Tossa de Mar or Roses?

Greetings! We are traveling to Costa Brava and will have 3-4 nights to stay and are trying to decide between Roses and Tossa de Mar. We are a late 30s/early 40s couple and love adventure, water sports, good food/wine, sandy beaches, and some culture and activity, but not too much craziness with loud partying until the wee hours, we value sleep! Which one of these towns fits the bill better? Thank you for any help!

Roses is a much bigger town than Tossa de Mar.

I think both towns are quiet.

Tossa is very pretty with picturesque castle and walled town and nice beaches. Plenty of restaurants and some decent bars ... Which are much busier Fri and sat as people travel up from Barcelona for the weekend. I'd stay closer to the castle end of resort. Hardly any British package holidays so influence is Spanish/Catalan/French. You may also benefit from considering Calella de Palafrugell as is less remote and easy to visit Llafranc and Tamariu which are 2 lovely bays but possibly too quiet of an evening for you.
