Seafood is king in Aiguablava. Restaurants everywhere serve traditional paella studded with shellfish, but make sure to try preserved anchovies, red lobster from Begur and gilt-head sea bream, which is best served grilled or baked in a salt crust. Fish not your thing? You’ll find delicious cured meats everywhere, especially on local tapas plates.
Nestled in the hills and fields surrounding Aiguablava are a handful of stunning wineries, where tasters are always welcome, and reds are a speciality. For fine dining, Girona’s medieval walls contain some of the best restaurants in Spain, from triple-Michelin starred dining at El Celler de Can Roca to lively tavernas serving pintxos for just a few Euros.
If you fancy a night in at your Aiguablava holiday home, you’ll find everything you need in nearby supermarkets, while the weekly market at Begur offers plenty of produce fresh from local farms.
