An ideal spot for enjoying pleasant, comfortable holidays at any time of the year.
L’Estartit is a privileged place. The variety of different landscapes, the long beach, and the tourism, shopping and leisure opportunities make this Costa Brava area an ideal spot for enjoying pleasant, comfortable holidays at any time of the year.
Strolling through the narrow streets or along lively Carrer de Santa Anna, visitors can imagine the pace of life in former times, the seafaring traditions, the old sailors’ taverns and the picturesque processions on religious feast days that can still be seen today.
The long beach divided into three sectors: the main beach (1 km x 100 m), Els Griells beach (0.5 km x 50 m) and La Pletera beach (1.8 km x 70 m).
The zones for swimming and the zones for water sports are clearly marked by buoys.
Main beach: situated facing the town residential centre, where most of the beach users stay.
Els Griells beach: situated between the Ter Vell Nature Reserve and the residential estate which lends it its name, Els Griells. It is not used as much as the main beach. Here are to be found the main water-sports operators. The Ter Vell Nature Reserve, backing onto the beach, makes its surroundings very pleasant.
La Pletera beach: this is the least-used section, with practically no houses in the vicinity. Along with the Ter Vell Nature Reserve, this beach is included in a programme for restoration of the coastal dunes and Baix Empordà marshes. Its surroundings and its limited accessibility make it a peaceful, little-visited spot of considerable natural beauty.
There is an area adapted to practise kite surfing. It is possible to take dogs on this part of the beach.
The rich variety of landscapes in our territory offers visitors a wide range of sport and leisure activities.
The network of hiking, cycling and ATB trails is now one of the star attractions of our tourist amenities; pleasant walks and guided visits are other ways to discover the beauty sports in the area.
Itineraries: The park offers to the visitor 17 itineraries to enjoy the park and a wide variety of natural and cultural landscapes.
