Cala Montgó

Cala Montgó is a small beach located between the municipalities of Torroella de Montgrí and L’Escala. Tucked between Punta Ventosa and Punta del Milà, Cala Montgó forms a small natural bay, called the Gulf of Montgó. The unique form of the terrain here protects it from the tramuntana and rough waves, which led the Roman civilisation long ago to establish a landing point.

The beach at Cala Montgó is of fine sand, with clear and deep waters ideal for all snorkelling and diving fans. On the north side you can see part of the Montgó residential development, while the other side features a Mediterranean pine forest, perfect for a stroll along its paths.

The proximity to the Medes Islands Natural Park and the nearby dive site of the sunken ship “El Marmoler” make this cove a meeting point for divers from all over, who go in search of a glimpse of the local species of fish and algae.
