A series of sheltered coves and beaches stretching for 16 km along the Mediterranean coast. Starting from the northern-most point of the town’s coastline we can enjoy the Llobeta beach at the Cap de Terme cove, followed by the Calafat, Lo Ribellet, Sant Jordi, Vidre, Forn, Ampolles, Mosques, Torrent del Pi, Xelin, l’Estany Tort, Ambrosia and Arandes beaches among others. Many of them are pebble or shingle beaches. Within the town itself, we recommend trying the Pixavaques, l’Alguer and Cala Pepo beaches.
