Time Out says

This beach has no services but doesn't get overrun in the summer, and welcomes nudists. Go in the morning as the cliffs can create shade from mid-afternoon

Yes, Begur has a lot of amazing beaches, so why choose this one in particular, which doesn't have any services? Apart from the fact that it's not saturated with beautiful people like Sa Tuna or Aiguafreda, we like it because it's the only nudist beach in the central part of the Costa Brava, because the intense red colours of the rocks that emerge from the bay transforms it into a strange and living place, and because its semicircular shape creates a very inviting beach. It'll also be appealing for some because it remains relatively unvisited by groups or children, as it requires quite a long walk to get there from the Camí de Ronda coastal path. And, of course, in reality the coolest beaches are the ones without ice cream stands and that let you believe for a while that the rest of your life doesn't exist. The only problem with this spot is that the high walls of the cliffs surrounding it create shade from the mid-afternoon onwards, so get there early to make the most of the morning.
