L'Illa Roja

One of the most famous nude beaches in Catalonia, with that particular reddish rock in the middle. Much quiet than most nearby beaches even in this tourist area in Costa Brava.

Last visited: June 2017

How to get there

From Girona or Figueres, take the road to Torroella de Montgrí and then road C-31 to Pals. Before arriving there, turn left and continue to the southern end of Platja del Racó. You can walk from this beach to Illa Roja. To the closest parking area, continue along the road to Sa Riera, and then, in a residential area, turn left onto Carrer Illa Roja. There is very small parking area, so you'll probably have to leave your car in the street. It is also possible to park in Sa Riera and then walk the coastal path along the edge of the cliffs. The only access to Illa Roja is through the stairs in the rocky outcrop that separates it from Platja del Racó.

The beach

Not very long (170 m), but still one of the largest coves in Costa Brava. It is divided into two parts, and the zone in front of the rock is quite narrow. It is made of coarse sand, with a steep slope when you enter the water.
Behind the beach, vertical cliffs some 50 m high. The coastal path that goes along the edge offers fantastic views.


In the cove itself, there is a beach bar in the summer season. Everything else can be found in Platja del Racó.


L'Illa Roja has traditionally been a nude beach. It seems that now more and more textiles are discovering this beautiful spot, so it is a mixed that beach everyone can enjoy. Nevertheless, some paintings in the rock remind that this is a "platja nudista" (nude beach).

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
