About Santa Pol De Mar Costa Brava fishing village Beach day

Santa pol de Mar is a small beach town that is located about one hour outside of Barcelona to the north. The town is not too touristy and overly filled with the typical beach town shop that sell clutter for the beach. The town is relatively unknown, and in my opinion, a hidden gem.

Historically, the town is an old fishing community. Indeed, some traditional fishing still occurs. On the beach after stepping of the platform are some small wooden fishing boats.

One great advantage of Santa Pol de Mar is that because of the lack of tourists and it's distance from Barcelona, the beach does not suffer from the typical problems of Barcelona's beaches such as pick pockets, bag thieves and constant interruptions from illegal alcohol vendors.

When I go to Santa Pol de Mar, I take a sun umbrella, beach towel and a bottle of water. These items can also be bought in town. This is the place to go if you want a chilled beach day in perfect cristal clear water.
