A photographic tour around the little town of Tossa de Mar
In complete contrast to the summer time hustle and bustle of Lloret de Mar you can quite easily take a short trip up the coast to the nice little resort of Tossa de Mar. While Lloret is known for its hectic nightlife Tossa is known for having a much more laid back atmosphere. To reach Tossa you have the choice of taking the boat directly from the beaches of Lloret or Fenals or take the bus from Lloret's bus station...whichever way you choose to get there you wont be disappointed both journeys have fantastic views of the coast!
Tossa has 4 immaculate beaches, the main one Playa Gran stretching from the walls of the Vila Vella to the next beach of Mar Menuda. Lining the beach are an excellent choice of restaurants, also as you stroll through the streets away from the seafront you will find a multitude of bars, bodegas and cafes. From the kiosks at Playa Gran you can book your tickets for several watersports activities, water skiing, jet ski's, scuba diving or a boat trip to other nearby resorts.

is market day!
Behind the ancient walls of 'Vila Vella' the old part of Tossa is just like taking a step back in time. As you walk around the maze of narrow cobbled streets you will see some of the prettiest little houses you have ever come across! You wont find any shops whatsoever in this area but there 3-4 very nice restaurants/bars.
Ava Gardner on Tossa de Mar beach and below you can see Frank Sinatra sat at the table 2nd from the right!
This beautiful bronze statue of Ava Gardner is a reminder of when in 1950 Tossa de Mar was the filming location for the film 'Pandora and the Flying Dutchman' released in '51' starring James Mason & Ava Gardner. At the time she was married to Frank Sinatra, who also paid a visit to Tossa during the making of the film.
