Playa d’Aro is a popular beach resort that lies approximately halfway between Lloret de Mar and Begur. Located a short distance from the beach resort is the large modern town of Platja d’Aro which has a fantastic historical town centre that is well worth the short journey.

The most popular period in Playa d’Aro is the spring to autumn period with temperatures often climbing to the low 30s during these months. However, the resort never gets too busy and that is one of its main pro points. The temperatures drop to around the mid-teens in the winter months and while there will still be a few things to do in the off-season, Playa d’Aro doesn’t see the same level of activity as the summer. Because it is exclusively a beach resort as well, we definitely recommend a trip during the summer months.
The main attraction to Playa d’Aro is of course its wonderful beach. As well as having a long stretch of soft sand to relax on, there are also sandy coves and more rocky areas to explore for the more adventurous. On top of this, there are diving schools for you to check out and a variety of water sports on offer. Trips to the town of Platja d’Aro are popular from the beach but it is also a great base for exploring other parts of the superb Costa Brava coast. Excursions to Barcelona, Girona and the Pirenees are all close enough for day-trips, as is the incredible Dali museum.
Playa d’Aro has a selection of excellent accommodation options, most of which are right on the beach itself giving you very easy access to and from there. The vast majority are standard hotels with all of the facilities and amenities that you would expect from a buzzing beach resort in Spain. Dining out is also a great experience in this resort with a combination of Catalan, Mediterranean and international dishes for you to try.
