Platja d'Aro

Platja d’Aro, Castell d’Aro and S’Agaró have many outstanding attractions to offer: their privileged geographic location by the sea and excellent connections to important transport hubs, a wide variety of shops, an extensive range of recreational activities and a lively nightlife along with top-quality tourist services. Consisting of three districts, this municipality is well worth a visit at any time of the year. It has developed into one of the most important travel destinations on the Costa Brava and is one of the most popular anywhere around the Mediterranean.

Platja d’Aro is modern and cosmopolitan, so complementing the elegance of S’Agaró, where a recognized coastal path leads along its harmonious architectural ensemble. Castell d’Aro in turn waits with its medieval old town.

The municipality’s three districts offer a range of complementary, dynamic and attractive offers that combine sport, culture, leisure and shopping with the beautiful nature of the surrounding landscape, culminating in the splendid coast with its sweeping, endless beach and small, idyllic coves.

Thanks to its numerous regular events, Platja d’Aro is a dynamic and lively location the whole year round. Of particular note are the Carnaval (Carnival), the Fiesta de la Cerveza (Beer Festival) and the Mercado Medieval de Castell d’Aro (Medieval Market). Companies and organisations also choose the municipality as a venue for congresses and conferences where future projects and innovations are decided.
