Beaches, Fishing Villages & the Dali Museum

Palamos sits right in the heart of the Costa Brava, the Wild Coast, deriving its name from the rugged, rocky shoreline, punctuated by excellent beaches and picturesque fishing villages.

For a change of pace, and a day of the bizarre and surreal, consider a trip to Figures, home to the museum of its famous and eccentric native son, Salvador Dali, he of the extravagant mustache and melting pocket watches. Dali spent many years designing and painting the facility—in essence it is itself his single largest work, and contains not only his own creations, but his personal art collection as well.

Next to the busy pier on the Palamos waterfront is the Palamos Fishing Museum, recounting the importance of fishing to this small village. After exploring this small and interesting museum, watch the day's catch being sold to the highest bidder, and enjoy prawns, for which the area is famed.

The only sandy beach in Palamos to have escaped development, Castell is concealed by pine forests, with beautiful coves on either side of the beach. Walk the old smugglers paths around the coast, explore an ancient Iberian settlement at the eastern end of the beach, snorkel in the crystalline water or just soak in the sun like a local.
