Recently I had an opportunity to visit Costa Brava’s small beach town Platja d’Aro. The first thing I noticed once I got off the bus and walked toward my hotel was, the peaceful feeling I got from my new surroundings. Unlike Party town Lloret de Mar, Platja d’Aro is pretty peaceful and a perfect beach town for a little Rest and Relaxation. May is a perfect month to visit, but I predict June would be just as lovely. Bellow are some photos of from this pretty little beach town.
The main road above the beach has some awesome little shops and you can also find designer brands here too. Surprisingly it’s a great place for shopping. Platja d’Aro also has a port at the edge of the town and a nearby large campsite too. There are also some watersport activities for adventure lovers.
My only tip would be to not go there alone. Platja d’Aro is meant to be enjoyed with a partner or a small group of people.
Getting there from Barcelona:
Best way to get to Platja d’Aro is by a Sarfa bus. You will recognize them by their orange color. They are very comfy for travel, air-conditioned and even have free Wi-Fi on them. One way ticket from Barcelona’s El-Prat airport is about €17 and from Barcelona Nord station is about €15.
Barcelona Nord station address: Carrer d’Alí Bei, 80, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
