Beaches, Semiurban
The Racó beach combines a vast straight sand line with some rocks covered with pine trees, so characteristic in the small coves of the Costa Brava.

The Racó beach combines a vast straight sand line with some rocks covered with pine trees, so characteristic in the small coves of the Costa Brava. It occupies the western end of the long sandy beach, of about ten kilometres, ending at the port of L´Estartit and forms the bay of Pals.

It is 300 metres long with a width of about 65 metres and is composed of fine golden sand. The entry slope into the sea is fairly steep, the seabed is sandy, with some isolated rocks. It is equipped with all kinds of services such as showers, toilets, surveillance, two bars and restaurants. It also has access ramps for the disabled.

To the right it is bordered by the point of Espinuda, from which a pleasant coastal footpath starts off towards Sa Riera and continues until Aiguafreda. The first beach you can encounter, of about one hundred metres, is Illa Roja, where nudity is permitted. From the trail there are good views over the bay of Pals and the Illes Medes.
