A family day at the beach in Tossa de Mar

It’s hard to spend your holiday in Tossa de Mar without enjoying the beach and the sea. While you relax in the sun, your children can have fun on the sand and in the water.

At Tossa de Mar there are several beaches and coves that are perfectly suitable for children with clean clear water. In this article, we will tell you more about which beaches to choose with your children in Tossa.

We will also take the opportunity to tell you about the best activities you can do at the beach in Tossa de Mar.

Which beach to go to with children in Tossa de Mar?

The biggest and best known of the beaches in Tossa de Mar is Platja Gran. Located at the foot of the medieval ramparts in an exceptional setting, with quality services provided, it is the perfect place for a day at the beach with children. Right next to it is the little cove named “the ladies’ bathtub”. Not only is the water quite shallow, it is also calm and crystal clear. This is sure to please the little ones who will enjoy the water in safety!

Note that the large beaches are very well equipped. You will find showers and toilets, along with parasol rental services. Some even have “chiringuitos”, little beach bars that offer a variety of beverages, ice creams and often snacks, too.

Do however take care to protect yourself from the sun on the Costa Brava and do not underestimate the strength of the Spanish sun. It is formidable! We recommend that you always use high-factor sun screen for your children and avoid sun exposure at the hottest time of the day. Parasols and t-shirts are also welcome on the beach and in the water when it comes to your young family.

To enjoy a swim all day long, opt for a villa rental with a pool! Club Villamar offers you a wide choice of holiday rentals in Tossa de Mar suited to different budgets.

Beach activities with children in Tossa de Mar

Once you have found the place to spend a day at the beach with your children, all you have left to do is find some activities! The simplest (after sandcastles) is snorkelling: this kind of diving allows you to observe the fauna and flora close to the surface of the water. You only need to know how to swim and to have a snorkel and a mask. This activity should be under adult supervision of course!

It is also possible to opt for various excursions leaving from the beaches in Tossa de Mar. It’s the occasion to enjoy some fun time together as a family discovering the Costa Brava. Here are two ideal excursions for children:

– Excursion on a glass-bottomed boat: Fondo Cristal

One good way to enjoy the beauty of the Catalancoastline is to go on a cruise on a glass bottomed boat. You can observe both the riches of the coast and those of the sea bed. This way you will discover the exceptional maritime environment of Tossa de Mar and the surrounding area.

What’s best? The excursion includes a visit to the caves along the coastline! You can also stop off at Cala Giverola, a cove that is perfect for swimming.

From June to mid-September, there are departures every 30 minutes from Platja Gran in Tossa de Mar between 10am and 6pm. Note that there is a reduced price for children!
