Cavall Bernat

Price: free of charge

Cavall Bernat is probably the most photographed object in Platja d'Aro and one of its eternal symbols over the years. It is rare to find so close to a beach a monolith over 7 feet tall. It has been gaving shade to many generations of swimmers and still continues erected on the northern end of the Platja Gran, in Platja d'Aro.
