Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Aiguablava
Pl. d'Aiguablava s/n, Begur, Catalonia, 17255, Spain
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
The vista from this modern white parador, 9 km (6 miles) north of Calella de Palafrugell, is the classic postcard Costa Brava: the rounded Cala d'Aiguablava wraps around the shimmering blue Mediterranean. The parador maximizes its cliff-top perch with large windows everywhere—in the cool-tone rooms (all with private terraces), the bright and airy restaurant, and the many comfortable sitting rooms. There's a walkway down to the cala, where a second restaurant, the summer-only Mar i Vent on the beach, serves fine Costa Brava favorites like the much-heralded anchoas (anchovies) from nearby L'Escala.
