Aiguamolls de l'Empordà natural park
The Montgrí natural park, a must-visit during your holiday!
In the province of Girona, overlooking a coastline that stretches from L’Escala to L’Estartit, the Montgrí natural park encompasses a vast diversity of scenery between sea and mountain. Its summit may only be a mere 311m above sea-level but the Montgrí Massif, the highest point of the park, offers a spectacular panorama over the coast of Empordà, from the Bay of Roses all the way to the Medes Islands. And not forgetting your visit to the famous Montgrí castle that awaits you at the top!
To make the most of its vast range of landscapes and the very special climate of the Costa Brava, you can count on our Sandaya campsite! It’s waiting to welcome you with all the family, with your friends or just the two of you for a sublime stay in a fully-equipped cottage or on a shady camping pitch. In addition to its nearby beaches, the campsite’s swimming pools, paddling pools and multi-lane slides invite you to cool off whatever the time of day. And when it comes to keeping in shape, you can rely on the campsite’s sports activities and entertainment!
Visit the Montgrí natural park with the family
After all it’s only natural; a wide range of landscapes means an equally wide range of activities to try! In the Montgrí natural park, there really is something for every taste and for all the family: hiking on the heights of the Montgrí Massif, bike rides in the wetlands of Baix Ter or even watersports to explore the Medes Islands. A summer rich in adventures awaits you when you come camping on the Costa Brava!
To make the most of a panorama over this unique natural ensemble, head for the village of Torroella de Montgrí. Once there, the Cami dels Tres Pins footpath will lead you to Montgrí’s famous castle in just 30 minutes. Climb to the top of its towers for a breathtaking view!
Visit the Montgrí natural park as a couple
The Montgrí natural park offers some delightful activities for nature-lovers in search of a romantic excursion hand-in-hand. Beyond the unmissable walk to the Montgrí castle, there are plenty of other waymarked trails that are more than worth exploring, such as the footpath to the Saint Catherine hermitage. The picnic areas offer the chance of a well-deserved break after your climb! For your walk back down, why not take the route that passes by the Cau del Duc cave, inhabited by prehistoric man some 3 million years ago!
After the arid landscapes of the massif, it’s time to cool off down at the seaside. One of the headline activities in the Montgri natural park is an underwater exploration around the Medes Islands, a nature reserve renowned for the wealth of its sea bed. So how about trying a scuba diving session together, just the two of you?
