The Spanish Venice

Empuriabrava, nicknamed the “Spanish Venice”,
is a town on the Costa Brava with a population of over 15,000.

It was built in the 1960s, inspired by the Miami model in Florida.
The town’s history dates back to 1964, when the Marquis de Sant Morí, a great admirer of Port-Grimaud, teamed up with two local entrepreneurs to initially create an international flying club, which would be combined with a residential area.

In 1967, construction began on what was to become Europe’s largest marina, with over 5,000 berths. Today, Empuriabrava is a magnificent residential area, criss-crossed by more than 30 kilometres of canals, offering a unique living environment on the Costa Brava. These canals, where residents can moor their boats right next to their homes, give the town its unique charm and character.

But Empuriabrava is much more than a nautical destination.
The town is nestled in the Bay of Roses, an area of great natural beauty, and is at the gateway to the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park. This park, made up of marshes and wetlands, is an important habitat for migratory birds and offers opportunities for hiking and wildlife watching.

In terms of culture, Empuriabrava offers easy access to Catalonia’s historic gems, such as the medieval towns of Castelló d’Empúries and Roses. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of local festivals throughout the year, reflecting the cultural richness of the region.

The beaches

Empuriabrava’s Centre beach is the resort’s main beach, offering a vast and generous space. There is free parking on the seafront.

The beach is very well equipped, with facilities for beach volleyball and beach soccer, toilets, showers and a play area for younger children. What’s more, it is largely accessible to people with reduced mobility, thanks to mats that facilitate access to the sea from the entry points.

A pleasant pedestrian promenade stretches for almost 2 kilometres along the beach. There are also several restaurants to satisfy your culinary tastes.

Between Santa-Margarita and Empuriabrava lies an almost deserted area with two campsites and marshes.
This is where you’ll find the great Rubina beach, which stretches for around two kilometres.

This beach has a lifeguard post, guinguette-style beach restaurants (known as “Chiringuito” in Catalan) and improved access. It is a wild beach bordering the Aiguamolls Natural Park, and also offers free parking for visitors.

Services and shops

Empuriabrava is a vibrant residential community, with around 15,000 inhabitants in normal times, although this figure can rise to 100,000 during the summer season.

The town offers a full range of services for its residents, including supermarkets, restaurants, shops, schools, dental and medical clinics and a variety of other businesses.

It also offers a multitude of water sports activities, such as sailing schools, jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving, kitesurfing, kitfoil and deep-sea fishing, available to both amateurs and professionals.

Empuriabrava also has a very popular aerodrome for parachute jumpers, which has become a European and world reference for aerial sports. The town is well served by well-organised transport links, with regular bus services to the towns of Roses, Figueras and Castelló d’Empúries, as well as to Girona, where the region’s main airport is located. This makes it easy for residents and visitors to the region to get around.
