The Costa Brava and its interior, the Empordà, are genuine and well preserved tourist areas on the Mediterranean coast. Their towns and villages, the gastronomy, and the beauty of the landscape are convincing factors when planning a satisfaction-guaranteed vacation.
L'Escala is undoubtedly the ideal place to discover this area. It is the liveliest town on the Costa Brava and has a wonderful gastronomic offer, especially if you are looking for the best seafood and fresh fish. L’Escala has several beaches: the one in the town and the Riells beach. On either side of the beaches are two of the most beautiful coves on the Costa Brava: Cala Montgó to the south and Empúries with its Greco-Roman ruins to the north, where two thousand years of history gaze upon us. Both beaches have typical “chiringuitos” or beach bars serving delicious and freshly made “mojitos”.
L’Estartit, located in the centre of the Costa Brava, is considered an important tourist hub. The nearby Medas Islands and the natural park of Costa del Montgrí are ideal places for all kinds of water sports such as Scuba diving, kayak, paddle boating, surfing, etc. This part of the coast, such as Cala Pedrosa, Cala Ferriola, La Foradada, can be visited on foot starting at Cap de la Barra where we will have the opportunity to admire the views from the cliffs or from a boat which can be rented from any of the multiple boat excursion services in the port. L’Estartit also has good choice of night life and gastronomy. The terraces in the port area, the night bars and the Calle Santa Anna will be a delight for shopping enthusiasts.
Pals and its beach, famous for its paddy fields and golf course, is the ideal place to disconnect and spend a few days with the family, either on the magnificent golden sand beaches such as Playa del Racó or La Illa Roja (nudist beach), or strolling in the streets of the ancient quarter, one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Empordà region. This charming town is also known for its restaurants. You cannot afford to miss the authentic Empordanese “arroz a la cazuela” (rice casserole) with its Denomination of Origin of Pals.
