Santa Susanna is fronted by a wide sandy beach and backed by the thickly forested mountains of the Massif Montenegre.

This is an ideal holiday destination for families and couples who want to explore the Costa Brava area.
What to do in Santa Susanna
Santa Susanna is all about soaking up the sun on the sands next to the Mediterranean Sea. The golden sand beach here is awash in palm trees, sun loungers and sunshades, and there are many small eateries serving up cold drinks, ice cream and snacks. Water sports enthusiasts will also love the fact that there are many facilities that offer boat charters, snorkelling gear, inner tubes and sea kayaks. At night, the seaside promenade is lit up with inviting restaurants and bars that offer local Catalonian and international fare and cool breezes off the sea.
For a bit of history, stroll the streets of the town to see ancient buildings, shops and chapels. The castle of Can Rates is intriguing for its 16th century watchtower that was built to protect the town from pirate attacks. The chapel of La Mare de Deu de Gracia is picturesque for its incredible views over the town, and the Castell Medieval del Comte de Valltorder is a great place to take the kids for its medieval banquets that feature exciting jousting matches followed by colourful flamenco dances.
