Cala de Aiguablava is one of the most famous and exclusive beaches on the Costa Brava. The bathers and tourists are amazed by the picture that brings together such contrasting elements as the turquoise color of its waters, the rocks that emerge from the sea, the fine-grained sand, the large pine grove, and the pink cliffs.

The beach has a privileged geographic position. It is located in the Bay of Fornells, between the points of Mut and Pi, overlooking the port of Fornells and the White Island (Illa Blanca). In the distance is visible the imposing Begur cape. A nice seaside road leads to the Aiguablava National Parador, located very close, in Punta des Mut point.

Its clean and crystal clear waters, as its name indicates (means blue water in English), the beautiful natural environment and the services with which it counts turn the Cala de Aiguablava into a unique beach.
Despite to be an isolated beach, its fame and easy access make it very busy in the high season. It is advisable to arrive early.
