The town is located in the heart of the Empordà region and is known for having some of the best beaches on the Costa Brava. In fact, although we say beaches, in most cases they are little coves (some more hidden than others) and they are truly spectacular. There are eight beaches and coves in total that make up the coast of Begur and each one is unique, so it's easy for everyone to find their perfect bit of coastline.
But Begur is much more than beaches and impressive cliffs. It is a town packed with history and, although the most significant monument is its medieval castle, it also has colonial-style homes, defensive towers from the 16th century and a Gothic-style church. Plus, it is very easy to enjoy these sights, as most of the centre of Begur is a pedestrian-only zone, perfect for wandering around discovering every nook and cranny.
For our sporty guests, Begur also has coastal paths (Camí de Ronda) so you can enjoy nature and get down to some of the town's great beaches and coves.Book Now
Although it sounds typical, Begur is full of places to discover that you'll never want to leave. The kind that make a home in this town suddenly part of your future plans. One example is Sa Tuna, a cove that has it all: surrounded by nature with the old fishermen's houses that are typical of this area. It isn't very easy to get to this beach and that is, surely, what makes it such a special discovery.
The truth is, if you wander into town it's hard not to stumble upon charming places, because Begur is a town packed with history. Nevertheless, we recommend visiting some of its colonial-style homes, built by townspeople who returned after making their fortune in America in the 19th century. There are many of them: Can Sora, Can Pi, Casa de la Vila... just wander a bit and you'll find them.
