Palamós is one of the most beautiful and well-kept fishing villages on Costa Brava. The region is also named Palamós and it has 30 000 inhabitants, a number that increases during the summer months. The area is all about the sea. There is a fishing museum and a fish auction where the catch of the day is sold to the highest bidder. Are you thinking of looking for a property for sale in Palamós? Do remember that the port is the centre of everything. To have your home in the port means everything is within easy reach but also that the noise level might get high during hot summer nights. Palamós is the most important port on this coastal stretch, both in terms of fishing and other commercial sea fare. Palamós has one of the last fishing fleets in northern Spain. Also, the nightlife in the village, restaurants and bars, is mainly located to the port. The region is known for a locally fished shrimp, Gamba in Catalan. Why not take a stroll through the narrow streets in the historic quarters, stop and have a tapa (don’t forget to try the gamba), enjoy the atmosphere and if you are an early bird, you can watch the fishing boats going out to sea in the morning. Although, fishing is still important for the area, tourism is an increasing source of income.The beaches are well-kept and there are many smaller, hidden coves where you can be alone and get away from the buzz of the larger beaches. There are also great possibilities to do any number of water sports. Almost every month there is a reason to celebrate. The area organizes many festivals and you mustn’t miss Fira de la Gamba, the shrimp festival. The reason behind this particular festival is to spread the knowledge and information of the gamba and the ways in which to cook it. Do you decide to go looking for a property for sale in Palamós or its surroundings there are plenty of opportunity to rent it when you are not there. All the festivals bring in plenty of visitors, also during the slower season.
