“Platja” and “Cala”: what is the difference?

Let’s start with a small aspect of Spanish vocabulary! During your research and in this very article, you will hear both “platjas” and “calas” being mentioned. If you want to know (let’s say the) difference(s) between these two terms, let us help you.

“Platja” is Catalan for ‘beach’: a large expanse of sand that borders the sea. As to “cala”, this refers to coves or more precisely rocky inlets, like you see in other parts of the Mediterranean.

It’s up to you to choose between large expanses of beach, very busy in the high season and the more intimate, often rocky coves of the Costa Brava.

If you come to Tossa de Mar with children,the “platjas” are more suitable. They offer a variety of services and amenities that will appeal to families.
