General Impressions of Platja D'aro and port

Platja D'aro is now still crowded but our pictures were taken in the cold off season, most restaurants at the beach promenade were even closed. The main shopping street was open. These little coast towns at the Costa Brava come to life during the summer. Outside the main season, everyone is gone. The deserted old amusement park is a confrontation with reality.

In the small port, you find many sailing boats and yachts. This is the most modern part of town. New apartments are being build. We liked the enormous bush, shaped into a green duck.

Platja D'aro is nu nog steeds druk bezocht door toeristen maar onze foto's werden getrokken tijdens een koude periode buiten het vakantieseizoen. De meeste restaurants aan de strandpromenade waren gesloten. Alle zaken in de hoofdwinkelstraat waren open for business. Deze kleinere badplaatsen aan de Costa Brava komen tot leven in de zomer. Buiten het seizoen gaat iedereen weg. Een verlaten pretpark is de confrontatie met deze realiteit. 

In de kleine jachthaven liggen vele zeilbootjes. Dit is het moderne gedeelte van de stad waar men vele nieuwe appartementen bouwt. De heel grote struik, geschoren in de vorm van een eend maakte wel indruk op ons.
