Sant Feliu de Guíxols has breathtaking beaches and coves, such as Sant Feliu and Sant Pol beaches, the latter with its characteristic beach cabins. These beaches are the ideal place for the family. A bath and sunbathe can be taken there. You are also invited to practise some of the many water sports to explore the seabed or enjoy the charm of the coves: diving, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, paddle surfing, snorkelling... with plenty of activities for all ages. Another proposal is to do a boat trip to spend a few hours at sea and know our coast from offshore. You will find also the Kids Club on Sant Pol beach and a Library service on Sant Feliu beach. You can enjoy a lovely day on the beach with all that families need.
KIDS MINI CLUB AND LIBRARY on the beach. Throughout the summer, children between 3 and 12 years old can enjoy a kids mini club on Sant Pol beach, a children’s play area and a programme that includes: bouncy castles, workshop and leisure and educational activities to have fun. The Library on the beach will borrow books for all ages and children will find entertainment.
The coastal path and the viewpoints route are the essentials. It takes about an hour to walk from Sant Pol beach to cala Jonca (a cove) in the harbour, where picnic tables are provided to have a break with the family while enjoying the landscape. Another option is cycling on the Greenway, a cycling path that also begins in the harbour and follows the old railway “Carrilet”. It is suitable for all ages. For the bravest, there is the Via Ferrata on Cala del Molí, an spectacular climbing route over the sea. It is a perfect place to start climbing. If you don’t have enough, we invite you to discover Sant Feliu de Guíxols inland. Hike up slowly with your family through Ardenya and Gavarres Massifs, with the aid of Natura Local app, which has self-guiding routes and itineraries. These routes are designed to explore the natural heritage of our surroundings. It is a new way to discover the nature, raising children’s awareness of the importance on the environment and the own values.
We invite you to stroll around the city centre and the Sea promenade at the same time that you enjoy the architec- ture, eat an ice cream or have a horchata (almond milk drink) in the shade of a terrace. You will also find plenty of commercial services and specialty stores that offer a wide range of quality products for all tastes and ages... And for the playful, you will have a great time at the Toy Museum, where you relive your childhood with ancient toys and rooms full of mystery...
