Platja de l'Estartit

A coastal town's sandy stretch on the Costa Brava, celebrated for its clear waters, diving sites, and proximity to the Medes Islands nature reserve.

Tips from the community

Stretching across the northeastern corner of Spain up to the French border is the famous Costa Brava shoreline: home to some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. L’Estartit is the small seaside town just outside of Girona, which centers around its beach on the tip of the Bay of Roses. Platja de l’Estartit lies less than a mile from the seven islets of the Medes Islands archipelago, a protected marine reserve that offers a rich diversity of flora and fauna reserves. From the shores of l’Estartit, it’s easy to make your way over to the islands to observe everything from brightly colored coral, starfish, and gorgonia at shallow depths or explore the rocky caves and shipwrecks that remain conserved today.
