Expert review of Platja Fonda

Fabulously secluded, dramatic little cove near Begur. The perfect hideaway.

This is one of the most dramatic and unspoilt little coves I know – the kind of place you see from above but can rarely get to. Set way down at the foot of a cliff beneath the Hotel Aiguablava, it’s only really accessible on foot or from the sea and consequently there are no buildings in site. Just crystalline, teal-coloured water and an often empty stretch of coarse, dark sand backing onto steep rocks and tall lush, pine forests. Sometimes you dream of a beach being your own private hideaway and I love the way this really does feel like that. I’ve happily spent hours here just stretched out on the sand gazing out to sea but if you’re a keen swimmer, you’ll also love the deep water. 

Expert tips: 
This is very much a quiet cove so the only facilities are one small beach bar.
