Begur Spain Weather – When to Visit
There isn’t one best time to visit Spain, because the country’s diverse offerings mean you can find something to enjoy at any time of year. April to May and September to October is the best time to visit Spain as the weather is mild and the crowds are moderate. Summer in Spain is packed with unforgettable events like Tomatina. Temperatures dip in October–November, and the possibility of rains is at its highest. Spring brings Easter celebrations (but crowded!) and revives all sorts of activities like Spain-to-Portugal Zip Line and hiking.
Best Begur Spain Beaches
Sa Tuna, located east of the village of Begur, is a winding creek with access which is a discovery for those unexpected visit. This stony cove offers a nice bath in clean and transparent waters and quiet walks to admire its beautiful natural surroundings.
Aiguablava is a nice sized beach tucked into the pine clad headland. It makes for safe swimming as its waters are protected by d’Es Mut point which curves round to make a sort of natural harbor.
Illa Roja is a picture postcard perfect Costa Brava beach…plunging pine clad cliffs give way to a golden sand beach and the bluest of seas. If you fancy being at one with nature…this is the beach for you…Illa Roja is a nudist beach (but feel free to keep your clothes on if you wish).
Sa Riera is one of the biggest beaches on the Begur headland. The beach is sandy and there are showers on the beach. The beach shelves away quite quickly so be careful if your children are small.
Platja del Raco
Platja del Raco is at the very southern end of the stretch of sand that incorporates Pals beach and L’Estartit beach. Lying on the wide sands of Platja del Raco affords cracking views of the Begur headland to your right, and L’Estartit backed by the Montgri Massif and fronted by the marine reserve of the Medes Islands to your left.
