Additional Location Information
The town of Pals is a medieval walled enclosed, now restored and very well conserved. The first reference to the town dates from 889. With just over 2,800 inhabitants Pals and the surrounding area offer you a wide range of things to do, from organised activities to gastronomic routes with the most exquisite recipes. You can play golf, scuba dive or go windsurfing at the beach of Pals. You can enjoy nature by walking over the dunes or cycling through the rice fields.
Can Caranta is situated on the Medieval town of Pals. Quiet area and nice views, located in the heart of “Baix Empordà” (Costa Brava). At 7km from the magnificent beaches of Pals, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc.
It is a one and a half hour drive north of Barcelona, and 40 minutes from Girona airport. It only takes 45 minutes drive to the French border.
Enjoy the surrounding secluded beaches of: Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc or Tamariu (3km). Small sandy bays with rocky headlands, pine trees and clean water. Or if you prefer in Pals beach, at 14 Km. you’ll find a wide-open 3.5 kilometre long beach with the Medes Islands in the background. Its special topography makes it the ideal spot to practice all types of water sports like windsurfing.
Only a few kilometres from Palafrugell, in the town of L’Estartit, is the Medes Islands Marine Reserve, an archipelago formed by seven small islands that are admired the world over by people who practise underwater sports. A perfect place to practise: scuba diving, sea watching, snorkelling... and you don’t need to be an expert, because you will find professionals who will guide you and show you the most marvellous places in this privileged sea bed.

However, you can also discover the Empordà from the air... in a balloon, a helicopter or an ultra-light aircraft, you will have a unique experience to remind you of Palafrugell.

Another part of the municipality is made up of the nuclei of Calella, Llafranc and Tamariu, on the coast. These former fishermen’s districts have become important tourist centres thanks to the beauty of their setting and their wide variety of restaurants and activities. The old fishermen’s neighbourhoods grew up around the coves and they have conserved their nautical tradition; here, in the summertime, you can enjoy the concerts of havaneres (sailors’ songs), the most famous of which is held in Calella.
