Here is another little town you should discover in Costa Brava. This time, it is pretty far north, almost bordering with France. It is a great option in Costa Brava if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. The town itself has plenty to offer and it is less than an hour away from important coastal towns such as Cadaqués, Port de la Selva or Roses just to name a few. You have easy access to Cap de Creus in which you can enjoy some excursions to coves or just enjoy nature following the walking trails along the way.
Just to know some basic information, it has less than 5.000 inhabitants. The easiest and fastest way to get there from Barcelona is by car and it takes a bit more than an hour and a half. Another option if you don’t have a car is to take the train. It takes two hours if you take the MD train or two hour and twenty minutes if you go for the regional train. The route is interior therefore you don’t really see the coast along the way but you do get to see the beautiful Catalan countryside.
Llançà itself has little neighborhoods which depending on what you want to do some may suit better than others. Staying around the port is great if you are looking to do some water activities such as paddle surfing or kayaking (SK Kayak is a great option if you are looking to rent kayaks). If you want to be a bit more relaxed and walk around town it is better to stay around the center, the only downside is that you are further from the beach.
One of my favorite things about Llançà is the wide variety of beaches there are just along the coast of the town. There are more than 15 different beaches around the town and of course little coves along the way as well so there are plenty of options to choose from. I personally recommend heading to Cap de Creus and discovering the beautiful nature in there but I understand you my want to explore the nearest beaches too! All of them have their own beauty so whatever you choose, the scenery will be great.
