Playa Grande is Tossa de Mar’s main beach – it has a wide range of facilities such as showers, sunbeds, and lifeguards, as well as playgrounds and traffic-free paths along the coast.

Its centrepiece is the imposing Castillo de Tossa de Mar, which overlooks the town and the Mediterranean Sea. The only surviving fortified medieval town along the Catalonian coastline, Villa Vella (old quarter) has well-preserved towers and defensive walls dating back to the 14th century.
