Time Out says
Elegance, beauty and charm - that's what you'll find in this bay on the outskirts of Sant Feliu de Guíxols
This marvellous bay on the outskirts of Sant Feliu de Guïxols is the beach that many locals recall from their childhoods. Invaded by brick in the past 30 years, there is still a lot of beauty: the beachfront houses from the start of the last century built by entrepreneurs who made their fortune in the Americas before returning home, the elegant S'Agaró Vell residential area, and the sumptuous Hostal de la Gavina, which gives onto the start of one of the most spectacular parts of the Camí de Ronda coastal path. The result is a comfortable urban beach with a cushioned, very controlled, wild touch particularly on the rocks and coves situated to the extreme south. In the evenings, you can still find the charm of the most elegant side of the Costa Brava, with foreign families heading out for dinner somewhat curiously dressed. Two things need to be pointed out: first, we're talking about the beach of Sant Pol, not of S'Agaró. S'Agaró is the place whose lands extend inland toward Vall d'Aro and is, above all, a commercial name; secondly, its strategic situation on the outskirts of town but in a civilised setting means that Sant Pol is the ideal beach for swimming at night, especially in the corner sheltered by the wall in the far south.
