Located in the heart of Empordà, the town of Begur and its beaches are one of the most wonderful spots on the Costa Brava. The town boundary takes in the impressive hills of the Begur Massif and an extensive coastline washed by the Mediterranean sea. Begur’s old town, home to numerous monuments left as legacies of significant moments in the town's history, together with its eight coves and small beaches, and the Romanesque centre of the village of Esclanyà, make it and its peerless natural surroundings an unbeatable place to visit.
The striking silhouette of the medieval castle overlooking the town, its numerous colonial-style houses, the layout and profile of the streets and alleys of the old town and the old fishermen's huts still conserved in the coves testify to a long and intense history in which pirates, sailors, coral gatherers, fishermen, wealthy emigrants returning from overseas and entire generations of Begur townspeople have populated these lands which, despite all the inevitable transformations, have lost not a trace of their roots or identity with the passing of time.
Beaches and coves
The Begur coast enjoys a shoreline of unparalleled beauty, whose cliffs and pines, the crystal waters of its hidden coves and its abrupt coastline, make this area one of the most characteristic of the Costa Brava. Begur has eight coves and beaches, located to the north, east and south of the town, with different characters and completely different kinds of natural beauty.
