Llafranc opens onto a cove between Punta de la Torre and Cap de Sant Sebastià. The beach is sheltered from the north and from the Llevant by the Sant Sebastià mountain. The bottom of the cove is dominated by the shore, although there is a large flat area in the centre of the cove. On the eastern side of the beach is the port of Llafranc, which is protected from the north and north-east, and a little from the sea. On days when the Tramuntana or the Llevant wind is blowing (without reaching great magnitudes, of course), it is possible to make a calm dive around the shore.
There are two possible routes: the first consists of following the blocks of the spit and looking for the typical fauna of this type of environment; the second route, on the other hand, heads eastwards, alongside the steep wall, exploring its numerous inlets and small caves. Life is quite abundant, with some congregation among the blocks and sapiens in the spring. The most outstanding features in this area are the sculptures known as Illa Negra and Illa Blanca, with an underwater passage at a depth of -1 m, which is of interest to beginners in snorkelling.
Further to the east, between Punta del Pinell and Cap de Sant Sebastià, the profile first drops to -20 m and then descends much more gently between rocks covered by some gorgonians.
