5 essential stops for a getaway by car

From L’Estartit to Palamós

Between Palamos and L’Estartit there is a rosary of charming towns: Palafrugell, with its sandy areas of Tamariu, Llafranc and Calella; the coastal strip of Pals and its medieval town, with the Pedró viewpoint over the Medes and the intense blue Mediterranean, or Begur and its succession of beaches and coves with transparent waters, ideal for enjoying all imaginable nautical activities.

The best vantage point to contemplate this wealth is the Montgrí castle. Built between 1294 and 1301 and located 300 meters above the sea, from there you can see the Bay of Roses, Canigó, Montseny, les Gavarres, Baix Ter and the Medes Islands, one of the most important flora and fauna reserves of the Mediterranean and paradise for divers.

If you go with children or simply if you love the sea, the Museum of the Mediterranean is worth visiting with the children, also home to the Interpretation Center of the Montgrí Natural Park, les Illes Medes i el Baix Ter. In addition, beaches such as L’Estartit or coves such as Montgó invite you to practice nautical activities. Come to Estació Nàutica L’Estartit-Illes Medes and enjoy the sea in all its extension.

We call in Palamos, an ideal tourist town for families. Be sure to visit the Fisheries Museum and sign up for the many nautical activities that the municipality offers.
