If you're looking for a typical Costa Brava beach, this is one of the most accessible. Treumal is a true marvel that extends 400 metres along the foot of a protected area, Pinya de Rosa, where there's a gorgeous botanical garden full of cacti. In the summer, the beach has a newspaper stand, secure car parking and sunbed hire, and for the rest of the year, it's a peaceful spot where you can hear the birds chattering away in the botanical garden. Unsurprisingly, yoga meetings take place here. It's just five minutes by car from the centre of Blanes.
When you think of the Costa Brava, thoughts immediately fly towards serene days spent under the scorching sun, an ocean of sand around you as the actual ocean spreads far off into the horizon. The best beaches on the Costa Brava are everything visitors expect and then some, but what might be surprising is how idyllic and untouched some of them are. If you want a beach packed with excitement and goings-on, you’ll find it. Want somewhere all to yourself for a lazy day of reading in the sun? You might get lucky on that front too. Spain has many incredible beaches, but the ones on the Costa Brava are something else entirely.
