Playa D’Aro Guide Holiday Rentals, Villas & Apartments to Rent, Holiday Homes
The cosmopolitan town of Platja d'Aro on the spectacular Costa Brava sits alongside the elegant village of S'Agaró with its charming old town and Castell d'Aro, the historical medieval centre of the area.
Following the Coast of the Municipality of Castell - Platja d’Aro, there are 8 stunning beaches including Platja Gran and Cala Rovira that provide a full spectrum of facilities. To get away from the crowds, the coves of Cala del Pi or Cala dels Canyers are the place to go where snorkeling is popular.
The town itself is a treasure trove of boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants serving up Mediterranean, Empordà and international dishes. Part of the evening entertainment is wandering around the narrow cobbled streets in the old quarter of Castell d'Aro that date back to the time of the Moors.
