Llafranc is very much a sea-side resort, but it's also situated
in the Baix Emporda region of Catalonia. Its history has been
richly aided by visits from such ancient people as the Phoenicians
and the Romans. Not only have there been great archealogical finds
in the area, but there is an abundance of beautiful old inland
villages, extremely well preserved and well worth seeing.
So, why not walk the paths of ancient times and enjoy some spectacular
Llafranc and Calella have recently proved to be a great attraction
for divers from all over Europe. There are three serious diving
schools here in Llafranc as well as many more along the coast.
If you are interested, we can put you in touch.
The region has become a very popular venue for cyclists of all
ages. There are many coastal tracks going along the cliff tops
to take you to other resorts nearby. In addition, there are many
beautiful villages inland to explore.
Boats for hire
In the beach and harbour area there are businesses who will hire
boats of all sizes as well as canoes and boards.
There are several excellent golf courses in the area - Emporda,
pals and, near Girona, a famous championship course.
