Cracking beaches, rich history and the famous Catalan culture - it’s no surprise that Tossa de Mar is a popular haunt for tourists from across the world. Fans of sand and surf will find much to enjoy at the three beaches on this stretch of Costa Brava coastline. But there is so much more to the town than its beautiful coast.
The medieval castle, Ametllers Roman villa, Can Magi Tower and the striking parish church are just some of the sights that thrill visitors, year after year. Indeed, its fortified medieval Old Town is the only example of a walled settlement that is still fully intact on Catalan shores. And, with these top Airbnb properties in and around the town, there are plenty of places in which to base yourself during your exploration of this beautiful area. Take a look at our top 10 picks for Airbnb vacation rentals in Tossa de Mar and start planning that Spanish holiday!
