There is a year-round festival atmosphere in Platja D'Aro, with the carnival and beer festival being particular highlights. If you’re travelling with kids, Platja D’Aro is close to the Aquadiver water park, and Costa Brava’s biggest amusement park ‘Magic Park’ in Lloret de Mar. If you enjoy golf, the Mas Nou Golf Club is set high above the resort and boasts spectacular views across the area. Explore the surrounding Gavarres mountains on your holiday to Platja D’Aro, either by foot, bike, or on horseback.
The main long sandy beach, Platja Gran, stretches out for two kilometres and you can hire a sunbed and admire the dazzling turquoise sea stretching out in front of you. If you’re keen on action holidays, Platja d'Aro has the usual range of water sports on offer, from water skiing to kayaking, and plenty of children’s activities available in the summer too. Either side of the Platja Gran beach you can explore the small sandy coves, and head to Cala del Pi and Cala dels Canvers beaches if you want to escape the crowds along the main Platja d'Aro strip.
