Begur - Costa Brava - Spain
Begur Spain: A pretty coastal town situated between Calella and L'Estartit on Spain's Costa Brava coastline, Begur is a popular holiday destination boasting some of the finest beaches in the region.
Among the best are Platja del Raco, Illa Roja, Sa Riera, Aiguafreda, and Sa Tuna.
Its 4,000 population increases considerably during the summer months when many holidaymakers arrive to enjoy the fine weather and beautiful coastline.
The attractive old town is overlooked by its ancient sixteenth century castle, its winding cobbled streets still home to old fishermen's cottages, which look much as they have for centuries.
Long before even these were built the area was visited by Iberians, Romans and Moors as Begur was established as a town.
A number of cultural events take place in and around Begur throughout the year, some of the best known being the Fira d'Indians in September, and the Begur Festival of Music in August each year.
