One of the main attractions for renting a villa in Begur are the Ronda hiking paths. These routes follow the coastline and were previously mainly used for smuggling snuff, as well as by fishermen and sailors after a shipwreck. Due to the short distance between Pals and Begur you can also take advantage of these routes staying in a villa in Pals.
The attraction of Begur in comparison to the other coastal towns is the extraordinary beauty of its coves. Aiguablava is perhaps the most beautiful bay in the region, with crystal clear water and a relaxing calm ambience. If you rent a villa in Begur you can also take advantage of the following beaches and coves: Platja del Raco, Illa Roja, Sa Riera, Aiguagfreda, Sa Tuna, Platja Fonda, and Fornells.
As befits a rocky area, the local villages are characterized by gastronomía de roca (the rock cuisine), which is based on products such as molluscs that thrive on rocky grounds in contact with the sea. Rent a villa in Begur or Pals and enjoy these special treats.
