Tamariu is a subsite of the Catalan municipality Palafrugell on the Costa Brava in Spain. It lies on the Mediterranean about 100 kilometers south of the French border in Catalonia and in 2011 had 273 inhabitants. Tamariu probably got its name from the tamarind trees. The peaceful promenade along the beach is lined with spiked, former fishermen's houses.
The nearest large towns are five kilometers west Palafrugell and 30 kilometers in a westerly direction, the provincial capital of Girona.
The former fishing village now lives from tourism, which multiplies the number of inhabitants in the summer months.
The coastline itself consists of sandy and rocky beach. Due to the deeply incised main bay, the water is relatively calm and warm even in stormy seas. The Sant Sebastià lighthouse stands on the 165m high mountain of the same, and separates from the neighboring village of Tamariu Llafranc.
For tourists, a campsite, some apartment houses and hotels are available. For many years, a dive center is located in the resort, which offers boat dives to the vicinity of L' Estartit and dives in the 15m deep and sheltered bay.
Tamariu is made and by plane through the 70 km distant from Tamariu Girona Airport by car or a regular bus service from the coastal road to reach.
Since the bay of Tamariu contains many different habitats in a small area, the place is regularly target marine biology excursions of the University of Tübingen.
