Estartit’s (or L’Estartit) beaches are of the postcard kind – think shallow waters, golden sands and spectacular scenery. Set between the Montgrí Mountains and the Mediterranean, this fishing village-turned-summer playground has all you need for the holiday of your dreams.
The town has an unhurried and elegant vibe with a range of accommodation options. From the high-end to the classic holiday home, your Estartit holiday can be ask laid-back or ask luxurious as you like.
Many holidaymakers are drawn to the town’s rocky coastline, which is packed with peaceful coves, though the main beach in town is a smooth ribbon of white sand. Fly-and-flopping is standard on an Estartit holiday, but you could consider hiring a boat from the classy marina to explore more hidden beaches – some are only accessible by water.
Looking for something more active? Watersports are popular here. Glide along the sea on a stand-up paddleboard or get your adrenaline pumping on a jet ski or fly-board. If you prefer to be under the water instead of on it, Estartit is also one of Spain’s best scuba diving spots. Less than a mile off the coast, the Medes Islands (Illes Medes) are a diver’s dream. Considered one of the most important marine reserves in the western Mediterranean, with crystal-clear waters to boot, you’ll discover coral reefs, seagrass meadows and plenty of marine wildlife.
Mix up your beach days with one on the road; day trips are easy from Estartit. One for walkers is the hike up the Roca Maura Mountain, where you can put a sizable dent in your daily step count and enjoy views out to the town and harbour. Alternatively, hop in your hire car to visit the neighbouring village of Torroella de Montgrí and the remains of its towering castle.
Surrounding traditional Catalan villages, such as Pals, Palafrugell and Palamós, are all within 20 miles of Estartit and are definitely worth a visit for a deeper insight into the culture of the region.
