Originally a small fishing village, Platja d'Aro is now a major coastal resort, popular predominantly with Catalans and villa-owning Northern Europeans.The outskirts of Castell-Platja d'Aro include a number of urbanisations including Mas Nou which offers spectacular views over the coast and a championship golf course.Along the coast connecting the main beach with numerous small beaches is the Camí de Ronda.LocationCastell d'Aro is located in the heart of the Costa Brava, 80 km north of Barcelona. It borders with Calonge to the north, Santa Cristina d'Aro to the west, Sant Feliu to the south and the Coast to the East.
