Estartit

Estartit is located in the Spanish region of Catalonia at the northern end of the Costa Brava. Estartit's position, between the mountains and the plain of the River Ter, gives it the dual advantages of 15 kilometres of beautiful rocky coastline together with one of the longest sandy beaches on the Costa Brava.

The Roca Maura towers over the well facilitated holiday destination of Estartit. Originally a small fishing village, a carefully managed development over a number of years, has created a charming small scale resort, which takes full advantage of its glorious coastal position and stunning scenery.

The resort is approximately one hour’s drive from the airfield at Girona.

Beaches
The municipal area boasts about 15 kilometres of long, varied coastline, with 5.4 km of beaches and 9.7 km of rocky shores.

Visitors to L’Estartit will find shallow, sandy beaches with a wide range of services for families on holiday. The small coves around the Montgrí coast are accessible only by foot or boat, but offer ideal diving conditions in peaceful surroundings.

Platja Gran de l´Estartit is a long beach divided into three sections: the main beach (1 km x 100 m), Platja dels Griells (0.5 km x 50 m) and Platja de la Pletera (1.8 km x 70 m). Swimming areas and sports areas are well cordoned off with buoys. The beach has fine sand and shallow waters.

Main Beach is the most popular bathing place, situated just opposite the main residential area in l´Estartit.
Platja de Griells is a quieter beach situated between Els Griells residential estate and the pleasant surroundings of the Vell Natural Reserve at the lower end. The major water sports companies operate from this beach.

Platja Gran is a great beach for water sports lovers with pedal boats, pleasure boats, water skiing, kayaks, sailing school, windsurfing, and much more.

The facilities are also excellent, including showers, beach cafes, esplanade, car park, marina, lifeguard and rescue service, first aid, amphibian chairs and medical care.

Platja de la Pletera is the least developed and least crowded stretch of beach. Together with the Ter Vell Natural Reserve, it is included in the Baix Empordà Wetlands dunes and lagoons restoration project. Difficulty of access makes this a peaceful, uncrowded spot, in a site of great natural beauty.

Leisure & recreation
Tennis, golf, hacking, hiking and walking are all popular activities well catered for in and around Estartit.

Water sport facilities can be found on the more popular beaches, The many quiet coves nearby are a mecca for divers, especially off the Medas Islands with its rich maritime reserve.

Eating out
The town has many good restaurants and bars where you can sample the traditional seafood and other dishes of the region. The international palate is also well catered.

Cuisine
The gastronomy of Catalonia is rich and varied. Principally it is the typical Mediterranean diet of fish and seafood with fresh vegetables, olives and olive oil rice and pasta.

We recommend that visitors try some traditional Catalan dishes whilst on holiday, especially delicious are 

Escudella I Carn D'olla, vegetable broth with pork, veal and chicken. Pa Amb Tomàquet, 

simply rustic bread, can be toasted, rubbed with tomato pulp and dressed with oil and salt; these delcious breakfast can also be served with ham, sausage or tortilla.



Coca is a very thin dough baked with onions, peppers and other vegetables served with and meats, or fish (especially sardines).

Nightlife
Nightlife is fairly low key, although there are several places, which cater for those who like to stay up late.

Climate
Hot summers are cooled by gentle sea breezes, with the rest of the year offering generally pleasant and mild conditions.
