Sun-seekers: Malgrat de Mar’s gorgeous slice of the Costa Brava coast, with a tempting choice of sun-drenched golden beaches. Malgrat Central Beach is a firm favourite, while the lesser-known Tordera Beach is a real hidden gem.
Families: Playa del Astillero beach is a great spot for families, with a colourful play area and a kids’ club. The best water park in the area is Water World; it’s packed with slides, pools, rivers and family-friendly places to eat.
Sightseers: Beyond the beach and the modernist architecture, holidays to Malgrat de Mar will reveal the town’s traditional past. There’s plenty to see and explore here, including traditional Catalan architecture and El Castell, a 14th-century castle that towers above the resort.
