What is there to do in Pals?

Arkhé Hotel Boutique is located in one of the most charming towns of the Costa Brava. Its surrounding areas also offer the visitor a wide range of activities to do at any time of the year. 

Costa Brava beach

Coves and Beaches

Pals is located a few minutes from the most idyllic coves and beaches of the Costa Brava. Dive into its crystalline waters, go snorkelling or just relax at the l’Illa Roja beach, Aiguablava beach or the Aigua Xèlida cove. And if you love swimming, be sure to try the Vies Braves, sea swimming lanes to safely enjoy being in the “open water”. 

Signature cuisine in Catalonia


Catalonia has always been a region known all over the world for its rich traditional gastronomy. Moreover, in the last decade it has also become a focus point for Signature Cuisine. The Celler de Can Roca Restaurant (just 40 km from the hotel), the Bo.Tic Restaurant in Corçà (17 km away), the cuisine of Ferran Adrià and many more are just a few examples and are known internationally.

Medieval town of the Costa Brava

Medieval Town Walks

Stroll through the most beautiful medieval towns of the Costa Brava: from the old town of Pals itself, to Begur, Palau Sator, Peratallada and Monells, to name just a few. Travel back in time, passing through their perfectly conserved, narrow, cobbled streets. 

Cap Roig festival

Music Festivals

The Empordà also forms the backdrop for the most spectacular music festivals on the Costa Brava. Internationally renowned artists such as Elton John, Ben Harper and Gloria Gaynor have performed at the Portaferrada Festival, the Cap Roig Festival or the Castell de Peralada Festival. Enjoy live music evenings surrounded by castles and fortresses or on the seafront.

Fair around Pals


Explore the streets full of aromas, colours and culture at the fairs which take place throughout the year around Pals: from the popular White Summer Fair, to the craft fairs such as the cork-themed fair - Fira del Tap i el Suro, the Fira de la Mel (Honey Fair) or the Fira de l’Avet (Christmas Fir Tree fair).

Bike tour through Baix Empordà

Cycling Excursions

Baix Empordà is also an ideal area for cycling. There are several easy and medium-difficulty routes where you can enjoy the fields and landscape at any time of the year. The Burricleta centres are establishments where you can rent electric bicycles to travel on rural roads without having to make too much effort and thus enjoy the beautiful views and an experience which respects the environment.
