Platja del Castell Palamós, Girona Costa Brava

No high-rises here and virtually untouched, not bad for one of Spains costas. Staying at camping Benilux, less than 1 k from the beach with some awesome walks and cycling routes. Popular with Spanish, especially from Barcelona at weekends and holidays.
I &1/2 hours north from Barcelona and 1/2 hour from Girona airport (Which is the airport for Barcelona when flying on budget airlines)
