Platja de Llafranc, Catalonia

Sheltered by steep green hills, the beach at Llafranc is picturesque, often crowded and home to scores of plush yachts. When the wind whips up, the waves can crash on to the coarse sand knocking down raucous kids and even their dads in their wake. A smart tree-lined promenade overlooks the beach, there are numerous pricey restaurants on hand and you can pay to park a few hundred yards up the hill.  Popular with pasty British tourists, Platja de Llafranc is a pleasant place to spend a few hours. 7/10
