A hub for fishing and trade, this was initially the natural harbour of Palafrugell. Since 1967 the traditional folk concert Cantada de Habaneras has been held here. To preserve its heritage value, since 2006 only traditional boats have been able to dock here.
The beach of Port Bo was initially the natural port of Palafrugell and became a centre of commercial and fishing activities. Conserving its original street layout and white porched buildings on the seafront, it is a good example of traditional architecture.
The protected Historical Area of Port Bo takes in two zones located at its far ends - Port Pelegrí and Canadell providing a visual complement to the historical area. In 1995 the Generalitat Government of Catalonia classified it as a Cultural Asset of National Interest in the Historical Site category.
A good way to enjoy this beach is to attend the Habanera Singing, which since 1967 has taken place in the first week of July, and in which important groups of singers from Catalonia take part.
