The resort was excellent for those wanting a quiet time. There were a few clubs and bars in the area but nothing compared to Lloret de Mar for example, which was fine by me, because I wanted a relaxing holiday! There were a fair amount of restaurants, many down little side streets. There are some English bars, and I saw a German one too.
The beach is a man-made one, immaculately clean with clear water and pedaloes for hire, etc. There is a Life Guard on duty constantly during daylight hours and a First Aid hut which is also available in daylight hours. The tide stays the same practically all day, so no worrying about the towels getting carried away by ...
the sea. It\'s also reasonably calm. Beware with children though, there is a drop in the sea - it\'s not a gradual increase in depth, but a rather sudden one (about half a foot in some places) about 5-8 feet out into the water. One of the best things is that the sand is more like a fine pebbles, no sand sticking to your suncream when the wind blows! It\'s still easy to walk on, but much more suncream friendly.Read More
There are many good shops, lots of estate agents (perfect for dreaming about the villa you want!), a few gft shops (which aren\'t as tacky as many resorts I\'ve been to), there are a few pharmacies and there are shops with things like lilos and other inflatables.
From the beach, there are excursions to other resorts in the area, e.g. lloret de mar, tossa de mar and blanes. I\'ve heard it\'s good to go and see these, so if the price is right, do it!
From the \'tourist\' point of view, the locals are not overly friendly to the holiday makers, especially British. The best thing to do is just smile... I\'m sure this will annoy them more than if you complained!
There was a funfair there when we in San Feliu and it was a good night out, just to walk round and watch everyone trying to win giant teddies and getting thrown about on crazy rides. I think it would be very quiet normally, but if quiet is what you\'re looking for, then go for it!
