Palamos self catering Holiday Apartments - golden sands and sparkling blue seas
Palamos is a modern resort in Spain that boasts of a rich culture, breathtaking sandy beaches and beautiful Mediterranean climate. Palamos is situated 55 minutes’ drive from Girona Airport on the North Eastern Mediterranean coast of Spain. The resort sits in the heart of Catalonian province close to turquoise Mediterranean waters and spectacular coastal mountains. The town boasts a rich culture, stunning sand beaches, beautiful Mediterranean climate and friendly Palamós holiday rentals. Palamos is traditionally a fishing town that was founded in 1277. The town still retains its fishing industry, but it has since seen tourism grow. Today the old fishing resort is separated from a new tourist resort by a headland and from a sports harbour by a promontory. Palamós holiday villas offer exciting packages and the opportunity to tour the area’s fishing museum.
Venture into the streets of the town and witness several majestic castles and ancient churches that date back hundreds of years. In the modern resort, enjoy a beautiful yacht harbour with luxury yachts ready to indulge your fantasy cruise excursion and the sports harbour that plays host to fun family holiday activities. Head over to one of Palamos' beautiful beaches and creeks and take a dip where diving is safe. Have lots of fun with the friendly and welcoming locals and learn their culture and way of life first hand. Alternatively, lie back on the sandy beach, relax and enjoy the gentle sun and cool sea breeze.
