Explore the environment

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.

A wealth of choices

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.
