Platja de Sa Riera, Sa Riera, Girona
Lie back and bask in the view – there’s nothing but turquoise sea and a few pastel-painted wooden fishing boats. The beach, cosseted by pine-clad pink cliffs on either side, feels nicely sheltered from the outside world
There’s a short row of hotels and cafés directly behind the beach. Otherwise, the Medieval town of Begur is a five minute drive away and is full of excellent restaurants. La Pizzeta (00 34 972 62 38 84) is one of the best and serves a wide range of fantastic dishes (not just pizza) in a pretty, walled, gravel garden.
