The majority of residences have a mooring at the bottom of their garden, and navigating around the 24km of canals is a unique and enjoyable experience that you are unable to replicate almost anywhere else in the world. Canal tours are readily available, with some stopping for a long lunch at the marina waterfront half way through.

The town itself has two six kilometre beaches, many shops, and a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. An open air market is also held on the seafront every Saturday morning, where you can pick up some high quality fruit and vegetables to cook with in your self-catering accommodation. If you fancy something a little more adventurous, tennis, golf, scuba diving and skydiving are all popular activities in Empuriabrava, and you can even learn to sail a boat, with a number of sailing schools in the area.

If you fancy getting away from it all, you can head to the Parc Naturel Del’s Aiquamolls – a nearby nature area that is excellent for walking and cycling. Here you can enjoy a picnic, take in the sea views, visit the bird sanctuary, and bird watch from designated observation points.

The beach was very clean and safe when seated watching the boats going in and out the channel the sea breeze was very refreshing.
