Even though its historical roots are evident due to the menhirs dotted around the region and the dolmen of the Cova dels Moros, today Platja d’Aro is a truly cosmopolitan resort, attracting both large scale tourism and businesses, with important convention centres offering a wide range of services for all types of event.
The coastline of Platja d’Aro is dominated by a 3 kilometre long sandy beach, ideal for all kinds of water sports.
The Cavall Bernat monolithic stone, the symbol of Platja d’Aro can be found at the North end of the town.
The camí de ronda, a footpath running along the whole of the Costa Brava, winds its way along the rocky coast and cliffs and leads to superb beach coves such as la Rovira, Sa Cova, del Pi, d’En Ros, d’Es Canyers, Belladona, Cap Roig, l’Ermita, Treumal and Can Cristus.
Towards the South, the camí de ronda is ideal for an evening walk towards the elegant and quiet resort of S’Agaró.
