Tamariu, a little paradise
Tamariu is a charming little fishing village that, together with Calella and Llafranc, make up the three coastal towns of the municipality of Palafrugell, in the Baix Empordà region of Girona.
The town of Tamariu is located between Llafranc and the Aiguablava cove in Begur, 5 minutes by car from Palafrugell, 15 minutes from Begur and Palamós and about 90 minutes from Barcelona (110 km) or the border with France (95 km).
It is a place of extraordinary natural beauty, with small coves and majestic cliffs, which combine the blue of the sea with the green of the pine trees in the lush forests that surround the area.
Although the first mention of Tamariu is found in a document from the year 1039, the town had its origins in the mid-19th century when the cove became a fishing village that, over time, became a tourist center highly appreciated both for the extraordinary beauty of its beaches and coves and for being a very quiet and familiar place.
The fact that in the past access to Tamariu was more difficult than to other beaches in the area allowed this cove, being a little more isolated, to have preserved all its charm and glamour, being a much appreciated place for those who like to have a second residence or enjoy a holiday in a peaceful place near the sea.
Tamariu has several charming beaches and coves. To highlight the coves of Aigua Xelida, Cala Marquesa, Cala Pedrosa, Platja del Lliris and Platja d'Aiguadolça.
The little town has several restaurants specializing in rice dishes and seafood, open almost all year round. In summer it has a wide range of water sports (diving, kayaking, sailing) as well as mooring buoys for pleasure boats.
