This part of the Costa Brava is much more a getaway for Spaniards than it is a Mecca for foreign tourists. In addition to the Mediterranean coast with its many distractions for sun, sea and beach lovers, the area is popular with golfers with a choice of 9 superb courses within easy reach. It also possesses some of the best diving in Spain, with the only protected national marine park. Other popular activities in the Begur area include walking, mountain-biking and horse riding, all of which are easily accessible all year round. In the winter, one is able to enjoy the luxury of winter sunshine on the coast, with the occasional excursion (2 hours away) to the Pyrenees for skiing
The old town of Begur is found high on a hilltop, presiding over the surrounding Catalonian countryside, offering her visitors fantastic views, interesting cobbled streets and narrow tree lined roads to explore. The central square is an ideal resting place to sit and enjoy the Catalonian way of life over a glass of the excellent local wine, made from grapes grown in the nearby hills. The buildings in the village are beautifully restored and preserved.
