L’Estartit is quality tourism, action tourism.  

The variety of landscapes makes L’Estartit an ideal starting point for exploring the area. Go alone or with a guide and discover: a world of new sounds and colours in the hundreds of different species of birds, plants and trees; the protected Ter Vell wetlands, with a rich natural heritage; La Gola , the singularly beautiful area at the mouth of the River Ter; impressive Montgrí Massif, with its 13th century castle; the Montgrí coastline with over 10 km of cliffs, small coves and rocky caves accessible only on foot or by boat; the fortified farmhouses recalling an age when local people lived in fear of pirate attacks.  

The wide sandy beach is not the only way to enjoy the sea! Discover the rich marine life on a glass-bottomed boat trip from L’Estartit harbour to the Medes Islands or along the coast. Scuba-dive or snorkel in the waters around the Medes Islands, situated one mile from the harbour, and observe the hundreds of different species of fish, coral, seaweeds and invertebrates in a fantastic world of colour.

ILLES MEDES

Located just a mile off the coast in front of L’Estartit beach, The Medes Islands archipelago is part of the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter Nature Park.

The Medes archipelago, has seven islets and a surface area of about 23 hectares. The Medes Islands are today one of the most important marine flora and fauna reserves in the western Mediterranean, as well as being a popular scuba diving destination.

The Medes archipelago, has seven islets and a surface area of about 23 hectares. The Medes Islands are today one of the most important marine flora and fauna reserves in the western Mediterranean, as well as being a popular scuba diving destination. Twenty years of protection have brought about a spectacular recovery of the wealth of the seabed, the marine environment and the islands themselves. Companies operating in the area offer attractive trips in glass-bottomed boats around the islands and along the equally stunning Montgrí coast. The wide range of water and underwater activities available must comply with the regulations that have enabled the preservation of this natural space.
