"Small seaside resort on the Costa Brava." L'Estartit by Jerelis

It lost it's own identity and charm.

L'Estartit is a small town and seaside resort on the Costa Brava. I guess that L'Estartit lost its own identity as a fishing village, because of tourism in the Costa Brava brought a large influx of visitors to the town during the summer months. You won't be able to miss this influence.

Snorkel paradise indeed.

Tourism has been growing ever since the 1990s in L'Estartit. Lucky enough they were able to see that the area's fortunes needed a revival. By this I mean the underwater beauty of the Illes Medes and the large and well-equipped sports marina, because this will keep divers, sailors and snorkelers coming back year after year. We booked ourselves a snorkeling tour by the Illes Medes. Snorkeling is possible in almost any body of water, but near the Illes Medes are minimal waves, warm water, and some beautiful fishes to see near the surface. An ideal snorkeling spot!
