Platja Gran

This beach is partially urban, but with an important natural area that includes the site where Radio Liberty used to broadcast from. The area in front of this zone has traditionally been a nudist beach. The entire beach forms part of the Natural Park of Montgrí, les Medes i el Baix Ter. There is an important and delicate area of dunes on the seaward side of Platja Gran that has been cordoned off to prevent damage from uncontrolled access. To the north is Platja del Grau and to the south is Platja del Racó (in the municipal area of Begur).
