Discover one of the jewels of Blanes: La Cala de San Francesc

After months of restrictions, now is the best time to be in contact with nature and to enjoy the spectacular environment that surrounds us. That is why today we want to recommend you visit the Cala de Francesc, also known as Cala Bona.

It’s a beach surrounded by pine trees, ideal for families due to its size and ease of access. It can be reached both from the Marimurtra Botanical Garden and from Sant Joan.

This small beach is located just a few kilometers from the urban center of Blanes, facing a quiet and wooded residential area. It is 170 meters long and is made up of coarse-grained sand. You must bear in mind that the entrance slope to the sea is quite steep and the seabed is sandy, except for a rock on the shore, on the right side of the beach.

On both sides, rocks protect the cove, offering bathers the chance to swim in search of fish and other marine species. To the left of the beach there is a rocky area very suitable for diving and angling.

La Cala de San Francesc is one of the three beaches in Blanes that has been awarded with the Blue Flag since 1995. This mark certifies the excellent environmental quality of the beach, both with regard to the sand, the quality of the water and the services offered.

To be chosen for this prestigious award, a series of strict environmental, educational and safety-related criteria, accessories and services must be met and maintained.

Fulfilling this series of requirements, Cala de San Francesc or Cala Bona, has showers, disabled access, surveillance and lifeguard service, a small parking area, a beach bar and rental of sun loungers, umbrellas, kayaks and pedal skates.

Without a doubt, it is an ideal place to capture the true essence of the Costa Brava and to be discovered during the hot summer months.
