Beaches and water sports Playa de Aro is one of the most popular tourist resorts on the Costa Brava and lies within the municipal area of Castell d'Aro. Its coast has idyllic coves such as Pi o la dels Canyers and large beaches like Playa Grande and Cala Rovira. They all have something in common: crystal-clear waters. The area is a veritable paradise for lovers of water sports, such as scuba diving, sailing or fishing, while hikers and cyclists can explore the many trails that run along the coast. What to see Castell d'Aro spreads out around Beneromiens castle, which dates back to the 11th century. Many parts of the original fortifications have survived to this day. You can visit Santa María church. In the old quarter, there are lots of medieval streets and stone houses that typify traditional Catalan architecture. Next to Cala Rovira lies an archaeological site known as Plà de Palol, where you can see the remains of a Roman villa dating back to the first century. Gastronomy Seafood, fish and locally grown produce are the star attractions. We recommend trying “esqueixadas” (cod salads) and “escalibadas” (roasted aubergine, onion and peppers). And don't miss the succulent chicken casseroles, rabbit with seafood and speciality dishes made from prawns, sea bass and sea bream.
