PORT DE LA SELVA
Small fishing village, where we can find from fine sandy beaches to pebble beaches, but they all have the crystal clear waters that characterize the coast of Cap de Creus in common, perfect for any maritime activity.
With an excellent seabed, transparent waters that invite you to swim over a sandy bottom and rocky sides that invite underwater exploration, even with simple diving goggles.
It's a small cove, about 15 meters, mainly composed of pebbles, although with some small sandy areas. It is located in a deep bay.
This is a cove with a pebbles and sandy beach between Port de la Selva and Cap de Creus. It always welcomes many boats because it is quite wide and practically inaccessible on foot. It is ideal for spending a weekend with a sailboat!
CAP DE CREUS
Cap de Creus is the easternmost point of the Iberian Peninsula, at an elevation of 67.20 m, it rises above the Mediterranean Sea. The tramontana wind has caused the appearance of capricious erosion forms and has transformed the landscape in a very special way.
It is known for having been the place of residence of Salvador Dalí. The main entrance to the cove is through Sa Farnera, you can also access through the small passage between the island of Portlligat and the coast, Ses Buquelles, but this passage is NOT SUITABLE FOR BOATS.
Virgin cove, formed by pebbles and small rocks, ideal for lovers of diving and / or snorkeling, as you can easily find: seahorses, red corals, cod, eels, dragon fish ... etc.
This town has gone down in history as the home and muse of Dalí. Its beaches and natural charm inspired much of the work of the eccentric Catalan artist. The Platja Gran de Cadaqués is the most central beach in the town, and the one that offers the most services to bathers.
This cove is quite isolated and almost only accessible by boat, with the typical characteristics of Cap de Creus. Very rocky areas and with pebbles. There are usually boats and jet skis. It is located on the edge of Cala Joncols, a larger cove.
Protected from the storm by the Cap Norfeu, it is a narrow beach of dark and coarse sand, not too wide, the entrance to the sea has a fairly steep slope.
It is a crescent-shaped cove, quite closed, which gives it calm waters, without much waves or wind, being surrounded by Pyrenean mountains. In its depths you can find a small sunken boat.
It is part of the Natural Park of Cap de Creus and is an area under comprehensive, terrestrial and marine protection, for the natural wealth of the place and the underwater environment. It has large cliffs and a large number of small caves around it.
Cala Rustella is formed by pebbles and craggy cliffs. It is located in a perfect natural environment to enjoy peacefully with your partner or family.
Magnificent cove with the longed-for turquoise water of the Costa Brava. It is ideal for anchoring and spending the day with family or friends. It is a very good option for the days of tramuntana, as it is very protected from the wind and waves!
CANYELLES AND ALMADRAVA
One of the most famous coves on the Costa Brava thanks to its fine sand. Located very close to the town of Roses. There is a large influx of people and boats in the summer. It is a great option to visit it out of season to relax.
One of the most beautiful bays where you can practice sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, miles of coastline with pristine coves, long beaches and ports perfectly equipped to enjoy the pleasure of sailing, marine reserves and natural parks within walking distance of Roses.
Nicknamed the "Spanish Venice", it is a small cultural and atypical jewel. With more than 25 kilometers of navigable canals across the city.
ATTENTION !! Only residents of Empuriabrava are allowed to enter the canals.
SANT PERE PESCADOR
Situated between the Natural Park of Cap de Creus and the Natural Park of the Medes Islands, it is located in the beautiful middle of the Golf de Roses. It is a paradise for windsurfing and kitesurfing. It is where the river Muga flows into the sea. You are allowed to enter at the end of the river, but be careful because the entrance is very narrow and restricted!
