Where the Montgrí massif dips its feet in the sea you’ll find L’Estartit, the coastal area of Torroella de Montgrí. This is a town whose seafaring past can still be savoured and where the beaches and coves share the limelight with the Medes islands. Beach lovers will enjoy the five kilometres of fine and shallow sand on the town’s main beach. If you prefer rocky coves, head to Calella cove. If you want a little of both, discover the Pedrosa cove, hidden away between pines and rocks. And if you’re a scuba diving and snorkelling enthusiast, you have the underwater paradise of the Medes islands, one of the best nature reserves in the Mediterranean.
