At the beach; Near water
This once sleepy fishing village has become a popular holiday destination with Spaniards and international tourists, especially the British, Dutch and Germans. Being a fairly quiet and relaxed resort, it appeals mostly to families with young children. However, there are also plenty of leisure activities and night clubs to keep teenagers amused during the summer months. L’Estartit still retains the old world charm of a traditional Spanish fishing harbour. One of its major assets is the fact that it overlooks the lovely Medes Islands, an archipelago of seven islands which together make up one of the most important nature and marine reserves in the western Mediterranean. You'll find L’Estartit to be a compact resort with plenty of local shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, offering international and Catalan dishes, including fresh seafood. If you're tired of the beach, there are plenty of leisure activities to enjoy including sailing, boat excursions, golf, tennis, cycling and horseback riding. L’Estartit is also ideally placed for some great family days out. Europe's biggest water park is just outside Lloret de Mar and Marine World, where the numerous attractions include dolphin and sea lion shows.
